For the little one

My sister is expecting her 1st born; the first little one to enter my life and I couldn’t be happier.

We decided it would be fun to make freezable dinners for the days when the baby demands more time than thawing and sautéing can accommodate.

Here’s what went down…

Early in the day I assembled Strawberry crumbles.

A Strawberry and Thyme jam followed to be stored away.

Re-constituted and jarred Sun dried Tomatoes.

We froze seven portions of fresh Spinach.

Fried Tortillas!

Assembled 8 personal portioned Eggplant Parmesan’s. No pics, but click here for remembrance.

And baked Chicken Involtini’s / Cordon Bleu’s – one with Sundried Tomato, Basil and Mozzarella, the other five with Prosciutto and Provolone.

No day is complete without a culinary bookend. Steak with the perfume of Rosemary, grilled Corn and Creamed Spinach rewarded us for a day’s worth of cooking.

Soon the little one will be greeted by the aromas of the world. I have done my small part to allow my sister’s family the joy, without hassle, of home cooked meals.

Next up, baby food!!!

Well, my freezer is ready (actually overflowing) for baby's arrival, mommy and daddy are ready for baby, uncle michael's ready for baby, so where's baby? Still too comfy inside mommy... I don't know how much longer we can resist dipping into our stash of frozen food, but I'm already looking forward to the next round of cooking with the new uncle - the weekend was a blast! Thank you a million times over!
