Pork with Apples, Ginger & Honey.Мясо по-валлийски мы попробовали в гостях у Игната. Нам очень понравилось! Вика любезно прислала мне рецепт, и вчера я выбралась это блюдо приготовить. Моей маме тоже понравилось! С фланом я не заморачивалась (хотя он тоже был вкусным), а просто подала на гарнир пюре и маринованые грибочки. Спасибо, Вика!

Для свинины:

AJAX Powered Photography Tab

Photography tab is now powered by AJAX.I’ve been wanting to add some AJAX functionality to the Photography (Photostream) Section of this blog for some time now. The browsing of photos seems like a perfect fit to be done this way to speed up the process and not have to reload the same stylesheets, javascripts and static images over and over again.

I used jQuery (comes bundled with WordPress) to implement the functionality. I created an XML output based on the same very template that is used to display the normal photo page and the generation of the dynamic XML itself is handled natively by WordPress. I’ve ran into some conflicts with Prototype (used to power Lightbox feature), but was able to sort all of them out. Continue Reading

Arosha — 7 Months

Arosha in his walking thingy, 7 months and half a day old.Today Arosha has turned 7 months! Happy birthday, little one! We love you!

I’ve noticed that the days go by faster now, and with each day Arosha is becoming more and more aware of the world around him. When he hears a sound, he just has to turn his head and see what’s going on. It makes the nursing a bit more difficult (I don’t talk or even read stuff on the iPhone anymore while nursing), but I guess that’s actually a good thing. )

Umm, D700! Yuuum!Arosha still nurses often throughout day and night. The longest he can wait between feedings is probably 3.5 hours, but usually it is closer to 2.5. He does not like solid food all that much, but we keep offering it to him. So far he’s tried butternut squash, sweet potatoes, carrots, apples, bananas, avocado, peach and buckwheat. He could not get enough of bananas at some point, but then his passion cooled down a few degrees. Continue Reading

Meat and Potatoes Pie

Meat and Potatoes Pie.I made this pie yesterday, and it would have been gone yesterday, have I not wisely preserved part of it for tonight’s dinner. ) It came out delicious!

I used beef since lamb is not easy to find in our neighborhood. I also used young potatoes (I think they add a touch of sweetness to the filling) and a bit more spices than the recipe calls for. I will definitely make this again! Mrs. Mansurov published an excellent set of photographs illustrating the process, which made it even easier for me.

New Skill

Almost ready to crawl.Suddenly, yesterday, Arosha developed a new skill — now he’s able to get on all fours and he’s almost ready to crawl. He can get his knees under him and his arms fully stretched out. On rare occasions before he was able to get his knees under, but his upper body would rest on his elbows or just lay flat. He keeps swaying back and forth in this position now.

He has been doing this all day yesterday and, sadly for us, a good part of the night too. And in the morning again. At night I heard weird sounds, walked up to his bed to find him on all fours looking at me. He also started adding consonants to his vowels. Now he keeps saying ba-ba-ba-ba-ma-ma-ma a lot.
