First Meal

T.M. and I are lucky first-time parents, surrounded as we are by so many family members. We have been showered with love, support--and food. Our new fridge is full of frozen dinners, lovingly prepared by mothers, mother-in-laws, aunts, and grandmothers. We are truly grateful for such culinary bounty.

However, cooking is one of my favorite things, and I was thrilled to be able to produce my first postpartum, post-move meal the other night. My lovely lovely husband held the baby while I went to the store (by myself!), and cooked the following menu:

pork tenderloin with orange dijon glaze

roasted acorn squash

salad with arugula, fresh corn, tomatoes, and avacado

fresh bread (NOT homemade!)

I was very proud of myself!


  1. Ben and I debated about ordering a pizza for you guys online and having it delivered and somehow that just didn't seem to fit.

  2. Brandy. That would have been Hil-arious. I commend your brilliance! Wish you could be here to eat pizza with us...
