YOU ARE ABOUT
Here is a quick overview of what you need, please use the more robust printable listed above.
Some of the seasonal vegetables & fruits may not be listed here but in general you can expect organic:
Steel Cut Oats
Maine Made Rolled Oats
Split Mung Bean
Black Strap Molasses
Sugar Kelp Flakes
Chicken Thighs (frozen)
Bone Broth (frozen)
Food Containers with Lids
Ricing Bag (Mylk Bag)
While you can do ALL of this preparing however you like (enlist help from loved ones, do one long weekend of prep, spread it out), you have about 3 weeks until your next delivery. It's up to you how you want to manage this. One mass weekend of cooking, spread it out, split the recipes up and ask others for help! Whatever way you choose, you can go at a pace that works with your life and needs. Local Doorstep Deliveries typically occur at 32 weeks, 35 weeks, week 1, 2, 4 & 6.
When you know how you are going to tackle it, take a look at your pantry again to ensure you have everything you need. Some of it may be from the delivery we made, some you have hanging around, and some might need a trip to the store. Whatever it is, try and have everything in place before you get going.

ALSO, it's great to get a jump on these:
Besides the recipes suggested above, please explore the Master Recipe Section.
This flexibility should lend itself to fitting into your overall plan. Meaning - if you have say a Meal Train (and know what you might be receiving) you could make more or less depending on your own personal situation.
It seems obvious to say but just in case, if you pull a lot from this new pantry to make additional recipes, a restock for some of it may be needed in the postpartum....especially if this food is also feeding loved ones in the home.
