Cook Ahead –
Kiss Me Later!
So the baby's almost here and you’ve done all of the hard stuff!
You’ve made up the baby’s room, figured out the perfect
name, memorialized your belly with a
professional photo shoot, figured out the pros and cons of
cloth vs. disposable diapers … what are you missing?
Nancy Klein, super-mom of three who runs her Kid Wrangling
Business from her mini-van gives us her #1 advice for all “big
bellies” – make sure to cook ahead!
As Nancy explains, before you know it, it’s 8pm and you haven’t
even thought about dinner, let alone eaten yet.
The secret antidote – take something out of your freezer that
you’ve cooked ahead of time. Not just the teriyaki chicken
but the whole meal, rice and veggies included.
We found Reynolds Pot Lux as an affordable disposable cookware
that lets you bake, microwave, serve, freeze, or refrigerate –
all in the same container. Reynolds Pot Lux cookware is safe
for use in both conventional ovens up to 400° F and in microwave
ovens, and its attractive porcelain-like appearance and
decorative detail complement any table.
Nancy tells us that we should make batches of food ahead of time
and freeze single portions for later.
It’s a healthy and cost-effective alternative to the restaurant
delivery and you’ll have more quiet time for yourself…maybe now
you can sneak away and take that relaxing bath you’ve been
(comes in several sizes)
