Lately I have been trying some new recipes. We made Cafe Rio sweet pork a few weeks ago. It was really good but didn't taste like Cafe Rio. This I blame on the fact that we couldn't find the right enchilada sauce so it had a slightly different flavor. But, I still ate it every day for a week. I also made giant ginger cookies to make it feel more like fall in this 100 plus degree weather. This plan didn't work, but the cookies were delicious! I tried my hand at vegetable baby food. I didn't have a food processor or blender and it all worked out perfectly anyway. George loves sweet potatoes and butternut squash. One day of making baby food and I have a month's supply. I don't love the new diaper changes...
Yesterday we had breakfast for dinner at my mom's house. There were 13 of us and there was enough food for 26 of us and it was gone by the end of the chaos. I'm getting hungry just thinking about it...
Speaking of being hungry, I still have 40 lbs to lose to be where I was when I found out I was pregnant. Granted I had just lost 20 lbs due to a strict diet and exercise plan which I could not keep up once pregnant and I cannot resume since I am breastfeeding. I secretly want to dry up so I can really start running in the morning without worrying about leakage and so on. But I know even just one meal of breast milk a day is better than none so I continue. I can run later in the day but George is sleeping through the night again and he eats from one side when he wakes up around six and the other is still full until he is hungry again later in the morning. This does not a comfortable jog allow. And I start work at six so, that's a hindrance until the times change and I start at seven, but then Glen goes to work at six-thirty and I don't want to take George with me. And the Cafe Rio pork and the giant ginger cookies are not helping either. I want to look like I do in my Facebook profile picture please. For now I will have to stick with watching what I eat and going to Zumba twice a week with my mom.
I'm sure some of you are wondering about Charlie since he is never mentioned anymore. He's still here and we still love him but our attention has shifted to George. But George doesn't get to sleep in our bed and Charlie does so what does that say? We love him lots and he has free reign of the house anytime we leave which is new for him. He used to hang out in the bathroom. He recently got star treatment at PetSmart with a haircut and shampoo since I was feeling guilty. So, as far as dogs go, he's still pretty spoiled.
We are planning a trip to Utah next month to visit family and hang out since Glen has a week off. Then we will be heading back there for Thanksgiving but only for like two days. Glen works the Wednesday before Thanksgiving which means in order to get there before Thanksgiving is over, we have to fly and rent a car. Gross. In other news, a trip to Disneyworld is in the works for next March!
And here is a video of George because no post would be complete without one!
