I've gotten back into the culinary swing of things the past couple of days, having felt compelled to fulfill my wifely duties as well as use up some of the almost-expired foods we had sitting in our fridge.

Sunday night was Oven Fried Chicken with Corn on the Cob.
Monday night was Vegetarian Angel Hair Pasta with Spinach Stuffed Portobello Mushrooms.

Today Tim cooked dinner (he's way better than me both in skill and creativity) and made Shredded Pork Tacos, which were delicious.

I have a hankering to bake some cookies, and settled on a simple recipe but alas the ONE ingredient I'm missing is cooking oil. I'm guessing olive oil will be too heavy?
Anyhoo, the recipe I settled on was Chocolate Crinkle Cookies. And on that note, I can't wait till I'm able to start exercising again next week! Tim finally got the missing parts for the elliptical and I purchased a workout mat today for all those sit-ups I'm going to have to do in order to try and get some semblance of a pre-pregnancy stomach back. People say its next to impossible, but I'm up for the challenge. In the meantime, I'll be eating cookies.

Isn't it a shame that junk food is bad for you? Wouldn't life be so much sweeter (literally) if our comfort foods were good for us? But then, maybe its all a mental thing where if the junk food was considered healthy, we'd be sneaking carrot sticks and handfuls of flax seed throughout the day. Doubtful.

Ok, that's all for now.


  1. you won't have any problem gettin gyour pre pregnancy body back Lauren! you barely looked prego to begin with LOL and the stomach thing just depends on how your muscles where damaged durning pregnancy some peoples go right back others are pulled apart and only surgery pulls them back the right way to where they go flat again but Jack wasn't that big so that is a good sign :) unlike my 9.9 pounder hehehe or my friends 11pounder
