Omar turned the big one month yesterday and he was cranky as ever last night...
We think he gets that way when we take him out in the day. Chris & I have always been busy bees so we figured that we'd take him out every couple of days to get him used to our routine but he's not having it. I had to finish my last paper of the Spring Semester (Hallelujah!) by midnight tonight so Chris took Duke out for the day so I could concentrate on "organizational structures" and to give our little baby some quiet time. It worked like a charm, Omar slept the whole day and I was able to get so much done!
Chris did some grocery shopping and brought home tons of fruit so I made Mexican Fruit Salad
aka Street Fruit Salad - You know, chunks of fresh pineapple, cantaloupe, cucumber and watermelon with fresh squeezed lime juice, chili powder and chamoy
. Mmm! It also tastes really good with mango, strawberries and jicama. Super refreshing and perfect for hot Summer days!
There is also a cream version of Mexican Fruit Salad called "Bionicos".
Sometimes it's good with just lime juice & chili powder...
And sometimes it's better with chamoy! Let it marinate in chamoy for an hour or more... That really sets it off!
