In a perfect world my favourite food would just arrive on my table every night without me having to lift a finger. This is especially desirable towards the end of pregnancy and in the early days of new baby-ness.
Except it isn’t going to happen.
We can’t even save up and opt in for a week or two of home delivered take out – no one delivers to us out here in the paddocks.
I know I have some wonderful friends and family who will help out with the magic food thing, but they all have their own families to feed. Plus, I suddenly find myself with two picky eaters which can make things even trickier.
I am not complaining really. Up until recently all my kids have eaten pretty much everything – bar one or two dislikes. And for all the girl’s current pickiness they still eat very well. It’s just that the things they have stopped eating are all the things I would have cooked in big batches and frozen for easy pre and post baby meals.
For example – My kids don’t eat spaghetti bolognaise.
I know, pick yourself up floor, it’s true. The most kid friendly, and freezer friendly meal of all time is one thing that all three of them turn their noses up at. Life was not meant to be easy hey.
So here I am trying to compile a list of meals that the majority of us Pickles will eat, and that I can cook in advance and freeze and I’m struggling. So far my list has three things on it…
Chilli (yes they will eat a mild chilli con carne but not spag bol – go figure)
Meat and vegie pot pies – figure I can cook up the filling to freeze and wack them in the pots with a circle of pastry on the night.
Anyone care to help out with some suggestions?
