Hello there everyone who is no longer reading this blog because it has been 11 months since my last posting. But, I have a good excuse, I swear!! Do you remember that fruity looking drink I had at the 1st food blogger happy hour? Well, it was just that. Grapefruit juice! No alcohol! I was just a few weeks pregnant!
Since then, I survived morning sickness, evening sickness, little to no interest in food (and thus no desire to cook, eat out, or write about food), and a modified protein-heavy-carb-light diet due to gestational diabetes - oh, and the DELIVERY of course! But, it was all worth it because 9 months later, my husband and I were rewarded with the birth of a beautiful daughter, Samantha, who has brought us so much joy and happiness over her now 3 1/2 months of life.
I'm getting back into food - slowly - although I have hard time finding time to cook. I'm getting back into the food scene - again slowly - as I start to discover all of the new restaurants and food trucks (so many food trucks!) that have opened since my sudden disappearance from said food scene.
Without rushing, of course, my husband and I delight in the daydreams of sharing our favorite foods with Samantha. A good family friend bought us the Beaba BabyCook Food Maker, and I already know that I am going to have so much fun with it. For now, though, its all breastmilk and formula and a sickly sweet smelling grape flavored vitamin drop. So many culinary adventures await...
