I want to start off by saying a big ole Congratulations to Jenn, the host of WIAW, for getting knocked up!
Everyone around me seems to be getting pregnant. It’s awesome and all, but…
I really hope it’s not contagious.
Half an apple. A lot of pb. A vanilla whey protein shake.
PRs are my favorite.
This is my new typical breakfast.
Yup, I’m still on the scrambled eggs and cooked veg breakfast.
Side note — these are the smallest, cutest clementines I’ve ever seen. I finally feel like I’m getting “cuties,” not like those small-ish oranges I’ve been calling “cuties” all these years.
Look! I did something “healthy living blogger”-like and made my lunch the night before while I was making breakfast. Let’s ignore the fact that I ate it at home.
Having it ready was still mighty handy.
Let’s play the game where you don’t scold me for buying a giant bag of Twizzlers because it was $1 and I won’t pretend I only ate one serving.
This meal knocked my socks off! That’s real talk, eaters. Real talk.
First, I made the pork tamales over the weekend as part of my thesis. And while they were good on the day I made them, they were so much better a few days later when the exhaustion of making them had worn off.
Second, this soup was pure magic. I wanted to make some sort of lazy tortilla soup so I mixed a can of fire roasted diced tomatoes and then leftover “broth” from the tamale meat (which was the pork cooking water pureed with cooked garlic and cooked onion). I added a little bit of spice and pureed the whole deal again.
And by the grace of the Mexican food gods (who I imagine have heads made out of grilled cheese sandwiches) it ab-so-freaking-lutely rocked!
Your turn, eaters:
What was the last winging-it meal that turned out magical for you?
What’s your favorite candy?
