With a new baby comes many generous visitors who bring gifts of toys, clothes, and food! At this point, I am enjoying the gifts of food the most, because I have 0% inclination to cook and -20% inclination to wash any dishes.
One of the most interesting dishes I received was an entree called “Gigantes”. I had never heard of it before. A little googling taught me that it’s a Greek Lima Bean dish. I don’t even remember the last time I had lima beans, and I was curious about their nutritional content. As I suspected, they are pretty healthy for you! Except if consumed raw, in which case they are toxic (?!!?).
I was under direct orders to serve this dish with feta cheese and crusty bread. Thankfully, I am a huge fan of both feta cheese and crusty bread, especially when given to me for free! This was last night’s dinner:
Speaking of feta, check out this giant (700 grams!) tub of feta that Husband bought today. I have used my son’s head for size comparison purposes. I am a great mother!
Before you go and call Child Services, please note that I know you are not supposed to leave a baby with loose blankets and pillows, especially when they are sleeping on their side, but he is sleeping right beside me and I am checking his breathing approximately once every 25 seconds.
We had a rough night last night — I am blaming my choice of caffeinated coffee at 8 pm! — so I am enjoying this little break. A sleeping baby means I get to have one of these for lunch!
My goals for the rest of the day include:
– Practice with my Moby wrap (persnickety things, but once mastered are amazing!)
– Write out a list of Christmas card recipients
– Help with making dinner
I only have Husband for one more day until he has to go back to work. I am not looking forward to that at all. You mean I am going to have to get my own glass of water and do the laundry myself? Ugh.
