Adventures in Pregnancy – They Can’t All Be Good Days…

Today has just been one of those days where pregnancy kicks my ass.

I’m blessed this isn’t the norm, and grateful I have a husband who can prepare the slightly indulgent dinner my heart desires (WITHOUT judging me 😉)… tomorrow is a new day!

Did you have an easy pregnancy?

Treats from the Grill – Chicken wings!

When my husband makes his famous (and delicious!) chicken wings on the grill, I get beyond happy! 😍

Do you like chicken wings? Got any favorite sauces? My husband has tons of different concoctions he whips up, so we never get bored… after all, very IS the spice of life!

Monday Eats – Pulled Pork on our Burgers!

It’s finally decent weather for some prime grilling!

We are having burgers topped with our pulled pork from yesterday, because that’s how my husband rolls and you sure as shit won’t catch me complaining about it! 😍

We also had delicious zucchini and peppers on the grill too – my entire pregnancy I have craved veggies (which is also me not pregnant, haha)

Life is Short – Eat the Zeppole!

We are having our yumminess a day late, because I was too full yesterday!

Baby will enjoy his or her first zeppole, and so won’t mom and dad!

Would I eat this every day? No (but I could, easily!) but I look forward to this splurge every year and I enjoy every bite with absolutely ZERO guilt.

I’ll take some extra insulin and enjoy every morsel – Diabetic or not, life is short; you DO have to live a little, dontcha know?! 😉

Did you enjoy a zeppole this year?

Tasty Thursday – Taco Salad

I don’t always make taco salad for dinner, but when I do, I really do! 😍

Do you like taco salad? I love it… we have it more in the summer, but we were in the mood, so why not?

I haven’t had too many cravings with this pregnancy, so when I do get them, I indulge, because the rest of my stuff is so balanced, it won’t hurt me.

It was delish!

Tasty Tuesday – Creamy Parm Tortellini Soup

If you are looking for a warming, filling and super delicious dish to get through these bitterly cold days, this one was PERFECT! 😍

Warmed me up after being chilled to the bones for weeks!

Creamy Parm Tortellini Soup

Of note: we added chicken to get protein in. I also suggested next time we could try it with small meatballs like in Italian Wedding Soup, because I bet it’d be delicious!

And we seasoned to our taste, because recipes always go light on the seasoning and we LOVE seasoning!

So good!
