Chubby Peggy Me

There I am! As of current … I have definitely gained some weight (boo). My nose has gotten bigger. I was assured that this “big nose syndrome” (AS I WOULD LIKE TO CALL IT), is a normal thing and will return back to normal once I give birth (IT BETTER *shakes fist*). I feel like a whale but I make do with what I have LOL. I have actually been putting makeup on again to feel slightly decent HAHAHA. Just figured I’d put this up here as a little thing for me to look back on in the future. Or if/when I decide to have another child, I can look at this picture and prepare myself mentally that I would look like this again. LMAO.

So I have been trying to keep myself busy to stray away from being super lazy. Let’s face it, once I get lazy and set my ass on the couch, that’s it. I’m done. I ain’t doing shit all. It’s not a good thing since I already am having bad tailbone pain from the pressure of the growing baby and the weight gain. Plus, any type of moving around is a form of exercise for me which I really need. Since it’s winter, it’s hard to go out for a nice walk around the park and get my 30 minute exercise with all the icy pavements. Don’t want to have a spill now do we? Especially being almost 7 months pregnant. I’m already clumsy enough as it is.

So what have I been doing? Been doing a lot of cooking and preparing. I’m trying to make some easy meals here and there so that I don’t overwork myself and also at the same time preparing meals that can be frozen so that I’m prepared for when the baby comes. I’m sure in the first couple or so months, I’m not going to have much time OR energy to cook elaborate meals for my husband and I. Nor do I want to spend so much money on take-out food so I prepared freezable meals! So far I’ve made shepherd’s pie, pancake stacks, pancake muffins, baked macaroni, tuna casserole, chicken pot pie muffins and breakfast burritos! Of course, my husband still likes to eat everything so I have to make more LOL.

Sweet Chili Spinach Chicken QuesadillaChicken Pot Pie Muffins

My favourite quick meal is the Sweet Chili Spinach Chicken Quesadilla. I just premake everything, keep it in a Tupperware and bake it anytime I want in a tortilla!! I have this obsession with chicken and cheese right now so it’s a good combo for me. Plus, I’m really really trying hard to eat veggies to keep baby boy healthy, so I add the spinach in there and I actually like it!

One of my husband’s favourite is the Chicken Pot Pie Muffins! It’s exactly like how it’s called (you can see from the pics). He loves them because I made about 24 of them so far and it’s frozen in the freezer but everytime he wants one, he just pops it in the microwave and … VOILA! Nice and soft and moist.

My favourite frozen snack is the Pancake Muffins (with chocolate chips!). These go really really fast. I have to make more actually. I make them in different sizes too. The mini muffins and regular sized muffins. I freeze these as well and just pop them in the microwave everytime I want to eat one. They pretty much taste like pancakes but in muffin form! So it’s actually kinda nice when you dip them in syrup!

So I’m always willing to try more recipes. All trial and error really but my husband is absolutely LOVING it. He says I’ll be the best mom ever or our kid will get really fat because of all the good food. I’m glad he loves my cooking. Makes me feel special because I’ve always been fond of cooking and I love the idea of being able to feed my family good tasting food just like my mom did with us. I still miss my mom’s cooking from time to time. I might have to do a couple of requests soon just so I can feel the love again LOL.

I miss my mom.

    Freezable meals is a good idea! It’s nice to do all of the cooking at once and then not worry about it for a while 🙂 All of those recipes sound delicious, and they look good too. That’s awesome that your husband likes them so much!
