Love that you are so organized to plan all of these recipes! They all look so nutritious too…maybe you could post the recipe for the spinach and lentil stew? I’m a vegetarian, and that one sounds awesome. Best of luck with your new baby.

Great planning!

My babies are always 2-3 weeks late, so I expect #6 will be no different. So, I am planning for 2 weeks later.

My husband did tell me this week that he wants to learn how to make my pizza dough, so maybe he’s up for making pizza after the next one is born!

I’ve got a few more months to go still, but I am going to try to make it easier this time for my family by freezing sauces and soups ahead of time.
