To Do List

I had a doctor’s appointment today and realized after talking to her that I’m getting down to the wire. Thirteen weeks until baby number 4 makes his or her appearance! I have so much to do….

Cooking: I want to cook some things ahead so that we have meals or parts of meals ready to go. I know some friends and church folks are planning to bring in some meals just after the baby comes but I want to have some things for that point about six weeks in when we’ve just had a long day or a bad night and being able to that something and heat it up would be wonderful. I’m planning to cook and freeze a turkey and also some pasta sauce…any other ideas?

Sewing:I’m still working on some dresses for the “ever more long-legged” Su! I like her to start the summer with six dresses or so and I think I have 1.5 dresses made so I need to get on this.

Garden: Yup, spring is coming and I have some planting to do. Early May is actually a good time for a baby since I’ll have planted the early stuff and can wait until the end of the month to do the later stuff.

Child Training: I want to teach W to walk in parking lots and stores while holding F or Su’s hand instead of mine. He does really well walking with me but that may not always work. Plus I need him to be OK with one of them buckling and unbuckling his seatbelt, washing his face etc. I don’t expect them to need to do this often but right now he pitches a fit when they try, so I need to work on this area…

I think that’s all I have but I’m sure something else will crop up…

    On the cooking front, here are some ready to eat meals that freeze well. While they’re somewhat meat centric, you can obviously easily swap that out:

    Meatballs (both Italian & Swedish)
    Rouladen (prepped but not cooked)
    Stock in 16 oz portions for soup (vegetable, fish, beef, chicken, turkey, ham, tomato)
    Potatoes Au Gratin
    Shredded Chicken/Pork/Beef portioned into servings

    Let me know and I’m happy to contribute!
