Yesterday my son turned three months old. I cannot believe it was only three months ago when I was sitting in the doctor’s office, several days overdue, and was told that my fluid was low and the baby had to come out TODAY. I went home, told my husband, arranged for child care, and went back to the hospital. I waited for a long time to get induced, waited some more, and finally, with a relatively short labor and delivery, our son was born on July 27th at 2:12am.
It has been three long months trying to find a new rhythm for our family. The new schedule with the baby, daddy’s return to work, adjustment for our girls and the challenges with the new homeschooling year has left me with my head spinning at times. Basically, we have been on survival mode for the last three months. Lately, however, I finally feel settled into our new season. With that, my desire to cook has come back. Just the other day at the dinner, my husband asked me, “Are you happy?” I answered, “I think so. Why?” He said, “Because the food tastes good.” I laughed because it is so true. When I am emotionally drained or disturbed, my food does not taste very good. I am sure my family is happy we are back to having home cooked meals.
Here is what I have made for this week:
Stuffed Salmon with greenbeans & roasted beets and sweet potatoes.
Cauliflower and red lentil curry with basmati rice
French lentil and vegetable soup
Pork chop with greenbeans, potato & carrots au gratin, and salad
And for tonight, I will make breaded white fish with cauliflower Mac & Cheese and salad.
