So, a little while ago I decided that in order to feel fully prepared for the baby, I had to pre-make a number of meals, so that when the baby is here I can focus on the baby.

I was a little bit neurotic about it. I made a list of all the casseroles that I like, and asked others for their suggestions on what to make that will freeze well. This is what I ended up with:
3x Sheppard’s Pie

2x Chinese Noodle Casserole

2x Meatloaf

2x Lasagne

2x American Chop Suey

2x Veggie and Bacon Quiches

2x Chicken Pot Pie

2x Mexican Lasagne

Basmati Chicken

Turkey Soup

1 dozen Banana Chocolate Chip muffins

1 dozen Lemon Poppy Seed muffins

1 dozen Strawberry Banana muffins

4 dozen Hermit cookies

2 dozen Chocolate Chip Oatmeal cookies

Hmmm… now that I am looking at this all written in front of me I realize why I was soooo darn tired for a week or so there. That also explains my increase in energy in the last couple days: being done all of this!

All that is left to do now is wait for the baby. Come on baby! I don’t want to still be waiting on August 22nd (the farthest the Dr. would like to see me go before they induce me for being overdue.) Come on baby! We are ready for you!

Sometimes this planning readyness is a sign it is about to happen.

Your meals look wonderful and guaranteed once baby comes, the pictures won't be of meals:) just lovely baby.
