food friday . week 6

it’s been a busy couple weeks…  sick family and car troubles seemed to throw a wrench into my plans, but it was nice to hunker down and take care of everyone.  including myself and the wee one i’m growing.  lots of napping, chicken noodle soup {with a side of pregnancy melt down…  i’ll explain later} & home bodies.  a good interruption i think.

we also welcomed a new neice:

{so sweet.  can’t wait to get to know this little person.}

AND passed on some frozen dinners to her mom & dad while they adjust to caring for a newborn.

however, i forgot to label and provide details about the individual dishes {oops}.  so last night i put together some printable labels to use for future frozen meals & share with you all.

hope they come in handy!
