I miss cooking. I miss eating things other than grilled cheese or tuna fish sandwiches. But mostly, I miss blogging.
I don’t like this whole “taking it easy” thing. It doesn’t suit me. If only my doctor could see what I’ve really been up to! Pretty sure he’d send me straight to my room and ground me (again).
Last weekend was my baby shower. It was all kinds of wonderful (imagine a room full of friends, family, and the cutest little baby clothes imaginable). But if you think that I just sat around and let things happen, you are sorely mistaken. My genius husband and I decided to throw a bbq/housewarming/friends and family get together immediately after the shower. I mean seriously, what were we thinking?!
Mistake #1: Hosting a party at 34 weeks pregnant.
Mistake #2: Insisting that 90% of the food be made from scratch.
Mistake #3: Insisting that 75% of the homemade food be made by me when I’m not supposed to cook or stand or do anything other then lie around.
Shall I go on?
The good news is that I still haven’t gone into labor.. YAY! Also, it was beyond wonderful to have so many of our close friends together again. The bad news is that the whole thing was a chaotic mess (at least according to John and I), and we were unbelievably stressed and tired by the end of the weekend. (Not to mention, we were less than pleased with how a lot of the food came out… and for someone like me, that’s devastating.)
I can’t change the past, but I can vow to be more careful in the future. When this baby comes, I promise to let as many people bring us food as possible. I will sit back, relax, and enjoy my time with John and our little one. No cooking. No cleaning. And those are my words, not the doctors.
Having said that, I’ve been dying to share this recipe for a few weeks now! John and I made this together before the craziness of last weekend went down. This is good. I mean, really, really good.
We’re big fans of Greek food, in general. We also happen to adore cheese, butter, cream, and pasta. What happens when you combine the two? Magic, my friends. Magic.
