What foods should I stock the house with?

My pregnancy journal suggest going shopping and stocking the house with good foods around 37 weeks so that I don't have to worry about running out to the super market to much in the first couple of days when baby gets here.

This is what I have on my list so far:
Chicken Breast
Ground Turkey (I figure I can freeze the meat so it will last a couple of weeks)
Low fat block cheese (to slice for snacks)
Shredded Cheeses
Individual cottage cheese cups
Spinach (fresh and frozen)
Fresh and Frozen veggies
Fruit (fresh, frozen, canned and dried so it will last)
Lunch meat
Pasta Sauce (I make my own but I was thinking about making a big batch and freezing a few jars)

Am I missing anything? What would you suggest adding?

I'm also thinking about freezing some cassoroles. I was thinking:
Cheesy, Chicken and Bro

  • Id get some sort of juice...and icecream because if you plan on not grocery shopping the first few weeks its because you know having a baby is gonna be tough at obviously your gonna want something to look forward to and a big bowl of icecream could be just that!

  • LOL. That would be a good thing to have. Everyone always talks about how thirsty you get while breastfeeding in the first few day.
