I’ve been in nesting mode in a big way lately.

Among my many nesting tendencies is the desire to stock our house with as much non-perishable food as possible before the baby arrives.

You’d think that I was preparing to be trapped in the house for the next decade or something, but I can’t fight the urge!

Anyway, I picked up a few freezer and pantry items yesterday (in addition to my weekly staples), and within the next few weeks, I’ll probably be purchasing similar items when I shop to slowly build up our stash.


  • Latin style black bean soup
  • Arugula
  • Sunflower seeds
  • Whole wheat flour tortillas
  • Earth Balance butter
  • Lentils



  • Stevia packets (NuNaturals stevia is my favorite, but these are good as a backup…and much cheaper.)
  • Turkey meatballs
  • Whole grain French toast
  • Butternut squash risotto
  • Tomato & basil hummus
  • Chicken chile lime burgers



  • Spicy Thai style pasta salad (This was dinner last night, and it was pretty tasty!)
  • Fire roasted red and yellow peppers
  • Goddess dressing
  • Balsamic dressing
  • Tomato-less corn salsa
  • Peppermint tea (my favorite tea ever)


If you’re interested, I’ll do a post solely devoted to the projects I’ve been tackling as a result of my extreme nesting. Just let me know in the comments if that’s something you’d like to see. 

Have a great day!

I’m off to the Apple Genius Bar because my shift key isn’t working.  Fingers crossed that it isn’t a pricey fix!


  1. Oh my gosh, I haven’t seen that tea! I need to try that. I like this style of post! :)
