...bun in the oven...

Remember when the blog suffered for a few weeks a month or so ago?  I wondered if it would suffer for longer. I couldn't cook and all I wanted was boxed mac and cheese and whatever else a 5 year old would eat.

Needless to say I think this is the best recipe Benjamin and I have cooked up yet.  This little nub will be entering our lives in late September, but until then it's growing in my belly in a major way!

I'm thankfully back to cooking and eating pretty normal and am not falling asleep around 8:30/9:00.  We're enjoying weekends where we can sleep in knowing those days are numbered and won't enter our lives again for 18 years or more.

As far as this blog and cooking goes, I have high hopes this little one will be a good eater and will not even ask for the crust to be cut off from it's bread.  These are my naive high hopes.  I'm also looking forward to making baby food for it- i.e. pureeing vegetables.  Exciting!

So, that's your Sunday News.  Back to blogging about a cake I made this week and then again this afternoon because, "the baby wanted it...."
