Well, hello everyone! It’s been a minute since I’ve posted anything on here. I do have a reason though – I’m pregnant with my second child! We basically found out days after my last post on here in August….and the morning sickness (or all day sickness) started shortly after! From August until October, I was completely useless when it came to cooking and food. I was basically a vegetarian for three months because the smell of meat would send waves of nausea through me, and my husband and toddler had to survive on his cooking and on Skip the Dishes.
I’m about 20 weeks along now and I’m finally feeling better, so stay tuned for more recipes as I start cooking more often. I’m still craving a lot of vegetables over meat, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. I do have more questionable cravings though, including super sugary iced tea, Cheez Whiz, basic Chinese food (like ginger beef and chicken balls), and gummy candies.
My toddler is also super clingy lately – it’s like she knows that a big change is about to happen in our family. She will cuddle with me for an hour after I pick her up from daycare. I’m not complaining – I need that chill time too, but it does make it hard to make dinner every night. Stay tuned for even easier recipes coming on this blog, as I figure out what I can easily pop in the oven without sacrificing cuddle time!
