Whew! Well, thank you to everyone who has been hanging on through this Mid-Century Menu drought! And thank you to everyone who emailed me and commented asking if everything was okay. Everything was just fine, and now it is even better because I am done with my big “project.”
TJ, or Thomas Jonathan, was born about three weeks ago, and we are so happy that he is finally here. And I am so happy that I am done being pregnant! Besides the normal pregnancy irritations and worries, I also had gestational diabetes and was told by my doctor in about month six that I needed to “stop making and eating all that weird food.” So I stopped testing recipes. In fact, I stopped looking at recipes all together because I couldn’t stand it. I missed testing recipes, and you guys, dreadfully.
But we are back in business now! You can expect lots of “new” vintage recipes from here on out, though I might miss a few weeks here and there due to sleeplessness and the amazing amount of dirty diapers we have to change. Seriously. TJ eats like a champ!
Thanks for sticking with me, and I can’t wait to get back to making and sharing “weird” food!
Congratulations! I sure have missed your posts, but am glad to see it was for the best reason ever. You and Tom do great work!
Congrats! And I FINALLY tried some of your recipes after years and years of reading your site. They were both big successes as part of our comfort-themed Thanksgiving.
Congratulations! That is a VERY vintage recipe you’ve been working on for nine months. I’m sure you will find it quite scrumptious! What a cutie pie.
Both of your kids are so cute!! He looks like he doesn’t know what to think of big sis!
Congrats. Another taste tester!
Congratulations!!! What a beautiful blessing. We sure missed you, but of course family comes first. 🙂
Congrats again! He’s a real cutie!
Tom finally has some “male reinforcements”! He looks like a mini Tom and a perfect compliment to your “mini you” Alex. Congratulations! Mid-century baby food recipes in the future, perhaps? 🙂
Congratulations! He’s beautiful!
Ahhhh, oh my gosh, congratulations! You must be so thrilled!
Ohhhh…congratulations! I thought you were getting tired of making new things. I got the tired part right. Beautiful little guy!
Oh, he is adorable!!! Congratulations, much happiness to all of you!
I’m glad you’re back, I was wondering why no new recipes in so long.
Congratulations! You have a beautiful addition to a beautiful family!
Congratulations! He’s precious! A worthy reason for leaving us all without new recipes, I think 😉
Congratulations! He is so precious!
I binge read your entire blog within a few weeks a couple months back. I completely fell in love but school started up and I lost the time I had. The adorable face of your son was such a sweet welcome back to the blog.
Mazal Tov! You and Tom definitely make gorgeous children! You have another helper in the mid-century kitchen.
Wishing you all joy, love, and some sleep.
Congratulations on a successful recipe! I think you can put both of these delightful kids in THE BEST section 🙂
Awww…he’s beautiful! Congratulations! And it sounds like you’ll have a willing participant for future taste tests. 🙂
Congratulations on having two such lovely children. Very best wishes from England!
Congrats! I had gestational diabetes as well, and interestingly one of the few sweets I could eat was sugar-free jello. I think I ate more jello at that time than any other in my entire life!
Congrats! He’s very cute and looks like he’ll probably be just as red-haired as his sister! (Can be a problem, my brother’s dealing with explaining to one of his kids why he doesn’t have hair like his stepsisters.)
Yay! Sweet babies…
Congratulations on the new arrival! Very glad to know that you’ll be back to trying “new” recipes and sharing the hilarious results with us. We missed you!
Congratulations on your beautiful baby boy.
Wow! What a beautiful boy! Congrats! Get some rest. You deserve it!
Congratulations on the little one!
I feel you, I had Gestational Diabetes and pre-eclampsia at my daughter. The evil diabetes menu was…evil XD
Long-time lurker, first-time commenter…
YAY! Congratulations on the healthy (and ridiculously cute) new kiddo.
Ahh…you and Michelle from Brown Eyed Baker need to get together. Her little boy is just about a month or so older!
He is absolutely precious Ruth!!! Congrats to y’all!! I bet you’re sooo excited to get back to your vintage recipes! 😀
Aw, congrats – he’s gorgeous!
