Ok, here are the bullet points:
1. No baby yet. I am due today. My daughter was born on her due date (Only 4-5% of babies come on the actual due date) and I don’t think we’ll get that lucky again. I am scheduled to be induced on Tuesday morning if the boy hasn’t arrived before then.
2. As a result, I am exhausted. I have two more testing reports to write for work and then I’m done. I may or may not go into work tomorrow for a few hours just to wrap up- it will depend on how I feel (and if the baby comes tonight).
3. Also, as a result, I haven’t meal planned at all for this week. As in ordered spicy Chinese food last night (and took a long walk at the zoo today) and had carrots, celery and dip tonight. Since I haven’t planned, I have made THREE trips to two different grocery stores in as many days. So we have staples- milk, eggs, cheese, cereal, etc.- but no real ingredients for meals. It means that I sort of wandered aimlessly through the grocery stores, picking up and putting down various items. I had forgotten how much prepared or just-add-water food there is out there (and was reminded of the long-running joke in my house growing up, based on an old Sally Forth comic strip, “Do you want something from a bag or from a box? From the freezer or the fridge?”).
4. The best part of my wanderings is that I found this:
Yes, you’re reading it right. Chocolate goat cheese. I was curious enough to spend $8 on it. I tasted it and it’s smooth, creamy, tangy and sweet, all at the same time.
My problem? I have no idea what to do with it. A google search yielded a few ideas- goat cheese canapes, truffles and frosting- but these do no appeal. So this is where you all come in.
What would you do with it? Let me know in the comments and maybe I’ll try it.
