I have been away so long, that I have no idea where to start... So, here is some random stuff I have been up to:
- First and most important, we have a little baby girl coming in April! Everything is fine until now for both of us, and we picked the name, but it'll be a secret until she's here, to avoid comments, especially from relatives. Little baby isn't here yet, but has been deciding most of our menus since about September: no meat for me, lots of soups (she has a soft spot for leek cream), grape and tangerines, but she loves other fruits too! I am at that awkward stage when I don't fit most of my normal clothes, but I am too small for maternity pants and skirts. I went shopping at H&M out of frustration anyway, and they have some cute maternity stuff!
- And I haven't shopped for little baby yet. Guess I am waiting for the sales in January.
- I have decided to fix a small Thanksgiving dinner, tomorrow, just for husband and me. I picked recipes from Saveur, I think, and will see how it goes. I am making turkey cutlets, obviously not a whole turkey!
- My sister had a cool idea for Christmas (see picture above): instead of buying presents to each other, we just donate to a charity we like. Besides the anti-consumerism aspect that I love, there is also less hassle for the finding of the perfect gift. And since little 4yo niece is excluded, I bought her present from UNICEF anyway.
