Spiced Peach Nog Cobbler and Update

Spiced Peach Nog Cobbler 

 So here I am still waiting on God's timing. What have I been doing with my time? I totally do not feel like lounging around like lazy bones, but I have not been overdoing it either. 

Monday, I went to my Zumba class with my favorite teacher, Antonio. He told me he thought I would have given birth already. Well, I think many have thought that too! I have to admit that Zumba was not as MUCH as fun as last week because I was a little uncomfortable in my lower abdomen region. I remember the gym owner telling me she worked out a few days before giving birth and encouraged me to continue the classes, granted Zumba is only twice a week so I have been walking the other days.

Here is it Wednesday and I am still pregnant with some contractions throughout the day. Nothing too big but they are definitely different than Braxton Hicks contractions. Ryan was talking to the baby through my tummy yesterday asking her when she was coming out and BOY did she respond with movement that made me nauseous! LOL  Ryan continued to chat with her and I told him he had to stop because mommy was going to get sick on him. Yes, we are a mess here. 

You know what I realized though, is that now that the concert is over that the only thing looming over is the baby's arrival and it is crazy unnerving. As I was taking a 45 minute walk yesterday I was talking to God and getting teary because I cannot believe that this baby is almost here. The gift of life is incredible but the emotion is so amazing! God's timing is awesome.

Well, so besides working out or doing a little more cleaning in the house, I have been cooking a little, catching up on Netflix, reading a bit and catching up on posts. Someone still needs to cook right? This morning I felt SO hungry I demanded to be taken out for breakfast. I HAD to have a piece of fruit as I got up from bed but I was terribly famished but the desire to cook has been lacking.

I at least have 2 freezer meals stored at my friend's deep freezer and 2 nights ago I quickly made my Tortilla Soup and froze half of it. Might as well make the most of my time right?

  Last night I felt inspired to make a peach cobbler. I have not had a peach cobbler in a while even with peach season that came and went here in August. I actually did not hear much about the peaches but I used frozen peaches to make mine.

Recently, So Delicious sent me 2 of their NEW Holiday drinks, a Nog Coconut Milk (a vegan egg nog) and Mint Chocolate Coconut Milk. Can I say super yummy???? I immediately poured myself a glass of the nog and sighed after because it was so good. I stopped drinking Silk's Nog because it left a weird aftertaste and I also wanted to limit of soy in my diet, so it was REAL nice to have this coconut milk version. You should be excited folks! You are going to love these drinks for sure. The Mint Chocolate Coconut milk tastes like a thin mint cookie...hmmmm...nom nom. 

I took advantage of using my So Delicious Nog Coconut milk for my peach cobbler.  I subsituted the milk in the recipe for nog and I also added Nog into the peach mixture as well. It was super delicious!! I also drank a glass of the Nog with the dessert to accentuate the flavor. Can't get enough. Thanks So Delicious for letting me have the opportunity to taste test these products.

I saw this nog over and Peas and Thank You and it looked pretty good, so glad to see that it gets thumbs up from two fantastic foodies.
Your girl is just chilling and enjoying her mommy time. God has his plan and it will be revealed at the appropriate time.
Keep up the positive attitude! You look fabulous and I cannot wait until you can share a birth story with us.
