We're due in just a few weeks with #2, and I'm thinking it's time to stock the freezer with some meals for after the babe is born. But I don't usually freeze meals, and am not sure what will work well. I do have a lasagna frozen, as well as carrot soup. Any other ideas for yummy post-baby frozen meals???

Thanks a lot!!

Many things freeze well--the things that don't are really the exceptions. I'm not vegetarian though--don't know if it's trickier if you are.

I freeze soups, stews, chili, bbq beef and pork, quiche-in-a-bag (crustless quiche which you freeze unbaked and just pour in a pie plate and stick in the oven), roast chicken, meatloaf, meatballs, cooked ground beef, cooked beans, etc. Chicken frozen in a marinade can be dumped into a dish and baked and tastes wonderful.

I found that it wasn't a good idea to go by "cooking for the freezer" type cookbooks as I often made stuff my family wasn't nuts about. What worked better for us was to just try to freeze one batch of a family favorite, and try it after two weeks to see how it worked in the freezer.

I love the book called The Freezer Cooking Manual and the message boards at
http://www.30daygourmet.com

I disliked the book Once a Month Cooking.

If doing a search try the phrases
"bulk cooking"
"freezer cooking"
"once a month cooking"

Take the time to heal from your marriage before you move on with someone else. Make a list of all the qualities you would like in a new partner and then work on growing that way yourself. ~mandib50
