Week 38 and Freezing dinners

I’ve been slowly stocking our freezer with home cooked meals. Albeit meals filled with carbs. Traditional Lasagna, butternut squash lasagna, and Mac n cheese. I’ll focus on more healthier options next week. It’s easier to freeze composed meals anyway. Not sure if there’s a point to freeze chicken that we can quickly grill.

Week 38 and I’m still experiencing this annoying numbness in my left thigh. The slightest touch feels really annoying. I’ve tried to stretch it out but that doesn’t help.

The contractions slowed down on Friday and Saturday but they are starting up again today. It makes me think this baby is in here for the long haul. I guess we will find out more tomorrow. We spent a good bit of time walking around the mall yesterday and I did some yoga today. I’m hoping the increase in activity will speed up this baby. I still haven’t felt the baby drop.

We finally washed some baby outfits so I can incorporate it in my hospital bag and we have the car seat base installed in both cars.

I also went out and bought the last thing on my list that I thought I needed which is the breastpump. After doing some research I decided to stick with the Medela. Hope it’s worth it…

I have two days of work left before I start my vacation and then maternity leave.

I feel like I’m about to go on a long sabbatical. My only goal for the next 3 months is to work on maintaining the last few credits I need to maintain my PMP certification. Yay for online courses.

Tuna Steak with Soba Noodle Salad

I bought a bag of frozen tuna steaks from costco. I would have to say Mahi Mahi/Tuna is one of my favorite fish, namely because it’s meaty when cooked.  Salmon is just too darn fishy and I can only eat a small bit at a time.  Catfish is good, but only good fried.  Other than that, I haven’t experience much.  Fish can be pretty expensive, and you have to watch what you buy otherwise, it’s old and gross […]

Ceviche Tacos

I wanted to keep eating clean and fresh since I ate like crap yesterday. And since it was 100 degrees outside according to my car thermostat, I wanted something light. I decided on ceviche. I made ahi tuna and shrimp ceviche. It was great and even Brian liked it.

March Daring Baker’s Challenge

I was supposed to spend all of March studying for my PMP exam. However, since I had Good Friday off, I spent the morning whipping up this challenge. The cake itself was easy to make, but I am no cake decorator. In fact I am such a failure at it. I’m not sure what it is, lack of tools, lack of patience. Whatever it is, the cake turned out delicious. The consistency was dense yet light. It was almost like a dense angel food cake. Not sure how to describe it. It almost tasted like our white cake from our wedding. The icing itself was perfect. I’ve tried making my own icing before, but it just turned out lumpy regardless of how I followed the recipe. This was light and not too sweet […]

Salmon Piccata and Spinach stuffed Crepes

It was more like 2 meals in 1. Originally I was going to make salmon stuffed crepes, but I saw this on Monika’s food blog so I thought I would try it. It only took 45 minutes to make the entire meal so it wasn’t bad. I have to say it is quite different from my usual meals but I loved it. I even took it to work today, but a lunch outing at an Indian place was much more enticing.

Back to the gym

I worked out today. YAY. I actually brought my workout clothes to my cube so I can run downstairs to do some cardio. It’s a good feeling. Now if only I can keep this up for the next few weeks.

I’ve even started counting my calories today. Hopefully that will deter me from eating bad stuff. This morning I had a bagel. Then for lunch I had a frozen entree – Chicken Tikka Masala. I’m not sure what to do for dinner. My plan is to limit the amount of carbs at night. I bought some salmon yesterday, so we be having fish.

This weekend was quite uneventful. Brian hung the speakers I bought him for Christmas. They’re now nicely hung in the downstairs family room. If only he can do the same upstairs or maybe hang some of my other stuff. We also did laundry. I studied some. THANK GOD my PMP exam isn’t tomorrow. I would’ve died from test anxiety. Oh and we also went to Home Depot and got a bunch of grass fertilizer and weed killer. I had a dream the other night that our front lawn was full of weeds. Needless to say, there were a bunch of weeds. UGH. I blame our neighbors.

Anyway, that’s all I got.

Daring Baker’s Challenge

I am proud to be a member of the Daring Baker’s Challenge. This is my first challenge, and needless to say I was quite intimidated. Julia Child’s french bread. I remember growing up watching this her on the weekends and thinking how odd she was. I never really saw her as an icon for cooking shows. But her and Jacques Pepin were the best of the best. Anyway, here’s this month’s recipe. […]

The Best or Worst Fish

This is cited from the Weekly Spark articles I get. Some of it is surprising, although I don’t know too much about fish. I always thought shellfish was bad, I guess Oysters are actually good for you, although I don’t even know if oysters are shell fish. I’m also surprised that Bluefin Tuna is bad for you. Anyway, we need to eat more fish in our house […]
