Addiction isn’t typically thought of as a positive thing, is it? I don’t think of myself as being an addict of anything, really. Well, I have to come clean. I have recently developed a definite addiction. It interferes with my life on a daily basis. And I don’t even mind one bit. Baby snuggles, you guys. I CANNOT GET ENOUGH.

For those of you who have had babies of your own, I get it now. I understand why you always want to pinch those squishy cheeks, stroke the ultra soft newborn hair, and smell the sweet newborn smell. (Sounds SO weird, I know. But it’s so good!) I get it and I am all in. All in!

All of those freezer meals I made and the meals our family and friends have brought by have been so good. Good in and of themselves, and good for saving me time cooking so I can snuggle my little man even more. They aren’t kidding when they say that babies grow up too fast. I feel like every time I blink and look and Edward, he’s grown!

The freezer meals I made in preparation for little Edward’s arrival a few weeks ago were mostly quite simple. Curries, soup, and pasta sauces mostly. We figured that we would be able to muster up the small amount of energy it would take to throw some noodles or rice in a pot to accompany the curries or sauces. Well, Karl would. I still haven’t really had to cook yet post baby. (Freezer meals for the win! Also, many thanks to our family and friends who have brought us meals! Much love to you!)

This simple pasta sauce is something I came up with when I had to whip up a quick dinner using what I had on hand. Besides being incredibly delicious, it is also healthy, simple, and uses staple items from the pantry. I love having recipes like this in my back pocket and keeping my pantry stocked with the ingredients.
