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!
