ooh yumm Blossom! love orange cakes, and lemon too. delicious
My POAS addiction has turned sour I POAS about lunch time and I think it was pretty clear urine so quite dilute and I had a barely there squinter. I'm pretty over it now, that didn't take long
This is about the fifth time this exact scenario has happened. I get some decent faint lines for a day or two and then they fade out. So I guess something is starting to happen and then it doesn't implant properly for some reason and just disappears. Very frustrating where there is a clear (but faint) line. I also am one of those people that must be pretty sensitive to hormones too - yesterday my b00bs were really sore (has happened every time I'm pregnant very, very early) and then today they're not. So I will be surprised if a line turns up in the next few days as I think what might have started out as promising is ending up as another chem I'll test maybe once tomorrow afternoon. Right now I just feel like waiting for AF to arrive on Wednesday and not testing at all. Dammit this sucks.
Oh no summer. It's not over till you see AF though so fingers crossed for you still
Yum Blossom I'm a sucker for anything citrus ! AFM I'm stocking up the freezer and have already run out of room. Sounds ridiculous on such a hot day but I just finished pumpkin soup (I was given a pumpkin so...) and have now got vacuum seal bags of potato mash, pumpkin soup, savoury mince, tomato passata. I'm making stroganoff tonight but we both love it so may not be much left to freeze but will stock up on that too in the next few weeks. I'll be dropping a heap of this off at FIL's house as he has a big deep freeze. I know it's early but since it's all vacuum sealed I'm fine with it being frozen for 3 months or even more. Any other suggestions for freezer meals ?
Summer poo. Mine fluctuated a lot when it was super early and super faint. It went backwards sometimes. My boosies also fluctuated with their soreness and at one point they felt back to normal too and I was sure it was over. I hope it progresses well from here ... Fingers crossed..
JulieMalooley I do a lot of batch cooking - like Lite n Easy, but homemade. I find most things freeze pretty well. Did you have Day to Day Cookery at school? A lot of its recipes can be frozen - chicken supreme, spaghetti bolognese, tuna mornay, stir-frys, stews, Mac and cheese, shepherds pie. I include veges in with meat and sauce and either put rice/pasta on top and flip as I serve (so it looks prettier), or I store in seperate little containers. I recently purchased a Sunbeam Banquet size frypan and it can hold 10-12+ large adult serves, so we eat 2 and freeze 10. You could have a look at L&E site for ideas - if they can freeze it so can you... If you have a thermal cooker then have a look a skinnymixers.com.au (if you haven't already) - or f you don't have a thermal cooker there would be heaps of ideas there, that you might be able to adapt?
Also, if stuck when you have bubbas, maybe put a call out on Quirky's Healthy Hampers (on Facebook) and they'll cook some fresh delights for you? They'd love feeding a first time mum with twins!
How do you find vacuum sealer economy wise? I use Multix or Glad containers.
