Todayâ€™s random food craving of the week isâ€¦ 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 â€“ big chunks of squash and zucchini.
But seriously â€“ all about those chips.
11 weeks is just around the corner, and Iâ€™m still feeling pretty good. Jen loaned us an at-home doppler to listen to the babyâ€™s heartbeat, and Iâ€™m trying not to use too much, but itâ€™s SO fun to hear the baby. And the heartbeat is still so fast â€“ around 180 beats a minute. I spend most days feeling thrilled and amazed that this is happening (the thought of another personâ€™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 wasnâ€™t in the mood to cook.
So I did a repeat of a meal from a couple of days agoâ€¦ 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.
