Barefoot, Still Pregnant, and In the Kitchen...

....wearing nothing but an apron.

Okay, well, that part may not be true. But, you know, it isn't a bad idea! It is about a million freakin' degrees in here! (Then again, I feel like it is a million degrees most anywhere in any level of clothing these days...)

Sparky's due date has come and gone and we still do not have our little guy with us. He's totally content just hanging around in utero with no rush to come out here into this big, bright, scary world.

I am no longer working. I was sure that I would have a baby by now, so I arranged to have last Friday to be my last day of work. Since I have no work and no baby, I had to find something to keep myself busy. Call it nesting. I went to the store this morning and have spent all afternoon preparing some dishes that I can freeze and we can cook up once the baby gets here. I finished four of the six dishes. I had to take a break for a while and will finish the last couple either tonight or tomorrow morning.

What's on the menu?
  1. Chicken Caesar Tetrazzini
  2. Tuna Noodle Casserole
  3. Zucchini and Chicken Pasta Bake
  4. Meatloaf
  5. Baked Cavatelli
  6. Chicken Normandy Style

Paula and I went to the local "Let's Dish" place a couple weeks ago, so I am merely supplementing what we've already got stocked up in the freezer. Let's Dish, in case you haven't heard of it, is one of those places that you go and prepare a bunch of meals that you can freeze and then easily defrost and cook at home. It was a great experience! For me and Dave, the cost was reasonable and the best part was that everything is there ready for you to assemble and there is no clean-up! Can't beat that!

Dave mentioned that I must really mistrust his cooking to go to these lengths...

We have Let's Dish here and another chain called Social Suppers. I think they have a great concept and I'd probably look into it if I didn't like cooking so much.

BTW, you look wonderful at 9 months plus!

No comment back at ya. See if I make you my world famous bacon-wrapped scallops or grilled lobster anytime soon...

Can I get some of that meatloaf?

Eve said...

Hum, no Sparky...he is obviously a guy with his own ideas!

I saw an blip on Let's Dish....I want one of those here....I am a horrible cook, just horrible.

I need a Let's Dish here, seriously. I don't mind cooking, but HATE shopping, & always forget something. ;-)

Like 'Rita said, you look AWESOME for 'any day now'...MUCH LUCK to you, Dave & Sparky!

So, I'm off to check out this Let's Dish thing. I'm more excited about this than the baby!

That's not true. But it's close.

Today's the Day! If he won't come out for zucchini pasta bake, tell him not to come out at all. No, that would be uncomfortable, wouldn't it?
Best of luck from the Mill Girls!
