Feed Me Friday: March 27th

On "Feed Me Friday," I share the items in my feed reader that have inspired me or have caused me to pause and think.

This photo pretty much sums up my existence these days. Keeping up with Caroline's nursing schedule (while trying to keep up with everyday life) has left me exhausted. More often than not, Stephen has walked into the room to find me dozing with the baby in my arms because I was too tired after breastfeeding to put her back in her crib or in the Pack 'n Play we have set up in the living room.

You'd think that falling asleep like this would bother someone like me, someone who has lived her life according to set schedules and routines. But, honestly? I absolutely love these unexpected naps with the baby. Even though they're brief, I'll take all the naps I can get!

While adjusting to motherhood has limited me in terms of having time to create new content for Taste As You Go, it has given me much more time to catch up on reading other blogs and websites... especially during the middle-of-the-night feedings.

If you want to see what's been inspiring me lately, then keep reading!

Not Exactly According to Plan {The First Week of Motherhood}

Sometimes life throws you curve balls that no amount of planning can prepare you for.

You may have noticed that I've been somewhat M.I.A. lately, both here on Taste As You Go and on my various social media accounts. Depending on how you keep tabs on me, you may already know the reason why I've been relatively silent.

I promise, it's the best reason in the world.

33 Ways to Cook Pork {Recipe Round-Up}

Are you looking for inspiration when it comes to cooking pork? Then be sure you check out this amazing round-up of pork recipes on Taste As You Go!
33 Ways to Cook Pork

It's another snowy day here in the Lehigh Valley, but, for some reason, I don't seem to mind. Perhaps it's because I know that I can just stay put inside... or because I already have dinner cooking away in the slow-cooker for later (not including the side dishes). Whatever the reason, watching the snow fall is having a calming effect on me, which is exactly what I need as I transition into week 36 of my pregnancy.

Since I'm making pork loin for dinner, it seems only fitting that pork is the star of this month's recipe round-up on Taste As You Go. I've enlisted the help of my fellow food bloggers to put together this photo-heavy round-up of 33 Ways to Cook Pork that can be used as dinner inspiration down the road. If you're curious to see what made the cut, then keep reading!
