I know we've got a few months to go yet but we are at the third trimester so I thought I'd get a thread of freezer meal ideas going. I would love to hear if you have any other food prep plans or ideas for when baby comes.
My kids have some food sensitivities so I really feel like planning ahead is important. I am very blessed that DH can cook but he can't stay home forever (and he tends to blow the budget, sweet man). I have the freezer to crockpot ecookbook from MamaBabyLove blog that I will be using some.
Beans (black and garbanzo) cooked in large batches and frozen into smaller portions.
pancakes for kids breakfast
muffins (a few types) for kids breakfast
freeze smoothies (usually berries, bananas, orange, greens and carrot juice) into popsicles for quick snacks
turkey breakfast sausage
crockpot chicken curry
buffalo turkey meatballs
muffin tin tacos (maybe)
homemade frozen pizza
marinated rosemary, lemon chicken
garlic herb crockpot chicken
cilantro lime chicken
lime and coconut chicken
stuffed peppers (can be cooked in the crockpot)
Chicken and spinach quesadillas
Fajitas (meat, spices, peppers and onions)
coconut chicken nuggets
Not sure I'll get all of those made but those are my ideas!
I am trying to figure out a good snacks to have available that the kids can grab themselves. I am hoping if I have a basket in the cupboard and one in the fridge with healthy snacks they can get them.
