It's been 4 months since Mr.Man moved to his new job in downtown Dallas and we're loving it so far. We're so grateful for this God-given opportunity and we don't ever want to take it for granted. Now since the sun is out more often and the weather is not as cold as it was at the beginning of the year, we finally got to do what I've been wanting to do for a while : taking him out on a lunch picnic with J around downtown Dallas.
It was a no-brainer to pick Klyde-Warren Park, 'cause it's only 2 minutes away from his office and it's more spacious and kid-friendly than the other parks at downtown Dallas.
And even though they have tons of food trucks there at the park, I decided to bring our own homemade meals that were healthy, filling, affordable and yummy!
Spinach and Almond Salad in A Jar
Super easy to make. I layered spinach, some kale, almonds, cherry tomatoes, cheese cubes in two mason jars and topped them with my Chia-Apple Cider Vinegar dressing (made of chia seeds, apple cider vinegar, maple syrup and olive oil).
Crunchy, cheesy, nutty, tangy, and sweet at the same time! I also brought some turkey sammiches with mayo and kethup on wholeweat bread.
Look at him, the dude was hungry!
Now since he had to go back to work, I couldn't bring him anything 'boozy' to drink. So I made some...
Strawberry & Rosemary Water + Virgin Mimosas
I used limeade and Sprite to substitute the champagne. And I added some cut fruits to add more color to it! And for dessert we had...
Baked Mini Donuts with Powdered Sugar
So delicious, affordable to make, and hmm...I wanna say healthy but not really. I mean, they might be baked but they're still donuts. But you don't eat desserts to be healthy anyways right? So yeah click here for the recipe!
Ow yea, he sure is one, just like his mama ;)
It's always nice to sneak some quality time in between our busy days. Next week is going to be even sunnier! I wish you all a lovely weekend with your family and I'll leave you with this piece of advice from my picnic box right here.
