What we have been up to!

I have not blogged in a long time! Erin has entered her third tri-mester and we found out she has gestational diabetes! This will be making quite a change in our diets and our cooking! Basically she needs to stay away from sugars and keep track of her carbohydrate intake. We went to a class at Sharp Mary Birch this morning and got some good tips!

The other thing I have been doing on the weekends is:

Working on the baby's room! As you can see above we are doing wainscoting all they way around the room with chair molding and new base boards. We also did crown moulding all around the top. In the top picture you can see we cased the window and built a bigger window sill. The bottom is the other wall we finished! So we have two walls completely done with one more long wall and a short wall to go. The other thing we did is new casing around the door and added casing around the closet which has no doors. We plan to leave the closet doors off and add some type of shelving inside. Will post more pics as we get closer!

As far as cooking we did make some pork chops last night. I just made a quick paste with the following:

1Tbls Maldin's Salt

2-3 Tbls Fresh Rosemary

2 tsp salt

1 Tbls Extra Virgin Olive Oil

Just mixed them all together in my motar and ground them toghether with the pestle until a thick paste was formed! We rubbed it on the pork chops and let them sit for about an hour then grilled them up! Gave a real light rosemary taste. They were wonderful!
