Sorry it’s been a while…7

Posted on October 6, 2010 by ChristieFood News

Hello lovely readers,

Sorry there hasn’t been much yummy action on here for a few weeks.

I’ve been busy preparing the nursery and going on my babymoon (one last holiday for pregnant couples before the crazy sleepless nights begin!).

There’s just over four weeks to go now, exciting times. And yes, I still have not got the baby blog live. Oh dear. It will materialise at some point, promise.

For now, here’s a lasagne I made a few weeks ago, but no recipe I’m afraid.

I slipped some wilted cavelo nero and fried eggplant chunks in the centre layer – on a whim – and it turned out to be the best lasagne I’ve ever made. Go figure.

I made the most humungous batch of bechamel sauce for the top because I love it so much. There was quite a bit left over which I ate leaning over the stove with a spoon and licked the pot clean. Chef’s secret ;)

I’ve got two big slices stashed in the freezer for an inevitable night in November when I can’t cook because I’m feeding my baby. Actually, I think I better get going and prepare a few more meals.

Chat soon, Christie x

  • Life gets in the way! enjoy it!

    • Thanks Fiona! I think it’s about to get even more busy too ;)

  • Fill the freezer while you can, you will need it more than you realize!

  • You must be getting pretty excited now with the nursery set up. Where did you go for your babymoon?

  • Vita

    That looks amazing! Not long now. Excited for you!
    And yes – the more meals in the freezer the better!

  • You’re all excused, Christie!! Take it easy and enjoy these last few weeks of relatively good sleep ;-))

  • Congratulations on the impending birth of your bub. How exciting. Yes, enjoy the last few weeks of some hopefully good sleep. A great journey ahead of you. Also, I hope you make a version of a fig and cherry cake from Dorie’s recipe. Great idea!
