I am like a squirrel this fall. I have been cooking and baking to fill up our deep freeze with ready to heat meals for after this little one arrives. I only have 2 months to go.
Today I made a huge batch of cinnamon rolls.(http://thepioneerwoman.com/cooking/2007/06/cinammon_rolls_/)
These are the best I have ever made. And I have tried quite a few other recipes.
Some other things in the freezer are: macaroni and cheese,
chicken and rice casserole with peas, carrots and cheddar
taco meat
spaghetti sauce (with meat)
And a lot of other foil wrapped packages. It is a good feeling to store up food for the winter.
I just hope I don't give in to the temptation of using them before I really need them...

Family shot with Maggie's Great Grandma Patty.

We went to Aberdeen last night so Maggie could show off her monkey costume to some of Sam's family, and join in the festivities of their Fall Carnival. We had a great time, and Maggie loved the games and totally caught on to getting treats...

Here is Maggie with Sam's cousin Abbie.

Showing off her loot to Aunt Sarah.

Ready to go!
