During the first three month after I gave birth to both Porgie and Izzy, John and I were completely unable to cook dinner. I was tired and stressed and overwhelmed, so I didn't even really consider cooking. I eagerly gave that responsibility over to John. Of course, he was tired and stress and overwhelmed too, so we just ended up eating out ALL THE TIME. That my friends, is a very expensive habit.
With this baby, I would prefer not to throw money away on fast food every single night. So, I am going to attempt to prepare a few weeks worth of meals and freeze them. I have some dishes in mind, but I am not sure if they all freeze well (like the mac n' cheese). If you have any advice or suggestions, I would love to hear them. Here is my list of meals so far...
Cincinnati style chili (x2)
Marconi and cheese
Pizza dough (x2)
If I can successfully make all of these meals before the big day, we should have at least two weeks worth of meals. By that point the baby will be about a month old (because John will be home to cook during the first 2 weeks). Then (hopefully) I'll be able to resume my normal cooking duties without too much fuss. I also want to have at least 6 loaves of bread baked and in the freezer.
Wish me luck. I have lots to do before the big day!
