Throughout my pregnancy, I haven’t had much of any crazy cravings, but there were some things I especially loved like Special K Red Berries. I had this for about 2 weeks straight for breakfast and lunch! Peanut butter, soups, and desserts have also topped the list. Since we don’t have much family and friends in the area, I plan on freezing a few meals ahead of time so we don’t end up starving or ordering in takeout too much. Some recipes on my list include:
- Poblano Corn Lasagna Squares
- Chicken Enchilada Casserole Squares
- Baked Ziti Squares
- White Bean & Ham Shank Cups
- Macaroni & Cheese Wedges
Ricardo can then just steam veggies or make a side salad to go with these easy meals. We cook dinner every night, but I imagine that won’t be the case when baby arrives so frozen entrees should offset the nights where I’m unable to cook. I had some extra ham shanks left over from a split pea soup the other week so I decided to try a white bean soup. Someone suggested freezing soups in silicone muffin pans on pinterest and I just think it’s the most genius idea ever! I wrapped them all up individually and placed them inside a large ziploc bag. Reheating should be fairly simple and with a dash of tabasco, we’ve got yummy soup in no time! If you have any delicious freeze ahead recipes, please send them my way. I’d love to try them out!
