Last night I decided to try making some baked zucchini fries. My sister-in-law, Gloria, made some once when we were visiting, and they were really good. I didn't have her recipe, but this one I found on google turned out pretty good. Savy wanted to help, so I let her cut some zucchini with her toddler knife. This was her creation...she was so proud of it!
This is my finished product. I coated the slices with egg white, then rolled them in a mixture of bread crumbs, garlic powder, salt, and pepper. Then I baked them at 450 degrees for about 20 minutes. They are great served with ranch dressing, but make sure to eat them while they're hot.
After dinner, Savy entertained us with her musical talents.
I managed to go to the gym today and actually did pretty well for a change. I also managed to get through the whole day without having to take a nap! The nausea seems to be easing up a tiny bit.
One of Jon's coworkers threw a party tonight, so we visited for a little while. I had a nice time, but it wasn't so great for my self esteem. The last thing you want when you're pregnant is to be in a house full of people who are NOT pregnant. Especially when you are only about 8 weeks along but look like you are 5 months along. I'm not kidding. People are asking me if I know the sex yet for pete's sake...they look shocked when I say I'm only 8 weeks! I should post some belly shots this week so you guys can see for yourselves.
I had Savy's sippy cup of water in my purse on the way there. It leaked A LOT, and the inside of my purse was soaked. It also soaked through onto my shirt and pants while I had it on my shoulder. So not only did I get to walk in and feel like a big ole mom blob, but I also had a big ole wet spot on my butt. That would've been ok because water will dry and doesn't stain, right? Except there was a dark indigo crayon in the bottom, and the dark indigo paper on that crayon bled all over and soaked through to the outside. Now my favorite purse is ruined :( Jon said I should just continue to use it because "who cares if it's stained"....ummm, anyone care to answer that one for him?
