Somewhere around five weeks are remaining until the arrival of Baby G. It’s getting harder and harder for me to complete tasks. That means I should probably start working on my last minute preparations now, right?
I’m currently in the middle of a deep spring cleaning/decluttering of my house. This ended up being a lot more intense than I thought it would be. I’m not sure if I’ll get it all done, but I’m going to attempt to keep plugging along as much as possible.
Another project on my list is making freezer meals. I know I’m not going to have a lot of time and motivation to cook once G arrives. Since the hubster can burn water (unless it’s cooked on the grill…), I wanted to have a lot of options in my freezer. I planned to have a huge cooking day, but have instead decided to do a little every day. I’m going to double or triple every meal I’m making this week. That sounds a lot more do-able than cooking 15 meals in a day, right?
For example, instead of making only one tray of enchiladas for Cinco De Mayo tonight, I’m going to make 3. Two of them will be frozen. Then I’ll just have to reheat them in the oven when I need a quick meal. I’m excited!
Have any of you made freezer meals like this? Do you have any tips or favorite recipes you’d like to share? I’m always happy to learn from some people who have been there, done that.
I’ll stop rambling and get to the list now.
- Cheesy Vegetarian Rice
- Chicken, Bacon, Alfredo Lasagna
- Corned Beef Soup
- Spaghetti and Meatballs
- Chicken and White Bean Enchiladas
- Cheesy Tuna Mac
- Shepherd’s Pie
Yes, I have that lasagna on my menu plan again. I had a major case of preggo brain last week while menu planning and totally forgot I needed Ricotta and Mozzarella to make it. Oops. So I just had alfredo noodles with chicken and am making the lasagna this week.
I have a lot to say today, apparently. Daniel officially started first shift today after 10 years of overnights. I’m not used to having my days to myself! Anyway…
What’s on your menu this week??
