I am 38 weeks pregnant. The doctor told us Baby Dempsey Boy (this is what Tessa calls him) is making progress and should make his debut sometime soon! With that news, I promptly went home and freaked out. I could not sleep because I was thinking too much about all the things I still had to do. So, I was up at 3:30 finishing my report cards to turn into my principal. Looking at recipes to plan the week's meals is just what I need. It calms me.
The blog hasn't been updated in a while. Preparing for baby boy has been consuming my life. My sis-in-law threw me a shower last weekend. It was a Dinners and Diapers shower. It was an awesome idea! We pretty much have everything we need for baby, so people brought dinners that were easy to freeze and diapers! So fun! Our freezer is so well stocked now. It hasn't been this full since before we lost power during the hurricane over the summer. And yesterday, my 2nd graders and their families threw me a "surprise" baby shower complete with cake and gift cards. Those 7 and 8 year olds were so pleased with themselves. I can't wait to be on maternity leave with my Tessa and Dempsey, but those 21 little people become my babies when I am at work and I will miss them! We are so blessed by the people in our lives.
I'm still planning meals for the week even though I have no idea what's in store. I'm going to TRY to make the following three recipes: Parmesan Chicken, Baked Spaghetti, and Roast Beef sandwiches.
You can never have enough chicken recipes. Chicken is such a staple in our house. We make it at least once a week. I got this recipe off of epicurious.com
