There are a million things to love about San Francisco, but this is one of my favorites:
We’re members, and this weekend, we gave Ellie her first science museum experience. Our first stop was the living roof, which is covered with native plants and absorbs 98% of the water that falls on it!
Next, we walked through the rainforest exhibit, which felt like Hawaii and had lots of birds and butterflies.
Ellie slept through the whole thing.
But she woke up when we got to the aquarium!
SO many cool fish!
The only disappointment was the penguin exhibit, which is usually my favorite. The penguins were all just kind of flopped around on the rocks, not doing anything. I guess we’ll have to go back very soon (this weekend, maybe?)
One thing I like almost as much as science museums is soup (worst tie-in ever? Oh well). This soup has it all – healthy beans and grains, cheesy pasta, and a spicy, fragrant tomato broth. The small changes I made to the original recipe were to reduce the liquid (I like my soups kind of stew-like), replace herbes de Provence with dried oregano and basil, and use kale instead of chard. It’s perfect comfort food!
