Non-baby entry

Well, mostly non-baby. There are no baby pictures. She's doing well, but still not on a schedule which means we're not on a schedule. Yesterday, I finally got out of bed around 11:30 after being on 5-7 a.m. duty and also being awake from 2-3 a.m. in anticipation of Marissa being awake. Even when she sleeps we don't get sleep! Then, this morning, I was up at 8 as LL took baby duty. So it's still a little bit crazy around here.

For dinner, we had no idea what to eat after having some fish, then steak and then pork chops over the last few days. So tonight I gave LL a choice of fish or burgers and she chose burgers. I decided to up the ante a bit on them though and made blue cheese stuffed burgers with an egg on top. If I had bacon and some bbq sauce, it would have been just like Kuma's Kitchen! Here's how it went down:

First, make thinner patties than normal and put some blue cheese in the middle. It's probably BEST to NOT put it on both patties as I've done here as you have to put the patties together without spilling the cheese. Not easy. 

Anyway, you put the patties together and pinch the sides together all the way around. 

After broiling the burgers for 7 mins on one side, flip them and broil for another 7 on the other side. After you flip them, you can start frying the eggs, which you want over-easy. Having them a bit runny is good for this meal!

And here's the finished product with a side of sweet potato fries!

Looking good!!  And they were!!

omg, those do look good! Your woman needs good cooking to keep up with that baby.

Don't worry, this period of no sleep at all will fly by. Usually you're so sleep deprived you forget how bad it is in a couple years anyways! And you may be one of the lucky ones and Marissa may settle quickly into a routine. Don't worry if it takes months though. We all hope it will be fast but more common is that it takes 6+ mo before there is even the semblance of a full night of sleep.

I'll forgive you for the lack of baby pictures since you posted a good recipe!

(Seriously... hope some sort of schedule is formed soon. I know how miserable it is to be without sleep.)
