Preparing for Baby…The Freezer Stash

Another way that I’ve been trying to prepare for the new baby is by stocking up my freezer with finished or almost-done meals. We will no doubt be the recipients of meals from church friends and family, but every new mom can tell you that there’s a time when the meals run out and you’re still too tired to think about what’s for dinner.

Recently, when I make my grocery list, I try to find something that I can double and freeze, and then make sure to buy enough to make two. So far I have frozen:

a couple batches of soup
one lasagna
quite a few cups of cooked brown rice
pork chops with marinade
chicken pieces with marinade

The pre-marinated meat isn’t done, obviously, but all I will have to do in my lack-of-sleep coma is remember to take it out of the freezer. Then it will marinate as it’s thawing.

    Do you have anyone coming to help you out with the kids when the baby first arrives? I’m putting my mom on the task of cooking and freezing, although I suppose it wouldn’t hurt to do a little myself…
