I am not saying that because I am pregnant. I am quoting Josh. He is very happy the first trimester is over and I can cook now without feeling the urge to puke. We are now hitting month number five. It is just a week away. Crazy how time flies.

So onto the food. Those of you who know me, know I like to cook and it is a hobby I do quite well. Here are some of the latest dishes we have had.

Blackeyed peas w/sauteed spinach and cheeze grits. A delicious Southern recipe.

Asian Noodles w/ Peanut butter and chilies. This dish was awesome. The leftovers were great too. It can be eaten hot or cold. Yum!

Spicy chickpea snack. Really good and healthy. They turn out crunchy. Arthur likes them too. They kind of remind me of corn nuts.

"Chicken" and dumplings. Such good comfort food.

Tofu lettuce wraps. These were freakin' awesome. I made a peanut sauce to accompany them. Yum!

Lowfat chocolate bunt cake. This is so rich, it does not taste lowfat or vegan. Eat your heart out Betty Crocker.

Aloo Gabi, darn good Indian food I made.

Simple Blueberry Muffins, that Arthur loves!

Ethiopian food that we made. This stuff was freakin' awesome. The recipes came from the zine Papa Tofu. Thanks KitteeKake!

I know this a long post, but I three weeks of catching up to do.

Mother's Day was nice. We went and saw my grandparents on Saturday and then hung out on Sunday. Josh, Arthur and I went to a park here that has beautiful peacocks that run around on the grounds. After that we went to dinner at one of my favorite vegetarian restaurants.

My sweet Arthur. He's so cute.

This past Saturday, some coworkers and I participated in the March of Dimes WalkAmerica. It helps to raise awareness for premature babies and birth defects. Thank you to all of those who donated to such a worthy cause.

Okay, this is weird, but true. I was talking to one of my friends about this and they seem to have felt the same or have known others who feel the same way. Do you ever get the feeling that you have relatives who just do not like you? Even though you have never caused them harm. For some reason you are not what they want in a relative and the only reason they associate with you is because you are related to them and they feel an obligation. Or they talk to you because you have a kid. Why bother? If you don't want to be around someone, don't waste your time or their's. I feel that way sometimes. They seem annoyed by us or embarrassed and always are short with us in their tone of voice or are just rude in their comments, but never seem to talk to other relatives that way when we are around. They act as if we are just dumbass kids. When we are hardworking, God fearing, good parents, who ask for nothing to harm them. It is almost as though, if we disappeared off the face of the earth there would be no love lost for them. Sad, but true. The definition of family has definitely changed over the years.

Alright, enough of that. We have a baby check up this Thursday. I am not sure what the doctor is going to do this time around, but we shall see. Josh is hoping to find out if Arthur is having a brother or sister. I haven't decided yet, if I want to know. I just want a healthy baby like Arthur.

I am going to close for now. I hope each of you has a wonderful week. Happy Mother's Day to all the mom's out there.

peas and love....
