Saltena Cravings & the Belly Bump

This is my 25-week belly bump. The little boy who is making this belly bump kicks - A LOT! The doctor says he has a very healthy heartbeat. This active kid will keep us active, no doubt.

On Friday at work, I nearly bought a ticket for Arlington, Virginia, where there are a few good Bolivian restaurants because I was craving a saltena. I walked down to Arby's hoping a sandwich would curb the craving, but the artificialness of fastfood got to me, and I walked back to work without buying anything.
Over the next two days I spent several hours - I listened to a whole book on c.d. - making saltenas. The filling has to refrigerate over night. But, they actually turned out pretty good. Pedro loved them and actually burned his tongue a couple times because he didn't want to wait for one to cool. When asked to comment, he said, "--------." He just kept eating - a good sign.

Hey Lisa! You look great! I think you're due a week or so after me. That's fun- I hope you're not getting too uncomfortable. Sometimes I feel so big and can't believe that I'm only going to get bigger between now and when this baby comes out. -Tye
