    Hungry Stockin' Up

    Advertisements
    So i've read that it is a good idea to have handy certain items and dishes (premade even) in the freezer for after you deliver and there is a quick meal to be had when things are haywire and you haven't slept in days. Sounds good to me. But I honestly can't think of anythingto make.

    I suppose i'm no martha stewart. Anyone have ideas or suggestions? What did you make sure you had stocked up?

    TIA!

    we had a lot of frozen pizza and those frozen pasta dinners or takeout the first month or two the babies where born. You could always cook ground beef or chicken and put it in the freezer so then its just one step you dont have to do when you cook after your baby is born.

    Maybe we're just blessed with an awesome baby because I'm makin' steaks tonight.

    We've been eating a lot of fast food only because I'm too lazy to cook, not because I can't/don't have time to.

    Make like chili that you can freeze, oh, and invest in a crockpot! Those things are awesome, and SO worth the money and there are tons and tons of "crockpot recipes"!

    got a crockpot. so that shouldn't be a problem.

    poor dh...he's been living off fast food and super simple meals since i got pregnant. I just have no desire to cook a damn thing, unless i'm craving it.

    Girl.. go to Dream Dinners. WWW.Dreamdinners.com
    You can make up your meals ahead of time, and they package it so you can freeze it. They have great food. I have gotten stuff from them several times, and have been very happy with everything.
    Also, check into Scwanns. They will deliver right to your house.

    I have been there several times. I really like it. In fact, when DH deploys, I will probably be getting stuff from there a lot, so I'd be happy to go with you. We could make it a girls night.

    i didnt stock up, i lived with 6 people who stole all the freezer/fridge space so we ate alot of fast food

    at sams they sell 3 pack of digornos pizzas for about 3 for the price of 2. we LOVE THOSE!

    but df was good at taking her once he got off work and i would go to the store to get stuff to make.. somehow my sleep schedule wasnt too bad! i hope yours isnt either!
