I do realize that part of my lack of preparation is that I have other children vying for my attention that might otherwise be spent preparing for Cruz (and I want to give as much to them as is possible since they will probably very soon feel slighted themselves.) But there's also the lack of people reminding me to get things done. Very few people have asked what things I need, which frankly, has allowed me to forget to actually think about what I need: breast pump (the last two times I've borrowed one... and it's going to be more necessary this time around for me to actually have one than the previous two times), diapers, pacifiers (please God, let him take a pacifier!), warmer clothes in small sizes (since Diego was a summer baby). To be honest, there's not that much I do need in the way of actually purchasing items, so it makes sense that no one has asked. Except that... without people constantly asking me, I somehow have completely forgotten that I ought to be preparing for this little guy until now.
So, this week, I am trying to get on the ball. And I started by making a meal that I love and can freeze: Poppy Seed Chicken. It's simple and way yummy. The ladies at the United Methodist Church in Udall often make it for funerals (which is where I first had it) and boy is it good comfort food!
6 cups of cubed, cooked chicken (I bought a rotisserie chicken late at night for $2.99 Manager's Special and just deboned that. Easy and cheap!)
1 cup sour cream
1 can cream of chicken
1 can cream of mushroom
Mix these ingredients and put in the bottom of a casserole dish.
1 stick of melted butter
