Feeling SO grateful for all the friends who have brought us amazing food to fuel us through month 1 with a newborn! A fellow MOMS club member brought by this killer sausages/peppers/onions/potatoes/sauerkraut meal tonight and I am in HEAVEN.

Tonight's excellent HelloFresh dinner: Deconstructed "lasagna" with fusilli, kale, beef, and fresh mozzarella. Feels good to be getting back into a bit of cooking, when the newborn allows. πŸ˜¬πŸ‘ΆπŸΌπŸ

Hooray for simple yet utterly satisfying dinners. Cavatappi with a broccoli/pesto cream sauce and mini pesto-turkey meatballs. Topped with Parmesan + lemon zest = YUM.

I may not make a ton of homemade dinners with a newborn at home, but when I do, I'm making my favorites. Chicken Florentine in all its buttery/creamy/cheesy/pasta-y goodness totally hit the spot! πŸ§€πŸπŸ’ƒπŸΌ

I'm not big on caffeine, so giving up caffeine for 95% of my pregnancy until now was no big deal. However, after a typical newborn night of wake ups PLUS a horrendous thunderstorm that woke up the toddler three additional times, I reunited with caffeine this morning and IT WAS GLORIOUS. β›ˆπŸ‘ΆπŸΌπŸ‘§πŸΌβ˜•οΈπŸ’ƒπŸΌ

The newest member of the Fearless Family arrived last week! He is wonderfully healthy, and super snuggly, and we are all smitten with him. Hooray for an exciting new chapter as a family of four! πŸ‘§πŸΌπŸ‘ΆπŸΌβ€οΈπŸ’™

16 weeks vs. 40 weeks. πŸŽ‰ So excited to meet our little man whenever he's ready!

First time using ricotta in making meatballs and the results were SO good! Italian wedding soup with the lightest, fluffiest lil' meatballs. πŸ‘ŒπŸ»

Just a few days from my due date (!), so I'm squeezing in a few more home-cooked meals (and taking advantage of this burst of energy). Balsamic mini meatloaves with mashed Yukon gold/sweet potatoes and roasted green beans. πŸ˜‹

Perfect Christmas with tons of family, lots of food, and the greatest gifts of all -- my sweet daughter, and the baby boy due soon! ❀️

Our family's favorite bacon, egg, + potato casserole is prepped, headed into the fridge overnight, and will make for a kickin' (+ miraculously easy) Christmas breakfast. πŸ³πŸ§€πŸ·

Took out-of-town guests to @edleyseast BBQ tonight, and I got the 1/2 rack of ribs (for the first time). SO INSANELY GOOD. And dinner was a huge hit with the Bostonians! πŸ–πŸ’ƒπŸ»
