Today’s random food craving of the week is… BBQ chips. Cannot get enough. Best chip ever.
Balancing it out with vegetables, of course.
A spinach salad with balsamic, cucumbers, and tomatoes, and black-eyed pea vegetable soup. The soup was from a little store called Berrybrook Farms and was positively fabulous – big chunks of squash and zucchini.
But seriously – all about those chips.
11 weeks is just around the corner, and I’m still feeling pretty good. Jen loaned us an at-home doppler to listen to the baby’s heartbeat, and I’m trying not to use too much, but it’s SO fun to hear the baby. And the heartbeat is still so fast – around 180 beats a minute. I spend most days feeling thrilled and amazed that this is happening (the thought of another person’s heartbeat inside my body is mind-blowing), but I was really tired this afternoon. By the time we got home from the clinic, I wasn’t in the mood to cook.
So I did a repeat of a meal from a couple of days ago… a hamburger bun with cranberry goat cheese and fruit. It was fast and easy. I was too tired to eat a big meal anyway.
And a handful of almonds with two big glasses of orange juice. Pretty simple stuff.
