Homemaking Basics

Since I became pregnant, I have been neglecting some my wifely duties, namely cooking and cleaning. Remember when we first got married and I would post about all the delicious meals I was making? Pork chops, enchiladas, peanut sauce chicken. And now the extent of my cooking is grilling a grilled cheese sandwich, and if I’m lucky, heating up some soup. But it’s not my fault! I’m blaming it on the baby. How am I expected to cook food if just the site of some items make me sick? I don’t even have to see some foods, just the smell or the literal thought of eating it makes me nauseous. Oh, gosh, that makes me think of one such item. Now I have to try to clear my thoughts.

And cleaning. In the first trimester you’re not supposed to be around chemicals and such, so I haven’t really wanted to clean my shower and inhale those 409 toxins. (Is toxins the correct word? It sounds right…)

But as I am leaving the first trimester and I’m not feeling nauseous everyday now, I’m trying to get back into those routines and be a better homemaker. I decided that everyday I will conquer one cleaning project. So, then I don’t feel like I have to clean the whole house on Saturdays like I used to. And now, I really want to try to cook dinners a few times a week.

Here is where YOU come in. I need easy and, most importantly, healthy recipes or ideas that I can make for T.J. and I this summer. We have a George Foreman grill, so tell me what to grill and instruct me which sides I create. I do NOT want to blow up like a balloon in this pregnancy (well, not more than I already will), so I need all the help I can get. Please leave me a comment on this post or send me a message here.
