Spring is herrrre

Last Nights Dinner:
Yesterday was one of those nights where I was just SO HUNGRY I couldn't even think! I actually sat on the kitchen floor wondering what in the world I was going to make for dinner.  I roasted some broccoli and started cooking frozen green beans, then proceeded to whine to my husband that I was just too hungry to cook. Grrr, I hate feeling like that, but with being pregnant and all, it happens.  Luckily, the hubster came to my rescue (again).  He knows, understands, (and loves!!) my guilty pleasure for Pillsbury Crescent Rolls, so he grabbed the emergency container and began to cook (while I was still wandering around the kitchen clearly troubled).

First he unrolled the dough into 4 pieces, and dabbed some Balsamic Vinegar on each one.  Then he spread some chopped garlic, chopped spinach and chopped tomato on each piece of dough. He then added a tiny bit of mozz cheese on each one and rolled 'em up.

Popped them in the oven that was preheated to 400 (thanks to my quick-thinking roasted broccoli!) and baked for about 10 minutes.

Ah-maz-ing! Everything tastes better with Crescent Rolls.  Now if I could come up with some all-natural calorie-free version life would be perfect.

Full-on shot of dinner (I ate all the broccoli right away because I was starving). 

Under all that chopped Spinach are some (cooked, not dippy) eggs and Tabasco Sauce.

Next up: This Mornings Photo Shoot, because what else is there to do at 6:30 am??

Isn't she beauuutiful?!?!

Today I am 26 weeks pregnant.  (Actually, as of yesterday.) However, I'm maintaining my 30 lb weight gain, which is making me a happy camper.  14 more weeks to go... third trimester begins next week!!! Baby boy was up ALL night kicking me and punching me.  Seriously, I couldn't sleep because there was movement coming from both sides of my belly.  Such a great feeling but its just weird how you cant turn it on and off, you know?

One last thought before I sit down to eat lunch - WHERE IS ALL THIS SNOW COMING FROM?? Wasn't it just 60 on Friday? This is absurd!
cold and snowy in NY...brrr


  1. What an awesome husband! I wish mine would come home and come up with something like that. That looks delicious!

    Gotta say though, you look huge for 26 weeks, not in a fat way. :-) You sure there is only one in there??

    I'm in MN and we got more snow coming this week too. Grr.
