Pregnancy wiped me of my love for all things culinary (except cheese…ice cream…lemonade…and all those other one-ingredient cravings). I had little desire to be in the kitchen for those 9+ months. The craving to create is back, and I am glad.
Worth every life change there is or ever was:
French toast for breakfast. Nothing new, but certainly delicious. Cville Crunch bread cooked in egg and topped with bananas and plain old peanut butter and chia seeds
Mazen and I had some camera time today. Must. Remember. Every. Age.
His hair is growing in fast, and it’s hard to tell what color it is. Sometimes blonde, sometimes brown, sometimes hints of red.
I love this one. Little sneaky.
For lunch I made the best of the leftovers in our fridge.
I must make more Chimichurri Sauce!! I used it as a salad dressing today over bits of flank steak and cracklin’ cauliflower with avocado over spinach.
Grapefruit on the side
Mazen’s new favorite toy is a hand! He will turn it over in his little hands for hours.
We stopped into Great Harvest for afternoon snack while we were out. Cinnamon Raisin Walnut bread with Cinnamon Vanilla Almond Butter –
This evening I alternated nursing and cooking as I prepared a recipe for the Wisconsin Cheese Mac & Cheese blog.
I can’t share the recipe yet, but it was wonderful. You might be able to spot the ingredients and figure it out!
We ate piles of mac with simple spinach salads on the side
I made a quick dressing with the juice of an orange, 1/4 cup olive oil, 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar, 2 tsp Dijon mustard and a pinch of salt. Did you know a milk frother makes an excellent dressing mixer!? I have leftovers to use on a salad tomorrow.
I’ve been curbing my sweet tooth at night, but I do have a piece of dark chocolate after dinner most evenings. Trader Joe’s makes a little tin of pie pieces that are the perfect bite size end to the day.
