Have shopping list, will sleep.

My super husband has determined that he would like to cook dinner for the rest of the week and train himself to pull off a good rep of reliable dinners once the Kid's born. Today I therefore purchased dearest Rachael's Express Lane Meals, which looks like it will be wildly useful to us, despite the mixed reviews. The book is already singing my song; Part I is titled "Meals for the Exhausted". I look forward to the results. Not the exhaustion.

I don't think I have had a single flop with any of her recipes. Though once an aspiring foodie who eschewed convenience cooking and would never admit to liking RR, I am now much more interested in results than in process, and bow to Rachael.

It's not the most frugal approach to cooking, but damn, does it ever work for our apartment-bound family. When we have a house with a yard and a BBQ and a vegetable patch, or a handy porch to facilitate organic delivery, it might be another story.

That being said, I do look forward to haunting some farmers' markets this summer. Fresh local veggies are worth the trip.

Also worth the trip: the car seat installation joint in Leaside. We're ready to roll.

I've been washing newborn clothes and diaper wraps all week. It's real, folks.
