Dim Sum Sunday

Monday, July 2, 2012

In the keeping with the new Sunday tradition of keeping ourselves busy until Baby M gets here, Teddy and I took a little trip to Chinatown yesterday.  Ted had never had a real banquet style dim sum experience so we figured now was the time (or, rather, I figured that).

I am not sure that food outings are appropriate any longer at this stage in my pregnancy.  Saturday, I spent the day with Suzy.  We stopped for a Slurpee on our way home in the afternoon and I got called "Fatso" by a drunk with an enormous grin (he was REAL proud of himself for coming up with that one).  He got super close and was seriously about start manhandling my baby bump.  Suzy worried she'd have to step in to manage the situation.  Yesterday, in Chinatown, a guy we had just seen fishing a menu out a trash can called after me "Hey Big Ma'am!"  Ted told him to screw off.  He was ready to throw down to protect my honor.  But, listen, I totally get it.  People can't help themselves.


I think I have pushed the pregnant limits.  I am about as big as I ever got with Max during my pregnancy, but remember - I delivered him at 36 and a half weeks - exactly how far along I am right now.  And this kid is constantly moving and pushing downwards.  Eating a bunch of dim sum isn't helping with the limited space I have for everything that is going on inside of me.

Here are a few shots of our lunch.  Since we don't eat chicken feet, much beef or any pork, our options were limited.  But, it is about the experience, not the food, right?  I still managed to eat an entire plate of chicken wings - delicious!




On our way out we saw a gigantic and beautiful live orange fish get bagged out of a tank for someone's lunch.  It made us a little sad.  In case we are still pregnant next week, we are looking for good Sunday field trip recommendations.  Can you help us out?  We are running out of pregnant-friendly ideas.

PS - I am not sure why, but not all of your comments are getting posted - even though I can see them all on the back end.  Most are, but some are falling through the cracks, even though I have approved them.  Sorry about that.  I hope to get to the bottom of it soon.

Abby you look so beautiful. Dim sum sounds so good, makes me want to have some. Jared has never had Dim sum, i also do not eat much more than chicken breast, but the experience its always fun.

Gosh - this is where the cultural differences are going to defeat me... do they have Indians where you are? In the last week of my pregnancy with Catherine - she was 10 days overdue - I ate mountains of Indian food. In the final bit of my pregnancy with Madeleine I baked like crazy... loads of highly calorific cakes...

Miss M was born on a Sunday - that would be the best idea!

I don't think I can do anymore food field trips anyway. No more room for food. I'm all filled up with baby. The best field trip would DEFINITELY be to the Labor and Delivery floor of our hospital - agreed. I baked one really BIG batch of cookies a while back and Ted forbade me from making more. We ate like 3 dozen cookies in a week.

In case you do want another foodie Sunday, what about IHOP? x, Anna

How about a day trip to Santa Barbara? You could graze your way up State St. instead of having a full meal. And it's a nice drive.

Enjoy your Sunday field trips

Oh goodness! I didn't do a good job conveying that the randoms calling out my largeness was not at all hurtful. In fact, the opposite. Suzy and I definitely got a good laugh out of the "Hey Fatso" guy. It was actually pretty funny. The Chinatown dude too. Totally no offense taken to such silliness. I've got much bigger things to worry about that being big.

How about a bump photo shoot? I was scheduled to have one the day after M was born, so I never got them - but I think they are quite nice. If you're anything like me, you won't have many photos of this pg either :(

Terranea Resort supposedly has an amazing prenatal massage, beautiful views and great food--It's right on the coast in Palos Verdes--good for either a day trip or an overnight?
Also *Hope Springs in Palm Desert is amazing....it's adults only and a very calming, healing place. *I have other notes for you about this place, email if you want more details.
