12/24/11: Christmas Eve Breakfast-Pizza & Egg Frittata

Haven't posted in 2 weeks since the 34 week belly pic post. Certainly have been busy with lots of things. AND tired mostly. We haven't cooked that much...well, I should say I haven't cooked much. Andy has kept me fed most nights by whipping something together that is tasty and quick. We had our Muskie Christmas last weekend (post to follow today or tomorrow) and I spent that entire week making presents. And this week I started a prenatal aqua aerobics class, which is great, but makes me even more tired than I already am.

Last night we went for a quick and easy meal...had my parents over for dinner and ordered some pizza's from the local Logli's. They were very good and just what was needed! Ice cream was on the menu for desert. Doesn't sound like our usual cooking huh? Oh well. Like I said it was tasty and filled us up. We had lots of leftovers so this morning Andy made a pizza & egg frittata. It was delicious and oh so easy. All you do is mix up your eggs, chop up your pizza leftovers, throw them in the skillet and bake until done. Add a little cilantro, greek yo, and sriracha and you're set.

Merry Christmas Eve! Off to eat some splendid food at my Mother-in-Law's! She always serves up a great Christmas Eve feast.

Roller Derby Shower!

This is me, Sinful Sally, on skates just over a year ago. My last bout, before hanging up my skates for retirement, was in August 2010.

This is me now...

Today was the roller derby shower, hosted by my derby chicks that I used to spend 2-4 nights a week and numerous weekends every month.  I miss seeing them so often. And after skating a bout last night and staying out late to party, they made the baby shower a day to remember. It was, over the top, fantastic and a blast.

We played lots of games:

The baby picture game...bring your baby picture and try to pick out who is who. The draw what the baby will look like...using a paper plate on top of your head. The diaper game...split into teams of three, take one roll of TP, create a diaper as fast as you can with the WHOLE roll.

The name that tune (title and artist) with 17 songs which have the name Baby or Babe in the title. 

Turbo Trixie made a boat load of phenomenal food (I should have taken pictures: artichoke dip, homemade pretzels, mea…

Going Gluten Free-Dairy Free

Over the past several weeks I've changed my diet drastically. The wee one is a gassy little man and as I have adjusted my diet, I've noticed things have changed for the better. There is a lot of information floating around about eliminating certain foods from your diet which can irritate babies digestive systems. The major players that can affect infants are dairy, wheat, soy, eggs, beans, broccoli, spinach, peanuts, and citrus fruits, among a few others. I have cut all of these out of my diet except for eggs. This means no cheese, greek yogurt and other good things that I love to eat....however I've noticed that with cutting these things out, not only is Augie's digestive system is mine. It's a win win. Of course I still miss eating a few of these things (specifically cheese, greek yo and peanut butter!), but I feel pretty good with the whole process. 
So, with undertaking this adventure we have embarked on some new dishes in the kitchen. We are still g…

Compost Tumbler & Rain Barrel

They are done (minus still needing to put the overflow nozzle on the rain barrel). The composter is already loaded with yard and kitchen scraps. We mounted the barrel on it's side with castor wheels underneath so we can roll it and mix up the good stuff. And we are awaiting a little rain to try out the rain barrel officially. A had to try out the rain barrel (of course) and sprayed the roof with water. It went where it was supposed to go, so we should be all good next time it rains.
