Okay, I was putting off showing what I’ve been eating the last few days, mainly out of embarrassment and a bit of laziness. But I did promise I’d be real on this blog and not sugarcoat or embellish. SO, here it is. Here’s the gist of the meals I’ve eaten in the last few days since my hubby’s gone to Germany.
It’s not like I’m broke, or depressed (well, okay, a LITTLE) or unable to cook up something scrumptious. I’ve just sort of lost my kitchen mojo and I’ve also had some REALLY bizarre cravings the last few days (those who say pregnancy cravings go away in the second trimester are sadly mistaken. Or I’m a freak ;-))
Mrs. Cubberson’s turkey stuffing bread cubes on top of microwave scrambled eggs and green beans? Basil and cheese melted on, gasp, “fake” wheat pre-sliced bread? Freezer-burned chocolate chip-cayenne pepper (yes, really) drop cookies left over from my shower? You get the picture. It’s time to get back in the kitchen and it’s time to FOLLOW RECIPES!
In the meantime, I’m naughtily enjoying the food porn my husband’s sending me from home in Bavaria, knowing full well that in just one week I’ll be eating like a human being again. I guess I should celebrate this ability to throw whatever the heck I like in a bowl and nuke it. It won’t ever happen again.
On a better note, today was the first day of December and the day I got to start opening all three of the advent calendars we have on display at home: One for Christian, one for me and one for all three of us (okay, I opened all of them for us since Christian’s not here and Hannah is here but not really here, lol). I also lit the first candle of our advent wreath while I had lunch (if you call it lunch) and played some Christmas music for me and for Hannah. I’m so into the Christmas spirit this year it almost hurts! I haven’t felt this way about Christmas since I was about 10 years old, practicing running up our spiral staircase to make it the fastest into the living room to open presents.
This year is going to be a blow-out Christmas, even if I’m in the maternity ward at the time. The nurses and staff will be LUCKY to have me as their patient! 🙂 (yes, I’ve already thought of little “gifts” for the hospital staff. God, I’m turning into Martha Stewart…)
