Cooking Creations

I have kind of been trying a lot of new recipes this weekend and it has been kind of fun. I made these bowls out of parmesan cheese that you use for salads. They were really cute and all they are made of is cheese. I love the idea although eating the whole bowl was an accomplishment. I shouldn't have made anything else for dinner because the bowls were so filling.

Last week blueberries were on sale for $1 so we bought 3 pints. We ate two of them and I froze the last one, but i should have bought 20 pints and frozen them all. Today I made these blueberry muffins from the frozen ones and they are delicious. Josh gave me a cookbook a couple of Christmas' ago called The Bread Bible and every recipe I try from there makes one of the best breads I have ever had. I wand to get her other book The Cake Bible too so I can learn to make better cakes. My recent efforts have been less than spectacular...

33 Weeks

I got told this week that I was big enough to be charged for two seats if I rode a bus. How is that for a compliment!?

32 Weeks

I can't believe how fast time is going by. She is going to be here before we know it. I have been "nesting" of sorts this weekend. I moved all sorts of things around in our condo and set up the crib to make sure we would have room for it. Everything isn't quite the way I want it to be but it is much closer than it was. I am getting really excited for her to come.
On a different note, does anyone's baby move as much as mine does? I feel like she is doing gymnastics all the time. A couple of appointments back the doctor asked if I felt her moving very often and told me to count to make sure there were at least four movements in an hour. Well, I am lucky if there are fewer than 100 movements in an hour! And most of them are not small. She loves to push up against my belly and you can see her roll across. The first time Josh saw it he thought there must be an alien in my belly! I hope she isn't this active when she is born because there is no way I will be able to keep up!

31 Weeks and I LOVE Hand-me-downs

Here I am in all my glory. I don't think that I have grown much lately. I haven't really changed size at all. Josh told me that I am not Basketball-sized yet, maybe soccerball-sized. I am sure I have some room to grow.A woman I work with gave me these great hand-me-downs. One is a small, portable swing and the other is a full-sized swing with all the great attachments. She also gave me a play mat with arches that the toys hang on. It also plays music and has all sorts of buttons and tabs to play with. I should have taken a picture of it, but I didn't. She also gave me all of her burb cloths and blankets and teethers. I feel so spoiled. Everything is used but is still really nice and the price tag is right in our budget! I love free!
