Just a little update...

How in the world will I tote my baby around for another 6-9 months until he learns to walk? He will be way too heavy! He is already pretty heavy:)

We were all sick over the holidays, but seem to be on the mend now. Hope we are completely well and back into the swing of things before we head to Jackson, MS in 2 weeks.

Do you remember when I wrote about the nursing cover giveaway from MBSprout? I've really enjoyed using it... in fact, when John Andrew was only 3 days old and we had to go to his doctor's appointment, his pediatrician complimented it! That was just the first of many compliments I have received. If you or someone you know is pregnant or recently had a baby, I definitely recommend one of these.

Have you ever cooked with bulgur wheat? I haven't. I'm sure I've eaten it, but I've never cooked with it. But, I found some recently in the bulk section of our grocery, and since we have been enjoying a variety of whole grains as hot cereals compliments of the crock pot or rice cooker, I am going to try this!. Supposedly, it doesn't need to cook long, so I should be able to do it in the rice cooker (ratio of 1:2 for grain:water). BUT I also read that you could do it overnight in the crock pot... mixing it with other grains such as barley, oats, etc. The ratio then is 1:3. I might try this, too, as I still haven't totally sold the girls on barley for breakfast. I also think this recipe looks interesting. And bulgur apparently makes a much more nutritious substitute for couscous and rice as a side dish.

Also, sometimes I write about things other than food and my kids. Just not today.
