operation: look, no hands!

ok, so can i just be honest for a second here? long before i had visions of a little worrell running around the place, i had always envisioned possessing the magical ability pregnant woman have to balance all sorts of objects on their bellies. i mean, seriously, what could be more awesome than eating a bowl of cereal with no hands!? nothing, i say, nothing! its got to be the highlight!

as you can see, i am far from this vision becoming a reality (the necessary hand! the treacherous tilt!). i have about 8 weeks left to get this belly up to a bowl-balancing standard. i can, i must!

making & baking

homemade french bread,
(this is now a regular in the worrell household) 
SO yummy, dipped in some oil and vinegar, 
with a steak and baby leaf salad.

chocolate oatmeal cookies.
haha, had a craving so i made it up as i went along. 
eh, they were ok.

butternut squash soup. 
how could i just walk past a butternut squash for only 69 cents, 
without making a nice dinner out of it?

molasses spice cookies.
so what, i made them red and green and well after christmas, 
they were still amazing. 

ps. i dont spend hours perusing the internet to find the healthiest, organic-est, hip-est, trendiest recipes just to impress everyone reading. i can guarantee that *most* of the things i bake have loads of butter and sugar, and everything else that isn't good for you, but taste too good to leave out. in fact, my husband thinks i should create a side blog filled with all my baked goods called "why my husband is fat." he thinks it would be a success. unfortunately, between this baby growing and the stand mixer clay got me for christmas, it would also be why i would be fat. so maybe later.
