I still struggle with knowing whether or not I'm "nesting." It might have started when I was painting every room in the house... but that was just finishing a project from before I was even pregnant. Or it could have been the day of winterizing the windows, but we do that every year. The next "nesting" thing that I'm doing isn't really nesting either.
So Ben and I receive veggies every other week from this awesome program called Boston Organics. We get awesome food that we love to eat. But sometimes (especially when pregnant) I feel lazy about the foods and don't get enough of them fixed up and they go bad in our fridge before we can get to it all. Well this week, I've been making a STRONG effort to use up the veggies!
Simultaneously, though, I've been thinking about some of the "Once A Month Cooking" I've read about online and also thinking about mommy-blogs who talk about how hard it is to get the motivation to cook in the first couple weeks home from the hospital after giving birth. Thus, I'm trying to kill two birds with one stone and cook up those veggies in ways we'll appreciate and then freeze the results for consumption in April and May!
Take a look at my results thus far:
I'd like to start working on some other items besides soups too-- maybe some pre-seasoned meats that could just be dethawed and cooked by Ben or even some other bread products. All of the Once a Month Cooking websites talk about premaking and defrosting pancakes and the like... but I'm worried they just won't turn out.
Anyone have personal experience or advice for me?
