I've started stocking up on some of our essentials! Some are non-food items, like soap. Others times I'll buy enough meat to make double-like burgers-and then freeze half. I've also frozen some bread dough, so we can still have home made bread. I'm hoping that my grocery shopping will be minimal after Adara is first born-then it will be easy for me, or anyone picking up a few things for me. I'm hoping to fill my freezer up before Adara is born! That shouldn't be too difficult, considering it's already pretty full (it's a top freezer and isn't very big).
I've read that it's good to freeze meals, but so many of them are casseroles that have some kind of dairy involved. Dairy makes us feel sick, so I'm trying to just buy staples for our simple meals. Does anyone have good freezer/simple meals that don't have any dairy in them? What worked best for making meals with a new baby in the house?
