Have been away from MDC quite a bit as DS and I have been sick the past two weeks!) Relied quite a bit on convenience foods and takeout to get us through GASP!!!
Now I'm starting to get freezer stocked for impending arrival of our new baby on May 25th. So far I've got 8x8 pans of homemade chicken pot pie, white lasagna, and a meatloaf in freezer. Doing a shepard's pie tonight. Anytime I cook between now and when I go into labor, I'm freezing half of it. Also going to bake some banana bread and oatmeal cookies, and freeze those.
However I'm afraid we will be spending quite a bit on food this month. I want a stocked pantry and fridge for when the baby comes....don't want to have to worry about running out of things or having to shop a lot post-partum! But I'll be reading this thread for ideas, since I've also spent a lot of money stocking up on OTHER things---i.e. toilet paper, Lansinoh, breastpads, witch hazel pads, new cloth diaper covers, etc. all the various and sundry items that you find you need when the baby arrives!
