I can’t believe how fast time has gone by, I seem to remember that the first couple of weeks dragged endlessly during Round 1. Can’t say I’m upset about that though, we look forward to telling everyone about our surprise baby! 😀
This week, we found an awesome fruit-n-veggie-basketish array of foods that perfectly matched baby’s size, maybe to make up for our Week 11 overlook. 😉 Passionfruit, kiwi, tomato, and a lime or two thrown in for the nice coloring. I was picturing a shot with the passion fruit cut open so you could see the passionfruity-yellowish inside, because from the outside it doesn’t look too exciting. We also baked chocolate chip cookies this week, and one by chance turned out exactly 7.2 cm in diameter! Well-equipped, we took the yummsies up to the mountains, thinking to use the snow as a picturesque setting for several shots.
However, after snowshoeing for a couple of miles (why is it that now when I’m pregnant we’re doing all this sportsy stuff all of a sudden?! Normally, we’re lazy bums who may cycle 2 km if and only if there is an ice cream parlor waiting at the destination 😀 ), a) the sun was going down, b) we were tired, and c), lying down in cold snow is, well, a cold affair. So, we picked one shot. Sadly, the passionfruit didn’t get chosen, and the chocolate chip cookies were gone as they were used to coax DD along (think: donkey+carrot on stick) but tomatos are yummy too! 😉
By the way, the cookies we baked were after a recipe from Alice Currah at savorysweetlife.com and hands down, they have got to be the most awesome chocolate chip cookies EVER. I experimented a bit, and when we left some dough in the fridge for a while, those cookies somehow turned extra-chewy-on-the-inside but crispy-on-the edges. LOVE them!
Speaking of cookies, I don’t really have cravings per se (except for sushi, of course 😉 ), but the other day I read a book and came across the words “carrot-colored hair”. Had. To. Have. Carrot. Cake. As in, immediately. Now. Pronto subito. Luckily, our cafeteria does cakes, and there was a piece of carrot cake with my name on it. 😉 Same thing has happened with watching a movie, guy brings pepperoni pizza over. Must. Have. Pepperoni. Pizza. As in now. As in, I don’t care if I’m not really hungry and its already midnight. So far, my husband has been spared the late-night grocery trips because the next scene was the pizza looking all moldy. 😉 Worked well enough!
Please ignore any wool-silk longjohns you may see peeking out. At least they were color-coordinated with the tomato, right? 😉
