To be a Grama…

Pots were clanking, pans were bubbling, veggies peeled and cut, cookie dough bagged, t.v. dinners all wrapped and sealed. The first day we made spaghetti, two kinds of manicotti and three kinds of cookie dough. We also made Hearty chicken in red sauce. The next day we made Red lentil soup, Chicken pot pie, Roz bizilla and Teriyaki noodles.

We took a little time out to look at baby comforter sets and found great clearance outfits! But the best thing was being together as a family. It is what our family does, it is our thing,Β we get together and help out, laugh and joke, make up games to play and feel like our old unit once again! Our whole family was present except Yusuf and his wife Alicia and my daughter Saleeha.

Two little baby coats Foof bought, you can see Kenny peeking out and he was not happy about any of this or any talk about babies.

I have made t.v. dinners at different times throughout the years, but this time I read up on food safety guidelines, sealing the containers and the best way to store dinners for quality and safety. It was a fun weekend and I am even more excited to be a Grama! Most likely I will be popping over to make more meals in a couple of months!

  1. What wonderful photos of a happy family time – especially as you really have something to celebrate! From the look of your daughter-in-law, it won’t be long before we can call you ‘Grandma’! I’m amazed by how much preparatory cooking you did, too. All those tv dinners look scrumptious. You’ll be in need of a good rest after the holiday. A lovely, heartwarming post, Lynn.

  2. What a wonderful mom, MIL and grandma you are Lynz! That is so wonderful that you prepared all of that food for them! I’m jealous I had to prepare all of my own frozen dinners right before delivery!! πŸ™‚
