I did get up to one new recipe lately, from Capril's Soups and Sandwiches. I got this book as a gift at Christmas 2011, after I'd discovered soup. That is, I discovered that making soup was not intimidating, as I'd previously thought, but was easy, satisfying and a very handy skill to have in the winter. Now I love making soup. I've also discovered that I can make soups out of vegetables that Derek would not eat in any other format, but chows them down as soup.
I made the spicy peanut soup and it was very rich, filling and tasty. I think prawns or chicken would have made a nice addition, but first time 'round I stuck to the recipe and made a veggie version.
I've been facing some challenges with buying and acquiring baby gear - there is so much out there, that I just get overwhelmed by the task. This week I broke through the barrier & we are now proud owners of a carseat (so Rufus can come home from the hospital), an iBaby monitor and a BOB stroller. We've also been given some great hand-me down gear from my old friend RaeLeigh and a few friends in Squamish. Any day now, we expect a lovely package of baby clothes from aunty Bronwyn, who did some shopping in Portland for us. We are ready to roll in style!
|Belly Shot of the week: 34 weeks. I have just discovered that if I poke Rufus, he/she pokes back. It's seriously entertaining!!|
