I was fortunate enough to come to come across a great sale on carters.com and was able to pick up 27 preemie onesies for the boys for just over $50 including shipping! I'm really not a huge bargain hunter but I am thrilled with this purchase - SCORE!!
Additionally, one of the items on my summer to do list was to make some dinners for Julie, Shane, and Hayden and the shower seemed the perfect time to do this. Since I've been sucked into the Pinterest vortex all summer, I have come across a ton of make ahead and freeze dinner recipe/websites. I spent some time further poking around and even though I originally choose 6 recipes, finally settled on the following recipes to prepare -
- Creamy Chicken Casserole (Once a Month Mom)
- Aunt Sissy's Poppy Seed Chicken (Once a Month Mom)
- Raspberry Glazed Pork Chops (Once a Month Mom)
- Stephanie's Goulash/Beef Stew (The Test Kitchen of Melissa Fallis)
I ordered/bought/pick-up all of my ingredients on Thursday and Friday. With Leslie's help, made the Creamy Chicken Casserole and Stephanie's Goulash on Friday. Finished up the last two recipes on Saturday. Everything is now frozen and ready to go to the shower this afternoon. I am definitely proud of my accomplishment.
Will I do this again? In a heartbeat!
