Eight weeks until d-day. My due date, that is. The first time around, I was surprised by how little cooking I was able to do. Babies somehow have an innate ability to know a) when you’re especially tired, b) when you are hungry, and c) when it is dinner time. It never fails that “the witching hour” is exactly when you need to be cooking.
Thank God my mother stayed with us for a couple of weeks when Clara was born. While I am hopeful that Nancy will be a calm little girl who only wants to sit on the counter and watch me cook, I am not going to hold my breath. I will not be caught unaware this time. Each week for the next eight weeks I am going to double a dinner and freeze it for after the baby is born. I am looking for suggestions from all of you who read my blog (I know that someone besides my mother, mother-in-law, and sister read this)… yes, that means you.
What are your favorite make and freeze meals? Please comment and post recipes if possible!
In the next few days I will make a freezer food plan and each week I will update with a photo of the pre-frozen dish all made. Therefore, you too will have recipes and ideas for your freezer. Please play this game with me!! 🙂
