Let's face it. I'm nearly as big as a house and twice as hot as Hades. When I cook, my belly is so near the flame compared to the rest of my body, the baby has hot flashes. I worry about burning a hole in my shirt right over my belly button - or what USED to be my belly button.
What I'm trying to say is... there hasn't been a true "Yummy Monday" in this house for a while now. I have a few recipes to share still, even though the pictures that go along with them are far from ideal. But I haven't gotten up the energy to edit them all.
(Actually, I'm wondering where my energy is at all lately, what with the napping AT LEAST once a day thing... apparently "nesting" is a symptom that lessens with each pregnancy, until you hit number three and it goes away completely. No one warned me about that...)
And so. For Yummy Monday today, I provide you with a list. A list of reasons why I have a love/hate relationship with food right now:
Things That Give Me Heartburn by: Kimberly Mueller, 38.5 weeks preggy
Pizza - of any kind
Anything remotely resembling something that could be construed as even slightly spicy
Don't even get me started on oranges
Maybe we should just say "all fruit"
Avocados - the most bland veggie on the planet
Any kind of pasta with any kind of pasta sauce
Potatoes - unless I don't put anything on them, not even butter, and even then it's iffy
Mint gum - which is really unfortunate as this helps me not throw up
Running - HAHAHAHA!!!! Oh my gosh, I'm so funny. As if that's happening.
Eating too much
I'm on a strict 300 mg of Zantac a day regimen.
Also food related, I posted this on instagram today with the caption:
"You know the old adage "never go to the grocery store when you're hungry" ?? This can be directly translated to: "never go to the grocery store when you're pregnant." Because THIS is what happens:
(But in my defense, I've only gained 10 pounds. 10 POUNDS. So I'm still ok.)
Come on, baby! Any day now!!
