My Little Sardine

May 1, 2012

Good news this afternoon!!


He’s healthy from head to toe. And he’s still a boy :mrgreen: !!

Little leg, little fist

The sardine shot! Nice [non-edible] spine : )


More details about the big U/S on BERF on Friday!

I got home just in time for a snack before I jetted off to prenatal yoga. Apple + string cheese! Yoga was awesome, per usual!


I nearly talked Matt into going out to dinner after I arrived home from my post-yoga walk home down the Downtown Mall. But magically we pulled this delicious pasta dish off in just 20 minutes.


Whole Wheat Linguini with Shrimp + Bacon in a Kale-Tomato Sauce



We cooked up some chopped local bacon and removed it from the pan before adding about 15 frozen/thawed-in-the-sink shrimp. Once they shrimp were brown, we poured over about 1.5 cups of tomato sauce (Whole Foods Red Pepper) and stirred in 2 cups of raw kale to simma down. Dumped over the cooked pasta!





I now have two bumps: one is full of baby and the other, linguini : )


I am in a TANK TOP on the porch after 8pm. Matt is digging in the garden. Totally lovin’ this warm weather!

Why go out to a restaurant when you can pull off such a delish dinner at home! Very restaurant worthy! I am snuggled up in sweatshirt and wool socks…so jealous!

It’s way nicer there than it is in San Diego…I’m jealous! :)


11 Julie H. of Spinach and Sprinkles May 1, 2012 at 7:51 pm

Hooray! :) A million times hooray!
Our little one was NOT into the sono appointment- it hid the entire time and it made the appointment last almost 2.5 hours. WOWZA! And we still didn’t get a good picture! What a cutie you’ve got there!


12 KathEats May 1, 2012 at 7:57 pm

2.5 hours!!! Ours was about 30 mins!


13 Chelsea @ Designs on Dinner May 1, 2012 at 7:52 pm

Glad all is well with Baby Kerf and Baby Mama Kerf! Looking forward to your Friday post. :)

So happy to hear everything went well today! Baby KERF is growing up so fast! :)


15 Jennifer May 1, 2012 at 8:02 pm

He’s already cute. :) I’m so glad that all is well. Now all you can do is countdown the days until you meet him. :)


16 Catalina @ Cake with Love May 1, 2012 at 8:03 pm

Kath, congrats on your healthy growing baby boy!!! I am so excited to see this pictures!!! By the way your pasta looks delicious, your posts always make me hungry and inspire me at the same time!! Have a nice evening!

18 Donna May 1, 2012 at 8:18 pm

So relieved that everything went well at your appointment! And that dinner looks amazing! (much better than the tuna salad we had tonight).


19 Nicole (MyLoveForCooking) May 1, 2012 at 8:23 pm

How precious! Enjoy every amazing moment. :)


20 Laura @ She Eats Well May 1, 2012 at 8:46 pm

21 Ashley @ Coffee, Cake and Cardio May 1, 2012 at 9:06 pm

Adorable Kath!! How special!

Dinner looks awesome.


22 Mary B. May 1, 2012 at 9:10 pm

Happy for you that the baby is doing so well! I have a healthy eating question for you. Do you ever think about what you would do if you or Matt wasn’t so into all the tastes of healthy food? I think everything you guys cook and eat looks yummy but my husband only likes a very limited amount of things. It makes staying heathy with him around hard. I just wonder since you and Matt seem pretty synched up on the food front.

I love the blog BTW. I just started reading.



23 KathEats May 1, 2012 at 9:21 pm

I really have no idea! I would probably do a lot more small portions with big side salads (which is what he did when I didn’t cook veggies in the first trimester!)


24 mary @ minutespermile May 1, 2012 at 9:12 pm

the humidity has turned my curls into a complete afro! totally worth it though. jealous of your deck. i need to move out of the city and into the south!


25 Amanda @ Veggies n Dogs May 1, 2012 at 9:28 pm

That pastsa looks delicious! Thanks for the recipe. I always forget how simple shrimp is to prepare.


26 Jamie @ Don't Forget the Cinnamon May 1, 2012 at 9:29 pm

My oh my he’s cute already!!!!!!!!!


27 gloria May 1, 2012 at 9:36 pm

Congrats love your boys pictures!!
dinner look amazing!!


28 Jen May 1, 2012 at 9:54 pm

Glad all is well thus far! Did you add cheese to the meal? Looks like some melted mozza…mmmm 😉


29 j3nn May 1, 2012 at 10:46 pm

Glad to hear the little sardine is doing well!!

That pasta dish looks WAY better than what a restaurant can serve. That’s a great flavor and texture combo!


30 Sarah May 1, 2012 at 10:57 pm

Awww. Little sweet pea!


31 Nicole May 1, 2012 at 11:15 pm

love seeing your sweet baby bump! I need to backtrack a few months and figure out how far along you are, this is so exciting! I love reading up on other gals going through pregnancy, it’s like we’re part of an awesome club or something 😀

and the linguine looks incredible! So jealous of your warm weather post 8pm, we got a few sunny days here in Seattle a weekend or two ago and now it’s back to feeling like November. ’tis life, I s’pose. I guess I can still break out a few of the Fall sweaters while it’s here!

Have an awesome week, and congrats again on expecting your little boy :)


32 KathEats May 2, 2012 at 6:07 am

Almost 23 weeks!


33 Katie @ Creature of Habit May 1, 2012 at 11:39 pm

Oh I love a good pasta dinner. I don’t eat it too often but every time I do I’m reminded of how much I love it. It’s all about a good sauce like this one.


34 Amelia May 1, 2012 at 11:53 pm

Looks delicious, and your little one looks perfect! Isn’t it mind-blowing that a year from you’ll have an active, giggling, crazy new family member?! I still can’t believe Lucy used to be a tiny thing we saw on an ultra-sound. Life is amazing.


35 Jenee Libby May 2, 2012 at 4:00 am

Congrats! And boy that pasta dish looks/sounds yummy…will try this week :)


36 Willemijn Davidson May 2, 2012 at 6:24 am

37 Fran@ Broken Cookies Don't Count May 2, 2012 at 6:26 am

Pasta is so great for a quick meal. Love it!


38 Hope @ With A Side Of Hope May 2, 2012 at 6:47 am

So glad to hear that your ultrasound went well! :) This dinner looks amazing! Sometimes the best dinners are the most simple.


39 Melissa @ HerGreenLife May 2, 2012 at 8:44 am

Ha — I joked about being pregnant with twins — the actual baby and an “Italian food baby” — after our trip to Italy during my second tri 😉


40 ~Christy @ wonderofallthings May 2, 2012 at 9:49 am

Love it! Looks delish as always :)


41 Angel7 May 2, 2012 at 12:24 pm

That pasta looks healthy and delish! Mama and baby are happy and full :)


42 Kammie @ Sensual Appeal May 2, 2012 at 6:27 pm
