After church today I took a nap and had a dream of eating fatty steaks. I guess being 33 weeks pregnant can do that to you. I also think that your body has ways to naturally tell you what it needs, and I think that my dream was doing just that.
Of course being pregnant, a lot of people really try to eat healthy in order to give the baby the best nutrients possible. I think sometimes we may over do it and what we think we are supposed to be eating isn’t sometimes getting our bodies everything it really does need. What are some of your thoughts about this?
My dogs are a huge part of my life which is why I picked up everything and moved out here to the country not too long ago. I wanted them to have more room to run around and play but I haven’t moved for the longest time because I was worried about giving up so much in the way of the city. I’d truly become accustomed to going out for pizza at 11pm and catching a movie just because it was next door. The country’s been great though and I’m really making this old farmhouse into something I can be proud of. I’ve researched satellite provider and a guy to rebuild the fence and so far the dogs absolutely love it. They get to run around all day in the yard and I can see them from the windows and by the time they come back in for dinner they’re exhausted. I’m happy I’m giving them a great life and I know they’re glad to be all the way out in the boonies with me!
Today we will talk about apple. Apple is not really my favorite fruit, when I was in Philippines some people loves Fuji apple but not me. When I cam here in the US I found out there are different kinds of apple, I love to eat the crispy one just like Gala and Red delicious. The apples in the box is free so I get to get a lot. I found out that the fresh harvest apple is very juicy and crispy I love it so much.
Being from the Philippines, I miss a lot of the fruits and vegetables that are grown there, which are not readily available here in the USA. In early spring I had gone to the Asain food market to get some items and found some lemon grass that was already brown and dry. So I decided to put it in some water and see if I could get it to grow, therefore allowing me to have fresh lemon grass available for my cooking. After a few weeks of just letting the grass sit in a jar full of water, the grass started to turn green. After another week of letting it sit in the water, I planted it in a pot. By mid summer my little grass experiment has become a full grown plant that I get fresh lemon grass when I want it for my cooking needs. You can see a picture of it here.
