Before I get to the video, I need to clear the air. For those of you who read (never home)maker, you likely noticed our recipe post yesterday: Baked Flatbread with Sweet Onions, Collards, and Brie. Ever since the recipe went live, we've been getting comments and emails concerned about pregnancy and soft cheeses.
I made a note in the post that brie is totally, completely safe if it's pasteurized, but -- yikes! -- many people didn't read that note. Isn't that great, though? Brie is SAFE! And you don't just have to believe my word . . . here's excerpt from a US News & World Report article on pregnancy myths:
Soft Cheese: Many women have heard that soft cheeses such as goat cheese and brie can be sources of a dangerous microbe called Listeria. But a soft cheese is safe to eat as long as it has been pasteurized, according to the FDA. And although unpasteurized dairy products have surged in popularity recently, most cheeses produced in the United States, including domestic brie, are still pasteurized. Listeria can also grow in packaged lunch meats and hot dogs, so experts recommend that women avoid those foods—or heat them until they're steaming.
Alright, enough stalling. Here's the 16/17 week video post. And if you'd like to read stuff I left out, check out yesterday's 17 Weeks post, complete with up-to-date belly shots (not THOSE kinds of belly shots!)!
