The latter part of this pregnancy is kicking my butt. While I feel like I’ve been lucky (in terms of pregnancy symptoms, that is) in the first and second trimesters, the third is more challenging than I anticipated. So though my 31-week belly really isn’t big enough to complain about (see above) and my weight gain is itty bitty, my body constantly aches and I feel like I have a permanent hot flashes. I’m burning up ALL THE TIME.
But alas, since we got an AC window unit in our house I’ve been slowly getting back into cooking again. I probably only cook real meals four times a week, but it’s better than nothing, right? Here’s what we’ve been cooking lately:
Cheeseburger Pizza (We made this light on the meat/cheese, and heavy on the veggies. Might be better if we had added more meat. 7/10 if you’ve got a decent, flavorful pizza crust.)
Vegetarian Lettuce Wraps (10/10. These were amazing and had so much flavor. If you didn’t already know, you would never guess it was tofu. Avocado is a MUST. Surprisingly filling, so with the three of us we had plenty of leftovers for the next day. Leftovers microwave great!)
Baked Onion Rings (9/10…one point taken off for the amount of work these are to make. We cut the recipe in half and gobbled down the entire plate. Would definitely make again!)
Sour Cream Coffee Cake / Funfetti cupcakes (coffee cake homemade, funfetti obviously boxed)
