5 delicious meals to cook now and stash in the freezer before baby arrives
Until you have lived through the first couple of weeks at home with a brand new baby, you really have no idea just how impossible it will seem to get anything done.
Even taking a shower will suddenly seem like such a big task you'll find yourself wondering how the heck you are going to make it happen (and secretly wonder if it can just wait until tomorrow. Again)
And this lack of time/free hands to cook is exactly why these freezer meals are going to be your lifeline ones baby arrives. Trust me – cook these now, stick in the freezer, and voila; you'll have the perfect meal ready to go on those post-baby evenings when you are simply too wrecked to cook, or have a baby attached to your boobs 24/7.
Your future self will thank you.
