D-Day (delivery day) struck the McCormick household on May 12th. Since then, life has been a blur of feeding, sleeping, tummy time, and somehow finding moments to shovel a few food items in our mouth here and there.
And it's oh so worth it for these sweet faces. Meet James Philip and Caroline Kathleen McCormick.
I mean, seriously, could they be more amazing?
Obviously, I may be a tad biased.
We've been home with these little kiddos for 10 days, some of that time on our own and some of it with my mother-in-law in town to help. Caring for infant twins is definitely a two person job, and the third person is critical for making sure that anything else (dog walking, coffee making, laundry, grocery shopping, watering the tomato plants outside, helping me get a nap in, etc.) gets done.
We also have a dear friend who set up a meal train for us. Have you heard of mealtrain.com? It's a super handy way to organize meals for those in recovery from pregnancy, illness, surgery, etc. It's also terrific because people sign up what they'll be bringing you and can see what others have in store so there aren't too many repeat casseroles.
In the past two weeks we have enjoyed:
- Chicken pot pie with salad and strawberry sheet cake
- Luella's BBQ
- Baked ziti with turkey sausage and peppers
- Dickey's Barbecue Pit
- Chicken tortilla soup
- Bacon wrapped pork tenderloin with watermelon and sautéed vegetables
- Gourmet meatballs and sauce
Thankfully all of these came in huge portions so not having a meal every single day was a bit of a blessing.
Meal Train Tip: Ask those dropping off a meal to text or call you that day with their anticipated arrival time. That way you know if you'll be enjoying it for lunch or dinner. You'll also know that you need to be dressed:)
So please enjoy the recipe links above and excuse me as I take a short (or long?) hiatus. Not sure yet when I'll be back to cooking, much less cooking new things:)
In the meantime, you can find a link to all of the Resolved Cook recipes below as well.
See you soon!
