Things Have Been Slow Around Here Lately...

Here's why:

Look! It's waving its bony little hand at you.

Between the fatigue, the morning (and afternoon, and evening, and middle of the night) sickness, and the intense food aversions, I haven't been up to anything special in the kitchen. Plain and starchy is where it's at. Can a person survive (and grow tiny human bones?) on rice cakes, bananas, and Peanut Butter Panda Puffs? Apparently.

Now that those lousy symptoms are mostly gone, I'm hoping to get back into the swing of things as my CSA and farmers' market come back to life. I'll probably be taking some time off at the end of 2010, but until then, it's time to get some veggies in this kiddo!

  1. You're pregnant!? Congratulations!!!! I hope I didn't miss this before in an earlier post... Those sonogram pictures are so sweet. What a lucky little baby to have you for a mommy. Much support Mary, hope your symptoms are gone for good and you can really enjoy being pregnant. I wish I could do it again myself.

  11. Mazel tov, Mary! The food aversions do pass. I ate nothing but blueberry Pop-tarts and saltines for the first 3 months, and Max came out just fine.

    Parenthood is the most joyous ride you can take. Your child will do amazing things, and you will never laugh so hard in all your life. :)

  24. A huge congratulations to you guys !! Lots of nutritional yeast helps for a healthy happy vegan pregnancy, and if you're having any heartburn, fresh cilantro usually eliminates that. Many congrats once again !
