With baby time fast approaching and coinciding directly with Fit Boy’s emergence into the world of preschool, I have decided that even though I have no desire to nest, I need to get my butt nesting.
Even though my first two babies came decidedly late (10 days and 13 days to be exact), I have never experienced the urge to nest. I don’t see this pregnancy being much different.
Either way, I need to get a move on and the biggest task I’ve set for myself is meal prep. We have a small freezer in the basement that’s been unplugged for the last year or so that I will be plugging in and filling with meals for us to have in the weeks after baby comes. The idea is that I’ll have enough in the freezer that we will have 2-3 meals taken care of per week for at least a month. It will mean a lot of batch cooking and the possibility that no one in my house will want to see a soup, casserole or bean dip ever again but that’s the price we have to pay
I did a bit of meal prep previously but admittedly, I didn’t do quite as much as I should have. The problem for me is that I don’t know what freezes well and what doesn’t. This will definitely be an experiment in cuisine. I have lofty visions of a freezer packed full of well-organized, tasty, (read: not-burnt) food. I’m fairly confident reality will look a bit differently.
