Weekend Dish is a place for me to get a little more personal! If you just come to Sunny Side Up for the food, feel free to skip this post but be sure to check back this week for new food photos and recipes!
This week really seemed to fly by! I’ve got just a few more weeks left of my summer semester so I’ve been trying to wrap up a lot of that work. I’m not typically a “work ahead” kind of student (more like a “better finish that assignment that’s due in an hour” kind of student), I am just so over this class that I actually have motivation to just get it over with! Between that and starting to really prep for the baby, time flies. I had intended to get two new recipes up this week, but I was fighting with myself over what photos to use for the second recipe and then the week was over. So that recipe will go up tomorrow (and you won’t want to miss it!!). Now for a little weekly recap –
Blog Recap –
Creamy Spinach Stuffed Pork Chops – A dream child straight from my pregnancy craving dreams. The filling was so scrumptious that I may or may not have just pulled it out of the left over pork and eaten it on its own with leftover rice.
Pregnancy Update –
Holy COW! I am almost 35 weeks pregnant! Do you know that today I bought a carton of heavy cream that doesn’t expire until AFTER my due date. Yeah. Unbelievable. I still remember looking down at my belly and wondering when I would start to show and when we would know what we were having and when we would feel baby kick. Now I have a second bedroom with a CRIB set up. And I spent part of my week washing and prepping cloth diapers. And I’m contemplating which of her adorable outfits I should as her “coming home from the hospital” outfit. All of that because…. I’m going to be a mom!! EEK!
In other news, I have chosen my new Chicago OB. I was pretty nervous about this, as I didn’t know as many people to give me recommendations. But the doctor seems nice and seems to be on the same page with me. This week I’m going to bring a copy of my birth plan (yeah, I’m one of those people) for him to look over. I tried to keep it short and sweet and totally respectful of medical team’s talents/knowledge. Hopefully he thinks it’s as awesome as I do. 🙂
My week through Instagram –
Are you at all familiar with this? Growing up my sister and I had the book and we also listened to the record and cassette tape. I think it’s originally from a made for TV special in the 70’s. It’s pretty awesome stuff. Takes me straight back to childhood. My wonderful mother sent this as a gift for baby girl. I can’t wait to play it for her! In case you’re wondering what it’s all about, just check this out.
Friday night I made some of the largest (and most delicious!) calzones ever. They were humongous and exactly what we were craving. And it totally hit me that I have yet to post a calzone recipe on the blog. One will be coming soon, because calzones are one of our faves!
Saturday we decided to check out this famous Chicago restaurant to see what the fuss was all about. Walking in and ordering we were totally overwhelmed, but once our order was ready we fell in love. YUM!
Obligatory weekly cat pic. Aren’t they the cutest? (This was a rare moment when they actually shared the cat tree, usually they take turns)
That’s a wrap! Thank you so much for stopping by and reading. Stop by tomorrow for a fresh new recipe!
