The project all together took me a couple hours. If only I could always spend my free time so industriously!
I do have a sneaky inkling that 'free time' is about to become something of the past. So in a fit of panic I signed up to do "Let's Dish"--a storefront where you go whip together meals in a thousand ziploc baggies and stuff your freezer when you get home. I made 12 meals (the maximum they allow) and at 6 servings per meal, I am hoping that will keep us pretty much fed through maternity leave. (And to the woman who was next to me, I am so sorry that your husband won't eat leftovers. My husband is not so picky and is usually just grateful I am not serving Golden Grahams while apologizing that we are out of milk ("They're just fine with water, really!"). I suggest a gradual lowering of standards.) I was exhausted after 2 hours of Let's Dishing, which I did after a particularly tough day. But I now have these meals tucked away for Impending Baby Chaos:
- California Chicken
- Chicken Marsala
- Chicken Pad Thai
- Crispy Chicken with Parmesan Potato Chips
- Fish Tacos with Corn Salsa
- Spiced Shrimp with Rice Pilaf
- Greek Style Beef Wraps
- Wine Country Meatloaf with Garlic Mashed Potatoes
- Asian Lettuce Wraps with Ginger Sauce
- Pork Chops with Three Cheese Potatoes
- Tortellini with White Wine Primavera
- and Italian Sausage Lasagna
Here is Bella, cracking me up as always:
Bella: I am holding up a sign.
Me: A sign?
Bella: It says "No Kissing."
Me: Oh. *SPLBBBPPS RASPBERRY SPLBPBPBPSBPBS*
Bella: New sign. It says "No Raspberries."
Me: Where did you get that sign?!
