I took a dinner to a friend who just had a baby. She was so perfect, just quietly sleeping in her bassinet. I don't remember mine ever doing that at 2 weeks; but, I was in a hormone fog for about 6 weeks postpartum. It might have been pleasant and I wouldn't remember!
Anyway, I dropped off the dinner and drove away thinking...OMG, what if they found one of my hairs in the food...what if the chicken wasn't cooked through...I forgot to tell her that I cooked the rice in coconut milk - what if they are allergic to coconuts...what if...what if...what if... I really need to get a grip because several hours later she emailed me to ask for the recipe it was so yummy!
So here is my yummy postpartum dinner for Aimee and Eric. It is a favorite in our house and very easy and quick to make. Don't forget to pull your hair back before you start cooking!
