amazing how this pregnancy has seemed to fly by. feels like we were just in southern baja in july, soaking in the excitement of the 1st trimester. and now that we're in the last couple of days until the "due" date...it's dragging on so slow.
soaking up the last of the "just us" time....enjoying our peace and quite and the freedom to take a nap or eat a meal together. but we're also beyond excited to meet our son any day now.
the Peruvian and i have have not been to a county fair in 15+ years. we decided to check out the hype of the LA County Fair yesterday thanks to LAUSD having a furloughed school day. it was HOT.....temperature hot (88*) for this preggo to be walking around so much. we obviously skipped out on the rides but did partake in some fair food and exhibit scooping. nice to get a good workout in (4+ hours of walking) but we think we'll probably wait another 15+ to go back. highlight for us: mini goats, i want one now for the back 40.
farmer's markets, with all of their ripe summer fruits and vegetables, are beyond inspiring and DELICIOUS this time of the year. today did not let me down. i picked up some amazing organic peaches, apricots and strawberries. there's something to be said for eating seasonal and local.
with the heat also upon us, i wanted to make something cool and easy. strawberry sorbet it was!
