The past few days I have been trying really hard to get ahead on some cooking. Now that we are settled into the house and I have a deep freezer it is time to fill it up! I made some Poor Man’s Steak for dinner yesterday and made double so that I could put one meal in the freezer. I also got a good deal on bananas the other day so I sliced them up and put them in the freezer. Today I am making meat balls and meat loaf to put in the freezer. I also have a whole chicken in the crock pot since last night. I am using it for dinner and then putting the rest in the freezer. I haven’t completely figured out what I am going to make with it for dinner. Probably just something quick and easy.
It feels great to be getting some meals in the freezer. I really hope to have lots of meals stocked up so that way dinner will be on hand after I have the baby. We don’t have much in the way of family living close to help out with things like that. I know that I will be too tired to cook much so I figure planning ahead will be the best way to continue to care for my family after things get turned upside down. I wish I would have been able to plan ahead for my first trimester because poor Blake had to fend for himself since I was so sick.
