A lot has been going on in the past week.
*Last Thursday was my last day of work. YEAH!!!! Although I do miss it terribly. It just wasn't possible for me to work anymore because of the baby in my belly.
*Last Saturday was my baby shower which was a surprise up until I drove past the restaurant and saw my friend Cheryl's bright orange car with the autism sticker on it. Our apartment is now overflowing with baby stuff.
*I've was terribly sick in the beginning of the week due to the baby. Sleeping all the time, dizzy and blah.
*The 4th of July was a bore which was fine with me.
*Now that i'm feeling better and ready to cook again i'm going to my parents for the weekend..So hopefully next week i'll have a bunch of new stuff to show you all.
Because of the baby shower I made the above dish. It was a take on something served at the shower. Orecchiette w. Broccoli Rabe and Cannelini Beans. The original dish used spinach and had broth in it. I used Broccoli Rabe instead and left out the broth for more of an oil based pasta dish although I did add some of the pasta cooking water to the dish. This was better then the original at the shower. While I was making it Peter was turning up his nose at the idea of beans being in it. In the end he loved it though and thought everything was perfect about it. It's even better cold the next day. I ate it for breakfast.
Today was a hot day. (for me at least) So for lunch I made us a nice COLD and CRUNCHY salad. Raw beets, Jicama, Cucumber and Avocado over baby greens lightly dressed with lemon, olive oil, salt + pepper.
