Busy Day

Today was a productive day. Sort of. Babies were fed. Babies were played with. Babies were fed. Laundry was folded (not by me...Seth gets the credit for that). Babies were fed. Lots of food was cooked. Babies were fed. Socializing was done. Babies were fed...


I made meals for four families today... two families in my community had babies in the last two weeks, another friend of mine had triplets at the end of January, and beckyfeld just got out of the hospital, so I made meals for each of them. I figured it was better to do them all in one day, than to spread them to four separate days. I was right. I made:
  • Sweet and Sour Meatballs
  • White Rice
  • Roasted Butternut Squash
  • Roasted Asparagus
  • Marinated Tomatoes
  • Brownies

It worked out really nicely, though I didn't plan well enough to have meatballs left over for us! Whoops. (Seth did get to eat some meatballs last night and Julian got to eat a few meatballs for lunch, so it's not like they didn't get any benefit!)

Seth ran around doing errands for me, delivering meals, picking up stuff at BJs, folding laundry, helping babies, etc. I spent the day cooking, packing up food, feeding babies, and I even got to spend time with Eleanor who came over to see the babies for a bit. I must say it will be a while before I deal with this much cooking again, but it was nice to be in the kitchen for a bit again. It had been too long.

Now I'm off to take a nap before the next feeding... I hate daylight savings time...it screws up everything!
