Ok- having a brain fart. Which of the list is ready to cook and which is ready to serve after reheated??
My list? I guess I'll assume you're talking to me and will answer, LOL.
"Ready to cook"
Turkey and stuffing casserole
Hot ham (or turkey) and cheese sandwiches
Quiche (usually with meat and cheese)
Apple and peach pies (sometimes with crust, sometimes just the filling)
"Ready to serve after reheating or thawing"
Chicken lo mein
Banana bread and mini-muffins
Graham cracker crust pies (peanut butter pie, chocolate pie, lemonade pie, etc.)
OT: Amy, how close are you to Shorewood/Joliet? I come up to visit my mom several times a year.

now that the weather is getting cooler, making bread dough up and freezing sounds like a great idea. Do you let it rise first before freezing??
Here's an incredible soup/thick sauce that freezes beautifully. I got the recipe here at MDC somewhere:
It was so tasty-reminded DH and me of being at the Indian restaurant. I had added the red curry for the heat and Madras curry powder for a great mid-tone. When I unfreeze my next batch, I will probably throw in some cooked cubed lamb and a can of peas and serve over rice. Totally like a restaurant-yum!
Thai squash soup~feeds our family(5) 1 supper with lunch for 1 leftover
1 good sized butternut squash~prick with a fork a few time and roast it in the oven on a cookie sheet. takes 45 min-1 hour depending on squash
In a big soup pot:
1 onion, diced 4 cloves garlic, minced
1 thumb sized piece of ginger, grated
~add the above to pot with 2 TBS butter~
4 medium potates, cubed ~add to onions~ cook until onions are clarified
4-6 cup veggie broth
cover and cook until potatoes are done
With a hand blender/food processor/blender puree potatoe mixture
Seed/peel squash and puree~ add to potatoes mixture
Add 1 can cocnut milk, salt and pepper to taste and curry paste to taste. (some like it spicey others not so much) If you don't have curry paste you can always do your favorite curry blend.
reduce temp to low and let simmer 15 min or so to let the flavors mingle.
Enjoy with naan or crusty bread....sourdough is good too!
Freeze in freezer bags/lay them flat for easier storage
