Week 13 – Peach

Week 13 – Peach

Millions of peaches, peaches for me. Millions of peaches, peaches for free. Such a good song, but not as good as the BEST song from Presidents of the USA, oh how I can’t wait until we have our #fakebabies and we can dance to Lump again, but I digress.

13 weeks of pregnancy, one third of the way there, didn’t it just seem like it was 1/4 of the way? So many maths, but as long as time is flying by, I’ll do ALL the maths. Can you believe it’s the beginning of the second trimester? This is the time when a lot of people begin to tell others, do you think it’s time we share our news?! 😂 This is the period when we should be feeling our best; what is that, the honeymoon phase? Past the morning sickness but before we get uncomfortable, ironically resembling real life.

The fake babies are already 3 inches long and their heads are 1/3 the size of their bodies, as opposed to the 1/2 they were, look! more maths. Geez, sorry about so many fractions. Who knew?! The babies are now making urine, peeing into and drinking the amniotic fluid–a pregnancy fun fact!

Muddling, slicing, pureeing, baking or just eating peaches whole- there really is no wrong way to eat a peach. These stone fruits are best eaten during the summer when they’re fresh, alas for now we have to settle for the canned peach. The 1980’s just called and wants their salad bar peaches back. This by far has been the hardest food, I think because I just decided I actually don’t like canned peaches.

I started with peach pancakes and tried my baby food trick (remember the plums?) but they didn’t taste good. No bueno! As a side note, I think it’s important to teach the babies a second language. But, this towering stack of pancakes really reminded me of the Shell Silverstein poem which I wanted to incorporate. So, I did!

Next I was sure a keto style peach crumble would be the way to go… Again, it didn’t taste right with the canned peaches. Too slimy? This is starting to sound like Goldilocks and The Three Bears..

My third and final attempt is what you get. Peach Salsa. It coincided well with Nana’s enchiladas. Cause you know I don’t have any chips in the house.

*I used a whole onion, like suggested, I think it was too much, I’d try half.
