Happy New Year!!

5 Month Baby Update, baby, boy


Harold turned 5 months old yesterday so today I've got a baby update to share with you. This was an exciting month in Hal's life. He learned to roll and sit up. He figured out how to splash in the bathtub with such precision that he is able to soak his parents and the bathroom, all while smiling proudly to himself.

He also starting to sit in his highchair at the table and sleep in his crib at night. We took the pictures in this post today and of course we filmed a video talking about the month.

A bit of unrelated housekeeping: We are back to daily vlogging over on the ManfridaTV channel so if you watch that then plan on us uploading every day at 3pm (eastern time). I'm also hoping to be able to get more content up on my main AliceManfrida channel as well as more consistent posts here on this blog. We have started working on getting the whole family (aka The Baby) on more of a schedule/routine so that should help with the logistics. Anyway, that's the hope for the new year. :)

Thanks for reading!

Avocado Toast Recipe

Beautiful pictures of avocado toast are all over Instagram and I know that, like me, you want to be both healthy and trendy with your breakfast choices so today I thought I'd share this super easy Avocado Toast Recipe with you. Once you master these steps, all you'll need is a classy plate and some great lighting and the world will be double tapping your brunch pics like crazy!


Avocado Toast Recipe

Ingredients:
avocado
salt
pepper
cilantro
lime juice
pine nuts


Step One:
Put the avocado in a bowl. If you make crisscrossing cuts with a knife it's a little easier to get it all out either by scooping it with a spoon or just squeezing it out of the skin.


Step Two:
Mash it with a fork.


Step Three:
Add salt, pepper, cilantro and lime juice. Obviously fresh cilantro and juice squeezed from an actual lime would probably be nicer, but this is real life. Don't beat yourself up over it.


Step Four:
Add some pine nuts and mix them in.

(I forgot to take a picture of this step on the day with the good lighting s I snapped one when I made this again a few days later. Unfortunately it was cloudy because the weather hates me. Oh well.)


Step Five:
Spoon the mixture onto toast and eat it!
