There may be room for a placenta in that huge freezer as well. wink1.gif

My sister ate her placenta raw and fresh. Am I weird that this does not appeal to me AT ALL?

Mary -  I could never do that.

I couldn't eat mine without encapsulating unless I was literally bleeding out and had no other option. ;)

I'm not interested in eating mine either. My sister froze hers in the deep freeze for planting under the base of a tree in their yard at the right time of year.

Not eating mine either. Not opposed to it, just not interested. I love the idea of planting it under a special tree though!

I like how this thread topic has been derailed! I plan on paying for placenta encapsulation for the first time after this babe is born. After DD was born, I had a nightmare first couple of weeks. I felt like I had no enjoyment in life that lasted 2-3 weeks postpartum. The intensity was very scary to me. So I'm hoping that the natural boost of hormones will help keep me on track this time.

I have heard it said that if you bury your placenta in the yard, that means you don't want any more children. Thoughts? Also enjoying thread derailment, coffeebean! wink1.gif

I hadn't heard that, but at the point I buried my son's placenta, I thought I didn't want any more.  Does that count?  lol...

 

Actually, I had heard the saying that your child will always come home or know where home is or something like that...

This is what I've heard too. I think it might be a belief in some parts of Africa?

 

Back to freezer cooking, I actually made dinner last night, which is a major improvement... I've been having such a hard time with food lately. I'm hungry, but I can't handle cooking (not to mention the inability to figure out what to make). I decided to read some of the posts in the thread What are You Having for Dinner, which really inspired me.

Anyway, got to get some food in the freezer or my family will live on take out after baby comes.

Well, no more homemade food, but I just made a major trip to Trader Joe's and bought 2 carts full of food. Lots of their frozen dishes, but also a ton of interesting frozen veggies to use easily postpartum. They had frozen artichoke hearts, can't wait to try those out!

I love Trader Joe's frozen section (along with their other sections) and they are a real part of my post partum plan.

 

I love their just thaw and eat edamame

My freezer is now full! I've been force-feeding my family spring rolls, meat party pies, and old sorbet in an effort to clear out space, and now it's full of goodness. I've got:

Pesto and veg pasta sauce (for a mozzarella portabello mushroom side dish) x4 meals
Chicken, bean, rice, & cheese burritos x3 meals
Gozleme x1 meal
Taco beef x2 meals
Chicken pies x1 meal
Meatballs and pasta sauce x1 meal
Frozen crumbed fish (for the kids) x 12 pieces
Blueberry, oat, banana muffins x20

I think we stil have space for bean burgers, so I'll whip up 8 of those today.
I wanted to have a loaf of banana bread in there, but I just don't think there's space. We'll see if I can work some Tetris magic and make that happen. wink1.gif

So what kind of gf tortillas do you ladies use? We made tons of burritos ahead for the last baby, but have been gf for about 3 years. Corn is what we use fresh but that doesn't seem like it would freeze well.

I froze corn tortillas when making enchiladas and they came out great. Of course, they were covered in sauce, so I can't speak to success with "undressed" burritos. Don't know why they wouldn't freeze well though.

Absolutely, but they make terrible burritos
