Post-partum Freezer Cooking

post #1 of 16
Thread Starter 
Hey, mamas and mamas-to-be! Now that I don't feel like I'm going to puke every time I look at food, I was thinking of doing some cooking ahead so I can freeze some meals once Babymort gets here. I'd love to hear your favorite recipes, and also wanted to share some resources I found when searching MDC:

Feed the Freezer recipes

Crockpot Recipes (I don't know how freezable they are, but still thought I would share)
Vegetarian Once a Month Cooking Recipes
Healthy Freezable Recipes
Freezing homemade pizza crust
Freezing Assembled Pizzas
Postpartum Freezer Meals
Freezing Casseroles
Vegetarian OAMC
Freezing Meals from Veg Forum
Freezing Beans and Lentils
Freezable Strawberry Ideas (out of season, I know)
Vegetarian Freezer Meals
Breakfast Burritos
Freezing Cooked Beans

End post 1...more to come

OH thank you thank you thank you for all the links AM. I have been wanting to do this and have tried a few of our favorites out to see how they'll freeze but it's very limited selection so far meat loaf, soup, and greenchili stewed meat. Yay I am so excighted to start setting some meals back. I have actually even thought about getting a small freezer for this. I plan to use this for lunches to because I run my own child care and will continue to work after the babe is here!

Thanks for all the links. I'm planning to try to feed my freezer before the baby comes too. My freezers are all packed now, mostly with raw meats and ingredients - and we need to use a bunch to make room!

I have just a few recipes that I've tried and tested that freeze well and am looking for more. I'm making a list and will share it with everyone when it gets a little bigger and more organized!

We will definitely be doing this a lot this time around. I am wondering when is everyone going to start with the freezing? I have got to get my freezer more organized and use up some stuff before anything will fit, so the next few months I will not be doing a whole lot of shopping trying to free up the space.

O wow! Thanks for all the great links. We should make this a sticky or keep it bumped up!

My sister and BIL gave us the best xmas present-- a gift certificate to "Dream Dinners" where you go and assemble a whole bunch of meals and then take them home and freeze them. I've NEVER prepared a meal and frozen it for later, so I was worried about screwing it up and wasting food/time/money and having yucky food when we're brain dead. Of course it seems totally do-able. But now I will have experts to guide me and hold my trembling little hand And a freezer full of meals to pop in the oven! Whoohoo! Hopefully once I do it there I will be an expert and do more on my own!

Aw, you're sweet.

What a great thread to bump! I had filled my freezer to the brim by the time baby came and now, at nearly 10 weeks, we just emptied it. It was a terrific help and my 'rolodex' method worked perfectly. I layed the filled bags flat in the small freezer above the fridge until hardened and stood them upright in the chest freezer like a file. The main part of the freezer held big bags and the two racks on top held small ones.
