Anna Maynard is here! Everything went very smoothly and she is proving to be a great baby! We are all super happy and big sister Cate seems to be adjusting very well…phew. It’s been a happy and wonderful week around here!
As I’m sure you’ve surmised, I’m still not cooking much…I am going to make some Chocolate Croissant Bread Pudding tonight. Mmmmmm. And I made omelettes for Nate and my mom yesterday (the picture below represents about all the cooking I’ve done in weeks). I figured it was the least I could do after all the help they’ve given me this week. But I am still not planning a real menu this week, or the next, and maybe the next?!?!
- Christmas Eve dinner…which at the Maynards means “Order Chinese”. We’ll be ordering from Pei Wei…I can’t wait! (Next year when I’m not busy having a baby, I promise I’ll talk more about Christmas cooking…and maybe even attempt a Swedish Christmas Eve dinner, which is my family’s tradition. Those posts next year are gonna be AWESOME. )
- Grazing and leftovers. I’m going to try to pull together some cinnamon rolls…using Rhodes frozen bread dough of course.
- My mom leaves Monday, and Nate’s parents don’t get here until Wednesday night. I think we might just go hungry this night.
THURSDAY – MONDAY:
- Hey Pat, what’s cookin? (Pat’s my mother-in-law)
