A Baby, A House, A Lonely Kitchen

I don’t know if anyone has noticed, or if it’s just my own guilt speaking, but things have been a little slow around here lately. That’s because being a wife and mom take precedence over cooking and blogging. And right now, those first two areas are filling up most of my time.

So, maybe my title gives it away, but let me fill you in on the scoop.

  1. Just when we made the final decision that we were done at four, baby #5 came on the scene. On or around October 19th, I have a feeling life will get a little crazy in our house. But I can’t wait!
  2. After just 24 more dinners cooked in our tiny kitchen, we are moving into a new house with plenty of room for us all. (And loads of natural light in my kitchen. I can’t wait!!)

Although I breezed through my first trimester, I’ve been feeling a little less than uninspired in the kitchen lately. On top of that, packing and planning are now at the top of each day’s must-do list. I’m anxiously awaiting getting settled and setting up shop in my new kitchen.

Until then, we all still have to eat, so hopefully I’ll still have plenty to write about. Although if you have a recipe you’d like to share here, I’d love a few guest posts! (Just email me for details if you’re interested.)
