You may have noticed my absence... that's because I went into labor on Thursday afternoon while making this:
And on Friday, this guy was born:
The first thing is a casserole made of Latin-themed leftovers we had on hand-- some tomato sauce flavored with cumin and oregano, a layer of polenta, a layer of leftover black bean filling, a layer of black bean-nooch sauce dip, and finally, some crushed tortilla chips. We ate it with homemade guac on top.
The second thing is Latchkey Lime Pie from the PPK blog. I made a cinnamon cookie crust that's not GF, but the filling is GF and would taste delicious in anything. Highly recommended. (Though next time I'll bump up the zest.)
The third thing is Wren! The Emperor's little brother! He doesn't have an internet nickname yet... I'll get back to you guys on that.
We got home from the hospital yesterday afternoon and things have been pretty smooth so far. The Emperor is handling the situation with as much grace and aplomb as a 2 year old possibly can, which is to say... some grace. Some aplomb.
I'm hoping to return to blogging (with a new theme!) by the end of the month at the latest. We'll see!
In the meantime, here's a late daily Emperor! With company!
