Ten on Tuesday & 24 Weeks

I've enjoyed reading the ToT entries that I've been seeing on blogs and wanted to participate, so I finally am today. Yay! Go me :)

You can find the questions over at the lovely Roots & Rings blog.

1. What condiments are always, always in your fridge?

Easy. Diana's Sauce. I could drink this stuff. For those who don't know who it is (you're missing out) it's barbecue sauce. The best ever. Right now I eat a grilled cheese a day, and I'm one of those people who like barbecue sauce with it. Mmm. I think I'm going to have to make one soon...

2. How do you like your steak cooked? Your burgers?

I haven't had steak in well over a year, and burgers very rarely right now. I just started eating meat again during this pregnancy, but these two things are still a bit hard for me to eat. But I always like them cooked so that I can't see any pink, or only a scant amount of it.

3. What's your favorite use of fresh tomatoes?

The only kind of tomato that I like are roma or plum tomatoes. And I love cutting them up and making a simple bruschetta with them :) Especially in the summer! Delicious.

4. What is your go-to dinner when you haven't planned anything in advance and you don't feel like going out?

I would say meat from the freezer, the kind that's in boxes. Like frozen chicken breasts, breaded fish. And rice, either minute, jasmine, or basmati, and frozen or fresh veg tables. Quick and easy!

5. What's your favorite snack food lately?

Right now I really like apples, cheese and crackers, or chocolate :) Do those count as snack foods?

6. What's your favorite weekend breakfast to make at home?

I usually don't do anything different on the weekend than during the week. Right now my usual is a bowl of cereal. If we want bacon and eggs sort of breakfast we go out because I can't stand the house, my clothes, and my hair smelling like bacon.

7. What's your favorite thing to grill? How do you do it?

I don't grill anything. I'm kind of afraid of the barbeque so that's one of my husbands jobs. I use the oven.

8. What's your favorite wine for under $10? If your not a wine person, what brand of beer is your favorite?

I really like Fuzion wine, I don't know if it's only available in Ontario. I think its $7.35. It's a shiraz/Malbec mix and for the price I think its a really nice wine. Bottle looks nice too, plus it has a twist off lid!

9. Give us your most delicious cocktail recipe.

I don't have a single cocktail recipe. I haven't had a drink in almost a year and when I do I drink wine or Jamaican Rum and diet coke.

10. How do you like your eggs?

Either hard boiled and eaten on their own, in potato salad, or an egg salad sandwich. Or a fried egg sandwich on toast or English muffin.

As for me, we will be 25 weeks tomorrow! Hurrah :) This feels like a milestone to us! So excited that we've gotten to this point and the baby seems to be growing well and is healthy. Feeling lots and lots of movements and thumps and taps. Seems to always move when I'm blow drying and straightening my hair, folding warm clothes out of the dryer and when I'm standing in front of the stove - I think it must like to feel the heat or something! Although, it doesn't move when I'm in the bathtub, which is when everyone told me it would go crazy. I felt the biggest kick yet this morning when I was doing my hair, caught me by surprise! Must be getting stronger :)
