Whole Foods with My Baby Girl

I can now say, after 7 months, I have mastered the art of errands with my daughter and it's all thanks to this....
I love love love my Moby. It has saved me many times and I can't express how wonderful baby-wearing is; especially since my daughter hates the stroller. I tried on several carriers and this was the winner. It's soft, supportive and really easy on my back. I put it on before I get in the car for errands and then easily wrap her in the parking lot and off we go. 

Last weekend I headed to Whole Foods just to pick up dinner and yogurt (how that amounted to $65?) but it was worth it. I spent a fun-filled hour wearing my baby and shopping at one of my favorite stores. On the menu for that night- Steak with Chimichurri, Rice Pilaf,  Beer and McConnell's Ice Cream.

Let's start with beer. This is super yummy and only $5.99.

Steak with chimichurri and rice pilaf (I can't seem to flip the photo) . The rice is a box mix. The 365 brand with mushrooms and herbs.

If you've never had chimichurri, you're missing out. It's very simple to make.

Chimichurri Recipe


  • 1 cup firmly packed fresh flat-leaf parsley, trimmed of thick stems
  • 3-4 garlic cloves
  • 2 Tbsps fresh oregano leaves (can sub 2 teaspoons dried oregano)
  • 1/2 cup olive oil
  • 2 Tbsp red or white wine vinegar
  • 1 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 teaspoon red pepper flakes


1 Finely chop the parsley, fresh oregano, and garlic (or process in a food processor several pulses). Place in a small bowl.
2 Stir in the olive oil, vinegar, salt, pepper, and red pepper flakes. Adjust seasonings.
Serve immediately or refrigerate. If chilled, return to room temperature before serving. Can keep for a day or two.
