Day 62: Nesting

So, I've had this urge to totally stockpile our house with food for the last couple months. And it keeps getting worse. I finally realized, this is my "nesting" this time around. Normally, I go crazy cleaning. This time, I'm creating a food bank.

And tonight I made yet another double meal. As in, I cooked a batch for us to eat tonight and another that went straight into the freezer. One less meal I will have to figure out how to make while juggling a newborn and and two other kids.

We bought the chest freezer back in January for this purpose. But it stayed relatively empty for a while. Since it's easier to keep a full freezer cold than an empty one, HH began filling it with old milk jugs filled with water. I figured this wasn't to terrible since it was sort of like storing water as well.

But tonight when I placed the newly made meal in the freezer, I had to pull a milk jug out in order to fit it. And for some reason, that was a Joyful Moment. The freezer is pretty full with actual food and I might somehow survive those first few months postpartum.

Wishing you all Joyful Moments of becoming a hoarder!
