The Yay Friday Round Up: Hungry Pregnant Woman Edition

So I’m massively pregnant. The kind of massive that leads people to gingerly ask, “when are you due, honey” and then try to hide the look of horror when I answer “March” instead of “tomorrow”, like they were obviously expecting.

Long story short, this kid is growing like a weed. I’m hungry. Constantly.

Sooooo….I may be spending a bit more time than usual perusing the food blogs. Hope you enjoy the fruits of my hungry browsing!

I received a package of Ibarra for Christmas. I’m going to whip up Gabriela’s version of Mexican Hot Chocolate, asap!

I love sourdough…well, anything but the recipes always seem like such a pain in the tush. Not anymore! Reluctant Entertainer, Sandy, shares a waffle trick.

I just discovered Lunch with Front Studio. I can’t get enough. I may or may not have lost a good 30 minutes to the archives of this blog this week.

DIY “Peanutella” from Smitten Kitchen. Are. You. KIDDING. Me.

Karen Walrond has been sharing her Seattle book tour trip this week. This post is a favorite, possibly due to my unrelenting affection for coffee.

And since it can’t be all chocolate and waffles around here…

Enjoy a great post from Jenny of Little Green Notebook on how to grow you blog. (It’s a summary of the session she was a panelist on at Alt.)

I’m always fascinated to learn about how other people juggle working from home. Ali Edwards shared her schedule and some insightful thoughts on the topic this week.


Have a great weekend!

    I can’t say I’m down with Peanutella. There’s Nutella and NOTHING ELSE.

    I’m not a sweets craver with this pregnancy. I think I’d prefer to eat Thai food for every meal.

      I could eat carbs non-stop these days. Bring on the biscuits…the cake…the cookies…the tortillas…

    I clicked over from Facebook because I am a pregnant woman who is hungry RIGHT NOW. Unfortunately, this blog post did not put food in my belly, but it does have some great ideas! Now to figure out which restaurant to go to tonight….

      🙂 Alas, we have not figured out to tie food-delivery directly to post-reading. But I will get on that!
