Third Trimester Eats: Home Cooking


I've been building up a phone full of photos to share with you guys, and I finally sat down to do it.  I'll probably do another pregnancy update next week, but things are going well.  I've been doing quite a bit of cooking, but I've also been repeating the same things over and over.


We're still making banh mi's a lot.  They're tasty and easy.  What else could you ask for?  It's really the perfect summer food.


A few weeks ago, I had a total pregnancy melt down around dinner.  I couldn't figure out what I wanted, and we didn't have much food in the house.  So, I busted out some frozen hash browns, mixed it with cheese, flour, jalapeno, and an egg, and fried up these yummy potato pancakes.  Now we've been repeating the recipe.


Peanut butter and jelly sandwiches have been my JAM so to speak. hehe.  I make them for work lunches a lot.



Speaking of work lunches, I've been making lots of salads + sandwich combos.  There have been many tofu sandwiches with watermelon salad, and lately I've been really loving pesto/tomato/mozzarella with a quinoa salad.



So great!  I love farmer's market tomatoes in the summer.  They're pretty much the best thing ever.



We've been making a ton of co-meal flatbread pizzas lately.  They're so quick and easy.  I've been repeating the caprese salad toppings on these, too.  Can't stop won't stop.



I've been baking quite a bit still, although I don't turn the oven on as much lately.  I'm still making those amazing chocolate chip cookies, and lately I've been throwing some blueberry muffins into the mix.



Eggs and toast have also been a big hit with my baby belly.  It always seems to satisfy me.


We went to my parents' for 4th of July, and my mom had amazing spreads every day of our trip.  We had a big cookout where she made beast burgers, veggie dogs, potato green bean salad, and my favorite corn casserole from when I was a kid.  It was so yummy.



Josh made these amazing tacos with Beyond Meat crumbles, and I made a jicama mango salad to go with it.  I love taco night.


... and of course, I've been drinking a ton of water!  I even ordered a second Nalgene so I could have one chilling in the fridge at all times.  Cold water for the win!

What have you been eating lately?

  3. Rolex (ROELX) in 2014 in Basel, Switzerland, the rolex replica international exhibition, the introduction of a new series of Rolex cut series, became the hottest watch. Under normal circumstances, in breitling replica order to show the dignity of the identity and modesty of the ceremony, the men will be put on formal occasions to attend a formal dress, but also with a formal watch, appears to be more polite. Rolex watches have long always gives people a kind of replica watches heavy feeling of strength, and most are steel watch, so when wearing a dress of many fans will not choose Rolex, the reason is not elegant decent, wild. But the rolex replica watches new Rolex Cellini series make up for this defect, presented in front of us is a pure and yet elegant dress watch.
