Are you guys still recovering from Super Bowl? Nah, just me? I definitely made way too much food for just us two adults and one kiddo. Then may or may not have got a little crazy and ordered $40 worth of bacon cheeseburger pizzas after Andy went to bed. Don’t worry mom, only a moderate amount of alcohol was involved. It was a Sunday after all! [Read more…]
I’m baaaack! Are you, my ever loyal readers, still even here? I hope so! I missed you and this space and my culinary creativity. In case you missed the big news, I had a baby. But wait, that isn’t all! While I was partly away due to spending precious, cuddly, long, sleepless nights with my little Jacky boy, I have also been MIA due to a computer crash. Ye olde HP crashed and wouldn’t even start up. Funny how these issues started happening when my husband began to share my laptop with me. Not sayin’, I’m just sayin’. [Read more…]
I swear to the Lord, I am so done with summer. I got my fruit fill. I kind of got my heirloom tomato fill. (See last week’s post for the story behind that). I am ready for a gradual decline into the seventies, sixties, and then (Gasp) the fifties. I am ready for layers and not sweating my pregnant belly off every single time I step outside.
I will probably live to regret this statement once I am trapped indoors with ten inches of snow on the ground, a newborn, a two year old, and a dog staring at me wondering what we are going to do next. Until then, I shall rant on. [Read more…]
Women be crazy! That’s what I would say if I were going to approach this blog post like a stand-up comedian, be it a not so good stand-up comedian. But yeah, women be crazy! And when I say women, I am clearly speaking of myself here.
Why am I so crazy? Well, it all went down over the weekend. I had been looking forward to this little thing called the heirloom tomato festival happening at the Chicago Botanic Gardens. I added it to our Google calendar (much to Mike’s chagrin). I had been seeing a lot of pictures of these beautiful, ripe, and multicolored tomatoes all over my social media feed and I was getting sooo amped up! Yes, I know that in itself sounds crazy already but lay off me I am a food blogger/lover/hungry pregnant lady. [Read more…]
I am at a loss here. This weather is crushing my soul. In the short span of a day, it went from a balmy 70 degrees to a chilly 30 degrees. That means Andy, Weezer, and I were pretty much outside for an entire day and then back to shut ins the next. Do you know who doesn’t understand that you cannot play outside for an entire day when it is kind of chilly like that? I get it. Even Weezer gets it. But, Andy, uh uh. Can’t tell him nuthin!
