I forgot to post on Baby Wednesday! Oops. I guess I can blame it on baby brain :) An update should be forthcoming! I would do it now, but I need a nap :-)

Baby Wednesday

It's true! Ryan & I are expecting our little bundle of joy mid-September! I am 10 1/2 weeks now. We had an ultrasound at 8 weeks and the baby's heartbeat was a strong 150 bpm. We are so thrilled! Belly pic to come!

Delicious Dip

I feel like I'm on a roll with this cooking thing! Last night, Dad and Jesse came over for family night and I made this fabulous dip. It was so smooth and creamy, I had to share!

Delicious Dip

1 16oz Velveeta (I ended up using just 3/4 of it)
block of cream cheese 
can of Rotel diced tomatoes and green chiles (I blended half of the tomatoes before adding)
1/4 cup chopped cilantro

Melt Velveeta and cream cheese in large saucepan. Add tomatoes. Heat through, fold in cilantro. Serve with tortilla chips.

I made this delicious recipe for Ryan and I for Valentine's Day. It turned out great, and was so easy!

Sole with Pesto Cream

4 sole fillets (about 5 ounces each)

Salt and freshly ground black pepper

1 tablespoon olive oil

2 tablespoons butter

1/2 cup heavy cream

1/2 cup prepared basil pesto

1 teaspoon finely grated lemon zest

1 cup rice, regular or instant, cooked according to package directions

Ground paprika

Season both sides of sole with salt and black pepper. In a large skillet, heat oil and butter over medium-high heat. Add sole and cook 1 to 2 minutes per side, until golden brown. In a medium bowl, whisk together heavy cream, pesto, and lemon zest. Add mixture to pan and bring to a simmer. Simmer 2 minutes, until sauce thickens. Transfer rice to a serving platter. Top the rice with fish and spoon sauce over top. Sprinkle paprika over top just before serving.

This weekend some girls went up to the Edson's cabin in Showlow and enjoyed a fun girls weekend! We made lots of memories.
