I finished my second semester of culinary school.

I achieved my goal of finishing culinary school this semester. I finished right at eight months pregnant which was a tight fit. I will be honest, this semester was a tough one because I was full-time and the classes were a bit challenging. My final exam was given last Friday in Food Production II. The class was given a mystery basket, a sheet of paper to write a menu, and an hour to finish the meal. These are a few of the mystery ingredients that were in my basket, a large carrot, three eggs, flour, chicken, and fresh spinach. I decided to utilize my ingredients and make a pan fried chicken over a bed of creamed spinach with roasted carrots. I had a few points taken off my practical exam because I did not have a starch on my plate, otherwise, I did a good job!
Here is a recent pic of the baby belly:

So, I have good news and bad. The good news is the baby is doing great and we we’re able to hear the heart beat. Bad news: Doctor got the dates mixed up and told us we would be finding out today but in reality we won’t find out until 4 more weeks. Darn it! They took blood today to test for birth defects ect.. as well. Dr. Wood said listening to the hearbeat it sounded like a boy. We shall soon see! Sept 5 at 9:00 a.m in the morning will be the official date.. The baby is about the size of a small avocado..so tiny and sweet ❤
