How was your weekend? We had a good weekend and accomplished a lot.
On Friday, we went to a local play gym for a little play time with Camryn. They offer a monthly membership (which we do not have), but you can also just drop in for their classes or free play time for a small fee. So, that’s what we did! We then grabbed lunch on the way home.
On Saturday, we hung around the house for the first half of the day and got our respective runs in. Then, we met some friends and their 11 month old at a park so they could play a little bit. We decided to go grab pizza for dinner and then Ed went out with some friends and I headed home for Cam’s bedtime.
On Sunday, we became members of a new church! I have been wanting to join a church for quite some time now, but we had to find the right one. I’m so happy we did, everyone has been so welcoming. We had a luncheon with everyone and got to know some of the other new members as well. We will be baptizing Camryn there just before her first birthday.
And now, some ideas for toast, since that’s been a common theme in our meals latey.
4 Ideas for Topping Your Toast
None of these are novel, but different for us since we usually stick to avocado or pb & j. And to be honest, we will probably always stick to the above because they are delicious options, but sometimes you just want to amp it up. I also like to use toast as a canvas for introducing new flavors, textures and food items for Camryn. Pro tip for all you momma’s out there. Sometimes toast can be a little too dry and tough for babies, so dipping it in breastmilk, formula or any form of liquid can help!
1. Yogurt Toast
Sometimes I’ll swirl peanut butter and jelly into the yogurt toast, sometimes I’ll top it with nuts/seeds and fruit, and sometimes I’ll just use a flavored yogurt on the toast. All are delicious and you really can’t go wrong. Plus, it’s extra protein, calcium and probiotics.
2. Chickpea Toast
Love adding more protein and fiber through chickpeas. Camryn really loves beans, so sometimes we add some to our toast too! Usually, I’ll use either hummus or avocado as the creamy base (you want something for the chickpeas to stick to), and then I’ll add them on top.

3. Hummus Toast
I love hummus toast for another savory option. I usually add red pepper flakes and some hemp seeds, and the opportunities are endless based on what flavor hummus you like. If you do want a sweeter option, adding this sweet potato cookie dough dip to toast is a game changer!
4. Salmon or Tuna Toast
This is a spin-off a tuna or salmon sandwich and an upgrade to avocado toast. Layering toast with avocado and canned tuna or salmon and sea salt is a delicious combination. Sometimes, I’ll also add barbecue sauce, hot sauce, or balsamic vinegar depending on my mood. Such a fun upgrade!
