But then I got a text from my very pregnant sister late Wednesday night -- there is a possibility she's going to be induced a couple weeks early. As in, this weekend.
So instead of lounging around at home in my sweats for the first weekend in over a month, Adam and I spent today chasing this kid around.
And I found myself looking at this after a nice trip to the grocery store (and this was probably less than half the haul).
We spent some time making a couple batches of this lasagna,
2 batches of skinny chimis (don't worry, I won't hold out on you), and some marinara sauce.
I got to try out my brand spankin' new immersion blender for the first time. So I was happy. And it is awesome -- totally beats trying to transfer hot liquid to a blender.
But it is all worth it. I mean, I got Michael to actually eat half of a skinny chimi tonight. Which is pretty good for a 2 1/2 year old. Oh. Wait, there's another reason it's worth it.
That's right, it's Ethan James birthday today! Couldn't ask for a better reason to give up a weekend at home!
Must crawl into bed now. Lots more cooking to do tomorrow!
