Is anyone else going to make ahead some meals and freeze for after baby is born?

I have winter break in a couple weeks and was planning on doing this. I have our moms and a couple friends who are great about helping out, but I'd love to be able to not think about/make dinner for awhile after baby comes...

Here is my list of ideas (please add your own!):

Chicken enchiladas
Meat loaf
German meatballs

Hmmm... Need help thinking of more!!! Casseroles are good too!

I am not doing too many, but will do some! I am going to make spaghetti pie and probably lasagne, and also some spaghetti/meat sauce!

Thanks *Kiliki* for my amazingly perfect siggy!

Oooooh! I'm loving making things that can be taken out and eaten in single servings! So I did meatloaf, but baked it in muffin tins and then took it out and froze it that way so DH can just heat up a plate super quick. Also make twice baked potatoes and froze them individually. If you've got the tupperware for it, deconstructed lasagna (noodles tossed in with ricotta and sauce and meat or veggies) is great for single serving things too.
I love the ideas you guys are sharing!
Soup and chili are great to have in the freezer. Also, stroganoff sauce - just cook some pasta and maybe a frozen veggie. Oh and I've had good luck with fried rice before. Also, doing breakfast stuff has been a hit -- french toast particularly because it's easy to make in large batches, but I think that it's a pain to make on a regular basis. You can re-heat slices in the toaster.
Any others???

Other suggestions I have gotten from friends:
Chicken pot pie
Spaghetti pie
Beef stew

(You guys have maybe mentioned some of these also!)

If you think of more, add them! I'd like to do quite a few!!

I make these chicken, spinach & ricotta quesadillas. Freeze them as individual quesadillas and then all you have to do is pop them in the oven.

I love chicken and dressing mix all mixed up minus the chicken in ziplocs.

Same for Chicken pot pie filling.

I just made some red beans and rice and the recipe says it freezes well too.
