my life now

Thanks, Thamesarino, for asking how things are!  I have often thought I need to get back to posting, especially as fall rolls in and my desire to cook takes over.

Life has been busy!  As you all know, we found out we are having a baby next month.  The other news is that we adopted a beautiful baby boy in June, so days have been full as we adjust to having a newborn in the house again.  We are going to be old pros come November!  He is a wonderful, easy baby and we feel truly blessed.  And before too long I am going to be back to pureeing baby food and filling my ice cube trays, so stayed tuned for such excitement.

On the topic of being a healthy mama (though my pregnancy instincts have led me to eat more chocolate and butter than I can really justify), I pulled out my Sneaky Chef cookbook yesterday, as my toddler as developed a very specific palate that needs some expansion.  Stay tuned for that, too!

In the mean time, want to try something that just exudes fall and is absolutely delicious?  It's decadent, I warn you, but since the main ingredient is a vegetable, don't feel bad about the butter - it is soooooo worth it.  Leave it to The Pioneer Woman to do squash right:  Butternut Squash Puree.

I hope you all are staying well this fall season - and I promise to whip up something tasty soon!

yay! I am glad that you are doing well! Thanks for the shout out.. that was unexpected! : )
I understand the desire to use more butter in your cooking now! I'm trying desperately to not let my hormones get the better of me on an almost daily basis... but not suceeding very well!
Wow, I think you are amazing taking on a newborn while being pregnant! I'm glad that you are doing so well, and it's good to hear from you! Take care of yourself and those babies!! : )

Good to see you blogging again, even if only for a drive-by post. Hope all goes well with your new additions. Newborns 'round here at the LB house... well, I'd not handle that greatly, but you're probably much stronger than I am, so you'll do fine. Anyway, take care :)

I have an interior design site and I am interested in purchasing a link on your website. Your site looks great and I would love to be part of your blogroll. Or, if you prefer we could exchange links.

If this is possible, could you let me know how much you would charge for a basic text link. My site is located at http://www.genuinestyle.net.

Thank you for your time, I look forward to hearing back from you.
