Reading, Writing, Listening, Driving

April 30, 2012

We are home, long trip under our belts and several hours at the wheel for me. The I-81 trip is a bit longer and often has a batch of traffic (which we hit Sad smile ) but the drive is more straightforward and seems to go just as fast.

I wrote a few BERF posts and did a little reading.

Matt and I shared handfuls of almonds on the ride, and I finished the last (most recent) episode of Pregtastic. No idea why there seems to be a hiatus!? Luckily I’ve moved on to New Moms, New Babies, the motherhood one, which I think will be nice to listen to in advance of becoming a mom. Sadly it seems that NMNB hasn’t made a new episode in a year. What will I do when I’ve listened to them all!?

Speaking of podcasts, here is the first ever Cville Food Bloggers Round Table podcast!!

Once we were home, we put together a quick dinner with surplus ingredients


Red potatoes, boiled, drained and smashed, topped with greek yogurt, S+P, and cheese



Triple yum!


Leftover bean salad with goat cheese (I couldn’t finish this – too much cool cucumber!)


And a pile of local strawberries!!


Plus two episodes of the office and some unpacking.


We’re setting in for a quiet evening. TOMORROW IS OUR BIG ULTRASOUND! I am sooo excited. And nervous. And excited.

excited to hear the podcast – did you know “the actor’s diet” originally was a podcast back in the day?


4 KathEats April 30, 2012 at 8:02 pm

I did not!


5 Caroline @ After Dinner Dance April 30, 2012 at 7:57 pm

Local fresh strawberries are the best! Have fun tomorrow :)


6 Grace @ Grace Dishes April 30, 2012 at 8:02 pm

Love your vamped up leftovers. I do something similar by the end of the week when I find a bunch of bowls of this and that in the fridge :)


7 Cait's Plate April 30, 2012 at 8:07 pm

Ahhh! So excited to listen to the podcast!!

And for the ultrasound! Good luck!


8 Becca April 30, 2012 at 8:08 pm

Your Strawberries look delicious :) Good Luck tomorrow!!


9 Lauren @ Oatmeal after Spinning April 30, 2012 at 8:08 pm

I need to be more creative when throwing together leftovers for dinner- yours always look so good (and so simple!). And local strawberries? Ohhh man. I haven’t seen any local ones around here yet. But I’m going to stock up as soon as I do (same goes for blueberries!).
Good luck with the appointment tomorrow (hope you can sleep well tonight!)

Me too!


12 Katie @ Peace Love & Oats April 30, 2012 at 8:27 pm

I LOVE boiled red potatoes – they were one of my favorite side dishes my mom made growing up!


13 Allison k April 30, 2012 at 8:28 pm

I was so anxious about my ultrasound…it was the only time I had high blood pressure during my pregnancy!


14 Kayley Ray April 30, 2012 at 8:32 pm

I had no idea I’d listen to the whole podcast when I pressed play! 41 minutes later, all I want to do is get in my car and drive to CVille to eat! Thanks for sharing. It’s always nice to hear you talk!


15 KathEats April 30, 2012 at 9:00 pm

Fun! Thanks for listening!


16 Kaila @healthyhelperblog! April 30, 2012 at 8:44 pm

You got me craving potatoes!!! Gotta put that on the menu for this week for sure!!


17 Kelley April 30, 2012 at 8:55 pm

Have fun at your ultrasound tomorrow! Such a special day!


18 Catalina @ Cake with Love April 30, 2012 at 9:18 pm

I have to try potatoes an yogurt, the strawberries look so fresh!!! Good luck on the ultrasound tomorrow, I am sure everything is fine so just enjoy the moment when you hear the heart beat!! :)

Sunny left Pregtastic (she was host AND producer) to have her baby. She started a new business, New Mommy Media, which will include podcasts and programming for parents. I love the Pregtastic podcasts and I am not even pregnant yet! Hopefully Pregtastic will find a host/producer and continue with their great programming.


22 KathEats May 1, 2012 at 6:35 am

I heard that on the last show but there are zero updates since then!


23 Angel7 April 30, 2012 at 10:03 pm

Looks like a filling dinner!


24 Katie @ Talk Less, Say More April 30, 2012 at 10:15 pm

Good luck tomorrow!!
(I’m watching LOST right now thanks to you. I had already seen it but you got me wanting to watch it again.) :)


25 Cherleen @ My Personal Finance Journey April 30, 2012 at 10:16 pm

Potatoes, strawberries, cucumber… very healthy diet. I love this yummy treat! I am looking forward to that podcast.


26 Averie @ Averie Cooks April 30, 2012 at 10:25 pm

Welcome home!

I’m not even a potato person but those spuds with the greek yogurt, S+P, and cheese…mmm, I want!


27 j3nn April 30, 2012 at 10:46 pm

I had a boiled potato for dinner last night. So simple and filling.


28 daphna April 30, 2012 at 10:53 pm

Good luck! I found that ultrasound to be so cool. . . seeing the four-chambered heart, cerebrum, corpus callosum, three-vesseled cord, kidneys doin’ their thing. Hoping for a perfect result. :)


29 Antonia @ healthinspirations May 1, 2012 at 2:04 am

I am currently listening to the podcast and love it! Have fun at the ultrasound.


30 Susan H. @ The Food Allergy Chronicles May 1, 2012 at 6:31 am

Yum! Local strawberries! I enjoyed freshly picked asparagus this weekend from a friend’s garden…amazing!


31 Hope @ With A Side Of Hope May 1, 2012 at 6:53 am

Good luck with the ultrasound today! :)


32 Molly @ RDexposed May 1, 2012 at 7:11 am

Wow, I did absolutely nothing while sitting passenger seat in traffic and then once we finally were driving home. Impressive!


33 Fran@ Broken Cookies Don't Count May 1, 2012 at 7:23 am

Yummy looking dinner for being a throw together. Good luck with your ultrasound!


34 Breanna May 1, 2012 at 7:28 am

I am interested to see what the ultrasound shows. I know that your first one said you are having a boy, but I’ll be darned if your bump doesn’t look just like a GIRL BUMP! I could be wrong, but if I had to guess, I would say you are having a girl. We’ll see!


35 KathEats May 1, 2012 at 7:31 am

I am mentally prepared for anything!


36 Cheryl @ Happy is the new healthy May 1, 2012 at 7:35 am

Those potatoes look amazing! Good luck at the Ultrasound. :)


37 eftihia May 1, 2012 at 7:56 am

Kath….what is S&P?
also wanted to mention i have started eating overnight oats! what a dream…now i know why you like them so much!!!


38 KathEats May 1, 2012 at 7:58 am

salt + pepper, which I put on almost everything savory


39 donna May 1, 2012 at 8:04 am

Thinking of you this morning! Can’t wait to hear about the ultrasound (and see pics)! What an exciting time!


40 KathEats May 1, 2012 at 8:06 am

:) It’s not until 3pm!
