A list of some meals for after the baby comes

I know I won’t have the mental capacity to put together a meal plan for a few weeks after our baby is born, so I thought I’d make a list of some really simple, quick meals that will do the trick. Nothing fancy here. This is a link to a Google Doc that will update as I make changes to it.

I haven’t used my slow-cooker much lately, but that’s about to change. I’m newly inspired by some recipes found on A Year of Slow Cooking and we’ll sample a few.

I didn’t do a ton of meals for the freezer, but I’m ok with that. There’s a few in there to get us started, and I can use the rest of my freezer space for side veggies, reasonably healthy convenience foods, fruit for smoothies, whatever.

My intentions are to go through that list and have plenty of the non-perishable ingredients on hand. Then, my grocery list for that particular week will be shorter and hopefully easier for me or my husband to get the stuff.

What are some of your favorite quick, I-really-don’t-have-time-to-cook-but-I-need-something-good, meals?

  1. Pre-made pierogis. I know, it hardly qualifies as a “meal”, but you can get a box of 12 for a few bucks, they cook quickly, and then add butter and garlic salt and you have a tasty quick convenient filling meal. Also it can be toddler friendly, depending on your toddler. :)

  2. I like to eat healthy don’t really like to cook so all of my meals are quick and easy. Homemade pizza is great as long as you have the dough ready. Just pour some sauce, sprinkle some toppings and add the cheese and bake. A simple side salad rounds out the meal.

Hey! I'm Kacie, wife to Shane and mother to Jonathan (7), Vivienne (5) and Amelia (2) . I write about my family's finance: how we save money, improve our spending, and plan for the future.

I hope I can inspire and encourage you to improve your situation. See disclosure.

I'm adopting a much slower-paced posting schedule, and treating this as a hobby blog now.
