pregnant and barefoot in the kitchen
yes, i'm still getting bigger. i've officially started the uncomfortable phase, even though i still have 3 1/2 more months to go before the little champ arrives. sitting up starts to hurt by the end of the day and i find myself lying down to read every night. don't be offended by my derogatory comment about being barefoot and pregnant--i don't even get that joke--but it's true--i am barefoot and obviously pregnant. and that is the kitchen i'm in. i'm cooking moosewood's yummy potato soup recipe. it's one of the simplest potato soups i've made, but it's the best. just celery, onions, potatoes, milk, marjoram, and dill. it's great on rainy days like we've been having. i also took some advice from a recent posie gets cozy post and made the sour cream apple pie. i made mine a bit too runny so the apples didn't cook that well, but it's still good. and aren't those vintage embroidered hand towels lovely? you can thank my mother-in-law for those beauties.
