I am expecting DC#2 in June and just bought a chest freezer so that I can freeze meals and snacks to have on hand when the new baby is born. I have never done this before and don't know what kinds of things freeze well. I am a gluten-free vegan who eats mostly raw but a couple of times per week my husband and daughter add meat to the veg meals that I make. What kinds of dinners freeze well? How soon ahead of time can I start making and freezing things? If I want to make doughy things ahead of time, like pizza dough, do I let the dough ball rise before I freeze it or after? Are there vegan cookbooks with good ideas for this kind of thing? Thanks!!!

That link to the freezing meals thread was great, but not too many veggie options that I could find. Anyone have resources for that?
