Congratulations! Another fall baby, then?


I have to say, that sounds just disgusting (the Iron Tonic, not the pregnancy), but if it gives you more energy it's probably worth it. I hate the smell of molasses, though -- early in pregnancy, my husband made some cookies with molasses in them, and I went charging to the bathroom. Gak.

I spent the second and third months of this pregnancy on the couch napping. Nothing got done and the girls watched DVDs all day long. (That was kind of okay, since we'd already vetted all kids' DVDs anyway). And I was sick several times a day -- pretzels and milk, baby, pretzels and milk!

Best of luck to you!


Nope, early August baby. Did I count my weeks wrong?

Pretzels... I've been DYING for a proper soft pretzel. WHY CAN'T I FIND ANY IN MINNEAPOLIS? The only kind are mall pretzels steeped in butter and sprinkled with cinnamon. A pretzel should be good and salty, pale, and have the faintest bitter trace of lye (that's how they stick the salt on...)

Oh you Southern Ohioans, you have no idea how good you have it!!! The closest I can come is a salt bagel from Bruegger's.


Can you mail order frozen soft pretzels from Philadelphia? I thought I remembered a college friend from Philly having a big bag of those our freshman year. They were tasty, too.

I am a few weeks behind you in my pregnancy and I completely relate to your ideal to do list and your real to do list. I found your site searching for Lenten recipes. I'm glad to find a kindred spirit. :)



By the way, I discovered that the iron tonic is much nicer added to 4-8 ounces of milk, warm or cold.
