**Taking a semi-break from food talk today. If you’re here for the recipes only, please stop back on Wednesday!**

I am 17 weeks pregnant! According to, Pumpkin is the size of an onion.

17 weeks pregnant

The nausea is mostly gone, and I've been able to eat 3 meals — and several snacks — a day. I still get tired easily. I haven't felt the baby move yet. I'm really looking forward to that! I was 18 weeks along with Liam when I felt the first kick.

So, what have we been up to this past week?

Well, working. And this past Saturday, we stopped by one of the largest animal adoption festivals in the country. A group called Citizens for a No-Kill Philadelphia has organized the event for the past 3 or 4 years. This year, nearly 30 organizations and their adoptable animals were there. We saw dogs, kitties, and even baby pigs.


Liam ran around so much that day that he wiped himself out, and slept from 7 p.m. until 9:45 a.m. the next day. That was AWESOME.

The next day, we had a late breakfast at a local diner, visited a farmer's market, and got fresh, local tomatoes, and finished up our food shopping at a grocery store. I even made a meal-plan!

One meal that we really enjoyed that I won't have the chance to blog about (since I didn't snap a picture) were Burgers with Beer-Glazed Onions and Brie from Confections of a Foodie Bride. I've been salivating over them since she posted them. Dave actually did the cooking, as he has been for the past couple of months. I love that he enjoys cooking (and eating) as much as I do.

I'll have a couple of new recipes to post this week, including a What's Cooking Recipe Swap!
