I feel like this is a big step but most people wouldn't understand at this point - except many of you!

I had DH make the meat but I made potato salad and corn with my CSA veggies... I have been giving them away the last month or so and I hope this means I might start using more of them before the summer is totally gone.

I can't remember the last time I actually made something involving much more then a toaster and peanut butter.

So glad the sickness phase is passing... now when does the fatigue start to let up a bit? I can't remember. YAWN

I can't explain my MS to most people (especially my husband). It's not that I can't eat, but I don't seem to be able to cook anything. During my first pregnancy, I was working 60-70 hours a week, so I ate out or easy foods for every meal anyway and almost never had any sickness. Now, as a SAHM, I pretty much cook everything normally, so we've been eating out ALL the time to avoid my "blurg"-y feeling.

My due date's only a week behind yours, so perhaps there is hope for me yet!

Yup, I'm also often explaining to people that I can either cook or eat, not both. Don't ask me why. Lots of takeout for us too lately.

I hear you! I cooked what ended up being like a shepherd's pie (mashed potatoes, fresh garden green beans, ground beef, onions and some GF cream of mushroom soup). Normally... that would have just been the mashed potatoes =)

Yay! Me too! I just cooked something for the first time in a looooong time on Saturday night.

It feels good to be cooking again and not putting that extra strain on our finances from eating out 2 or 3 times a week.
