Baby S2 Update – Week 36 & Nesting

This is it…the final countdown…4 weeks to go for me and go time for my sister!
We both feel great and are getting anxious to meet the little ones squirming around inside us.

39 weeks & 35 weeks

And with the countdown….let the nesting begin!  On Sunday Kelli and I prepared 9 separate meals.  5 crockpot and 4 pans.  All will be frozen, so while we are busy with babies we have healthy and convenient meals.  The total cost comes to about $2.25 per serving and took 3.5 hours to prepare (not counting grocery shopping time).  Trust me….all is worth it! 

Start with cutting and prepping all veggies and set aside. Then move on to meat so there is no cross contamination. 

we’re done and dinner is ready for days to come!
Recipes for all the meals:
Meal 1-5
Frozen Crock Pot Meals – we made three of these recipes and combined into 5 meals
Meal 6
Turkey Lasagna
Meal 7
Chicken Enchiladas
Meal 8
Chicken Pot Pie
Meal 9
Veggie Mac & Cheese

Zucchini Bread



For those of you who have a garden…have you started your stock pile of zucchini? Did you let some grow too big and not quite sure what to do with it all? Look no further…

Zucchini Bread

I love this recipe and so does everyone else I share it with.

Helpful hint: grate zucchini and freeze in Ziploc bags so you can make this bread all year long!

Ingredients:

2 (up to 2 .5) cups zucchini, grated, juices NOT removed (1 large zucchini or 2 small)

1 cup canola oil or half unsweetened applesauce/half oil

3 eggs, beaten

2 teaspoons Watkins vanilla extract

1 1/4 cups sugar or organic evaporated cane juice, Stevia, OR you could try honey?!?

1 1/2 cups unbleached all-purpose flour + 1 1/2 cups white whole wheat flour if you can find OR regular whole wheat flour (Sift flour together with the baking powder/soda/salt/spices for a lighter texture.)

1/2 teaspoon baking powder

1 teaspoon baking soda

3/4 teaspoon salt

3 teaspoons cinnamon

1/8 teaspoon nutmeg

Instructions:

Combine zucchini, oil, eggs and vanilla. Stir in sugar. Stir in flour with baking powder, baking soda, salt, cinnamon and nutmeg until combined. This is easier when done in batches. If the batter looks thick, don’t panic! Place batter into two loaf pans that have been sprayed with cooking spray, and bake for 1 hour at 350 degrees. Enjoy!
