Friday Round-up

Is one of these too much to ask for when I wake up on Sunday?

What to eat when you’re pregnant.

If I am to believe everything I read, the Spiralizer might just be the way to world peace? (Certainly zucchini pasta with fava bean pesto and grilled shrimp is reason enough to purchase.)

Those long stretches I sit in the car waiting for my kids to get out of practice? Now that this is queued up on audible, I don’t mind at all.

I’m doing a picnic today with some other moms and kids – it’s in the fridge and ready to go! But am I eligible to enter from Canada? I wish more giveaways would specify.


I have a Spiralizer. I used it once. It was a pain to use and clean and and seemed to waste a lot of vegetable matter. I went back to making noodles with my mandoline which came with three different sized shredding blades. Slightly more dangerous but easier to use and clean.
