in the kitchen: stocking up

I have been in the kitchen a lot the past few weeks cooking and freezing foods to have on hand after the baby arrives. Here is what I have been working on:

:: lots of different soups using the kale and other greens from my garden. (I had to literally pick off all the bugs from the kale before I used it. I was not going to let any of it go to waste. If the bugs are going to eat it, they are going to have to share.)
:: i made and froze what seems to be a hundred waffles from different fermented grains. (The 3 that freeze the best and don't dry out are buckwheat, amaranth, and oat.)
:: a hug batch of crispy nuts
:: coconut kefir pudding
:: cultured veggies (cabbage)
:: tomato-meat sauce with lots of fresh herbs from my garden
:: beef stew (which I plan to bring with me to the birth for my first postpartum meal at the birth center)
:: I know there is more but I can't think of it right now.

As we all prepare for this new little baby's arrival we are joyful because we know that each day that goes by we are one day closer to meeting him.  We are all waiting with open arms and hearts for this little boy.
