As you may have noticed, I haven’t had many new recipes to post in the last few weeks. It’s hard to think of and try new meals, when so many of my regular favorites now turn my stomach. ┬áThat’s right, I’m pregnant!

Adam and I were lucky to be able to tell our families in person while we were in Arizona on vacation last week. The weather in north-eastern Arizona was mild, breezy, and beautifully sunny. The scenery wasn’t bad either!

The carnitas dinner on Wednesday night was a hit, though I did start to feel nauseated from the smell of pork while cooking the second batch. The ice cream, on the other hand, was amazing and did not make me nauseated at all! I highly recommend Rick Bayless’ recipe for Cinnamon Vanilla Custard Ice Cream, which I made with heavy cream instead of milk for a thick texture.

I am beginning to feel more normal appetite-wise, and will do my very best to keep experimenting in the kitchen as I continue along with my pregnancy. This is undoubtably the most important time for me to be eating well, after all! Here’s to the start of a whole new adventure on the micro-farm!
