Well, the "nesting" has been in full force since about week 15, (although admittedly, I'm not too good at it, seeing as how I'm exhausted, live with three boys, and have a backlog of about five years to clean up after...) Wait. That's how long I've been married to Kyler. Coincidence? Hmmm.....nevermind.
So, having given up on the perpetual cleaning, I've moved on to food prep. Occasionally, I do have moments of intense productivity, throwing together several meals that I can freeze for later. I know. I amaze myself. Sometimes I dream about being organized and efficient enough to plan and prepare a whole week's worth of meals ahead of time. And then I remember that I have two little boys under three who habitually mark their territory, puke all over car seats, flip out of cribs, and bathe in Dr. Pepper. That's usually sufficient to quell those little fits of dreaming.
But now that I'm about to have another of those darling toilet lickers, and judging by how utterly exhausted I'm beginning to get now, before the nursing-through-the-night baby arrives, I thought maybe it would be wise to start preparing what I can so my family can, you know, EAT.
I have a few standbys already prepared and in the freezer: Shepherd's pie, homemade lasagna, tortilla soup, taco casserole, etc. But, I am definitely looking for more quick and delicious ideas to fill up our freezer.
May I ask for your help?
Please send me your standby recipes! We really aren't too picky. Well, I guess that's not entirely true. Kyler will eat anything (he's kinda like Mikey - remember those LIFE cereal commercials?) Anyway. I'm not too into condiments like sour cream, mustard, mayo, etc. And we also don't have any wine around, so recipes with wine, sherry, etc. won't work (call me crazy, but I've noticed a lot in the crock pot recipe book I have include them). Speaking of which, I'm all about using our Crock Pot too, so recipes that are only a matter of throwing several ingredients in a pot are fantastic!
