Yay! My Facebook friends are already aware, but it’s time to let my readership know that Baby Girl has arrived! The following is the story of labor, delivery, and the first few days at home with our little one.
There are two people that I doubted, who turned out to be completely right–my mom, and my friend Amber.
Today’s entry will be a summary of the challenge so far. Continue reading
The following is a stream of consciousness about the upcoming arrival of our Baby Girl, and the possibility that it might just be time to start working from home until she gets here. See the rest of the content after the jump!

Today’s CSA included Mario turnips! Hahaha! What better to do than to reenact some classic veggie-throwing Mario goodness?
Also included were:
– String Beans
– Multi Grain Bread
We’re heading to Costco right now to pick up some protein to go with all this veggie goodness. We’re going to pick up some frozen fruit, too, and start having smoothies in the morning.
I’m thinking of sending messages to my sister and her hubby to get a good recipe for borscht, and I might get a little daring and put cheese over the broccoli…
If you have ideas on how to eat these great veggies, leave your thoughts in the comments below!
I’m starting to wonder if maaaybe the CSA wasn’t the best idea I’ve ever had. I guess when I pictured farm fresh vegetables every week, I had hoped for vegetables that I usually actually eat and enjoy. Bell peppers, carrots, potatoes, even parsnips, cucumber, and celery would be cool! But what have I been getting? Turnips. Kohlrabi. Napa cabbage. I’m all for adventure, but when I get stuck on how to use an item, it gets abused and discarded. I really hate wasting the food :(
Tonight’s CSA box includes:
– Brats from Von Hansen
– String Beans
– (unidentified root vegetables)
– (Unidentified leafy green)
– Purple Kohlrabi
We still have from the LAST CSA:
– Napa cabbage
Plus, from our standard groceries we have bell peppers, cucumber, carrots, and celery.
This is decidedly a first world problem. I’m not complaining by any means–I’m thankful for the abundance–but I’m also worried about how to best make use of it.
Last night me and Jeff blanched 3/4 of the broccoli, and 3/4 of the string beans, and froze them. We’re giving the beets, some broccoli, and some peas to my parents. I’m hoping my sister wants one of the kohkrabi…
The CSA is going to last at least another month, if not longer, so I’m going to use this as an opportunity to expand my veggie horizons and eat a lot more veggies… Even if I *do* have to Google them first :-P
I think dinner tonight will be the brats and a cole slaw of kohlrabi, Napa cabbage, and carrots. I can bring it to my brother’s house to share tomorrow afternoon for lunch ^_^
Chef salad for dinner!
I’ll make another pie!
Broccoli cheddar soup!
Uh… Other stuff!!
