It's true that I have been fed by neighbors, ward members and my mom for 12 days now, but today I had to do more than just reheat what someone else made. Obviously, I wanted something simple. Here's what we ate:
Chicken breasts with 2 cups salsa. Put in the crock pot in the morning and cooked all day.
Boiled baby carrots
I know. Very simple, but I did it. Mostly. I put the rice and the baby carrots to boil, then my mom watched them so they didn't boil over while I nursed the baby. If I had been by myself it would have totally boiled over and made a mess and we would smell burned rice in the house for a week. But all Mom had to do was stir periodically and adjust the temp. I did everything else.
Now what will I make tomorrow.... Just kidding. I already have a plan. You're welcome to visit again in 2 weeks when I have no help and no plan. Things will be different (worse) then, but for now I have a plan. Also, don't ask about Friday 'cause I have no plan for Friday.
And now, because these pictures have nothing to do with this post, here are pics of Annika and Beck that I took today. Actually these pictures are for Celia Fae, who I just met. She asked me in yesterday's comments for baby pics and I don't need to be asked twice!
This is Annika trying out Beck's car seat. Obviously, it used to be Annika's. I was so sure that she was my last that my mom sprung for the girlie seat with pink flowers. Yes, this is what I carry my new son around in.
Nothing better than a sleeping baby!
