I am cooking and baking like a crazy woman. Not necessarily because I have to, but simply because in the third trimester, food becomes the central focus of my life. I am a food lover to begin with, but there's something about the last weeks of pregnancy that make me oh so hungry!
With every baby, I have cooked "freezer food" to give me a break from cooking once the baby comes. Here are the things I have made so far to fill our hungry freezer. :)
Turkey Barbeque - I found a really good recipe for this from tasteofhome.com
Macaroni and Cheese
Ham, Cheese, and Broccoli casserole
Carrot Cake - I had some oooolllldddd carrots that needed to be used up. :)
I have some other things on my list as well. We'll see if I get to these:
Haluske (Slovak cabbage and noodles, with bacon of course)
Dijon Salmon (Salmon is Graeme's fav. food)
Twice Baked Potatoes
Bread, cornbread, etc.
Crunchies (Scottish cookie recipe from Graeme's grandma)
Waffles or pancakes
Raisin Bran muffins
The above is more of a wish list and I'm sure I won't do all of them and will switch things around. What I have been doing is cooking extra of what we are having for dinner and planning it that way, which is easy. I am always so glad I go to the trouble of this before the baby is born when I am postpartum and tired.
