First, I want to apologize to my blog readers. I have been SO inconsistent lately and I feel terrible! I never even posted my Ricotta Cheese recipe for my first theme week! I really wanted to start something great with this blog in the new year, but one thing I didn't factor in was pregnancy.
Yep, you heard that right! I'm pregnant! I was going to keep it a secret for a while on my blog (friends and family already know), but I just need to share my excuse with you as to why the lack-age of post-age lately.
You see, with fatigue, nausea, morning sickness, cravings, food aversions, and even a bout of mastitis. . . I'm having a very hard time in the kitchen lately.
I think out of all of last week, I made ONE meal for my family. Maybe two. I don't know if dried pasta and sauce from a can with some iceberg lettuce for a salad really counts.
I'm going to have to skip the theme week that is supposed to start tomorrow. I just can't do it. I'd already cooked two of the planned recipes for "Sit-Down Restaurant Copy-Cat Recipes" week, so I may still post them on days that I actually feel well. It really all depends on this little baby swimmin' around.
Valentine's Theme week is still a go, and should be really tasty and yummy, so stick around for that. Hopefully I can find a time for this next theme week I am skipping.
If you need some things to tide you over on these cold, wintery days, here are some of my fave recipes that'll warm you right up. :D
Quick and easy, but oh-so comforting.
