I have been thinking of trying to make a couple of freezer meals for the first week after baby is born. I will be having a c-section and hubby has only 1 week vacation time to spend with me--yikes! BUT, I am sort of a newbie cook and have no idea what to make that could be frozen.

Soooo... I am going to post a topic in the recipes subforum and if you have any recipes, I would LOVE for you to share them with me

Great idea I was wondering the same. I heard Chilli and Lasagna freeze well.

I'm doing the same thing! I just made some homemade bread and put one loaf of it in the freezer, with easy directions DH to follow I'm planning on making some lasagna and pasta meals to freeze down as well.

I bought a freezer meal cookbook. I've been planning to make a few for the past couple of weeks but have yet to start. Maybe I'll get around to it this weekend. If I find any good ones I'll post them.

You can freeze practically anything. Something I've done before many of my babies is cook double batches for dinner... half gets eaten and half gets frozen. There is no extra prep or clean up this way, but it is quite easy to put away a lot of meals, especially if you start early. It's helpful to have extra foil pans as well as leftover containers. Freezing things like soups, stews, chili, etc. in bags and letting them freeze flat for stacking really saves room.

Chili, lasagna, casseroles freeze well already prepped. Otherwise, I like to freeze meats with the seasonings or marinades.

I just make DH go out and buy every meal for us. It's why he's home, right?

Great thing about a June child - Grilling. I plan on haviing lots of grilled dinners. Not just hot dogs. You can marinate chicken and grill, steaks, pork. I also grill veggies and fruit.

We are planning on making so far:

*Pea soup
*Alfredo sauce
*Quiches

All of those freeze well. DH also knows to go grocery shopping while i am in the hospital and to stock up on veggie stick things, lunch meat, frozen pizzas, fresh fruits, juices and milk.

Last time around we bought a bunch of ready made frozen things like chicken chimis, chili stuff, etc. Too many heavy things. Too much spice.
