OAMC: Day Three

Today was fairly mellow since I had a dr’s appt in the morning and swim lessons/playday in the afternoon. I tried not to sweat it, both in and out of the kitchen.

But, I did accomplish a few things for my OAMC bash:

* three lasagnas with meat, cheese, and spinach are in the freezer. (Shh…don’t tell the kids it’s spinach. I also put fresh basil in there, so I can say it’s herbs.)
* 90 meatballs mixed, formed, and baked
* 12 pounds of chicken baked and ready to be made into 9 dinners tomorrow morning.

Time invested: about 2.5 hours

PS. Wish that skinny bod in the picture was mine. But, lo, it’s not. While I’ve only gained 18 pounds, baby is measuring 35 cm, 2 cm ahead of schedule. Another Amazon FishBaby in the making. (The others were 9#2, 8#11, 9#11, 9#5, and 9#4.)

    God bless you with those “amazon” babes! Love your blog.

  2. FishMama says:

    Thanks for your encouragement, Bridget.

  3. Sorry if you’ve already posted this already, but can you share your menu? I’m curious to know what you are making.

    P.S. This series has really peaked my interest in doing oamc and I gotta tell you, that has not happened before. 🙂

    Wow big babies, those are the best kind 🙂 One of mine was a nine pounder too.

    You are doing an amazing job of getting all that cooking done, very impressive!

    Wow, I thought 8 lbs 2 oz was big with my firstborn…yikes, 9+! You have to be supermom to do all that you do AND blog so well. Perhaps you should start a series (after this one) in which you tell all your supermom secrets to getting it done and still being sane at the end of the day! 🙂

    By the way, I did have one completely unrelated question for you. How long have you been freelancing? And, without disclosing actual numbers, is it profitable? How much time do you devote to writing for money?

    OK, I guess that was three questions, not just one. 🙂

  6. FishMama says:

    Thanks for the encouragement, Katie and OJ.

    Mrs. Q, that sounds like two blog series. 😉

Thanks so much for participating in this conversation about "a mom's life."

This is a place where moms can be themselves. Remember that each mother's path looks a little different. Please keep your comments respectful and kind. Reasonable minds will disagree in a nice way.

So let's talk about it, using "our big girl words."
