The is pregnancy season and we are not immune. We are expecting our second son in July and we are thrilled. Like my first pregnancy, this one has been similiar. I was a little moody during my first trimester, but that is neither here nor there.
Desserts have been the star in our house. In fact, I have a Valrhona chocoate cake cooling on the counter just waiting to be covered with deep dark chocolaty frosting. Cookies have been present on a weekly basis. I’ve made everything from oatmeal raisin to Neiman Marcus cookies. NM’s cookie recipe is one of my favorites as well as a no-fail.
Dinners have been that of casseroles and slow cooker dishes. Who can say no to a mouth watering pot roast with onions, carrots and potatoes; somthing that gets better with a day in the fridge. Oh beans how I love you. Charro beans are cheap,easy and so delicious with a side or cornbread and/or tortillas.
We have a sitter today. We are off to see a movie and grab a bite to eat. I’m craving blue cheese chips from Jasper’s. Unfortunatly, we probably won’t be making our way that far North. Hmpf.
