cooking with a newborn

Westminstress | May 1, 2010 01:23 PM

I'm expecting a baby in June (our first). I'm really not into cooking, freezing, and defrosting stuff, and I'm not big on take-out either. Usually in season I go to the farmers market every week and buy fresh ingredients and cook them -- we will cook maybe 3-4 nights in a week and go out the other nights. We really enjoy both cooking and going out to eat, so we do both a lot!

Well, I'm sure everything will change once we have the baby. I'll have at least 4 months maternity leave, all coming at the very best time of year for cooking from the farmer's market (which is pretty much the kind of cooking I enjoy). I'm trying to gauge, among other things, whether to sign up for a CSA, and I just have no idea how much time and inclination I'll have to cook. I'm really interested in hearing from others who've been through this -- did you cook with a new baby in the house? How long did it take before you were back in the kitchen?
