With our little Piglet due to arrive in less than 7 weeks (eek!) I’ve been busy trying to prepare our home for sleepless nights. One big piece of advice I was given was to stock up the freezer and pantry with quick and easy meals. I’ve been looking for crock pot recipes that I can cook up and then freeze for after the baby is born. I’ve also been looking for pasta recipes that are simple to make, and stocking up the pantry with non-perishables so I’m not making delirious trips to the grocery store on only two hours of sleep.
I was able to find this article on the Parenting Squad with some easy recipes that I hope to start cooking up. Now if only I could get a little bit of energy to get the cooking and stocking up done. Otherwise we might just be stuck ordering takeout for the first 6 weeks, and that is not going to be good for my waistline!
For all the been there done that moms, did you make ahead any meals before you went into labor? If so please share recipes and what worked for you. Also, please feel free to share any other preparation advice you have, or things you wish you’d done before the big day. And don’t say sleep, because I’m not a sleep camel. I cannot save up sleep! Though I am enjoying the rest while I’m able to. 😉
