  • My mother and I just had a food prep marathon.  We prepared and froze many meals from 1 turkey.

    Well, these recipes are great for anyone who wants to go on a carb binge. Yikes!! @BumpAdmin, how about an updated list with healthier choices?

  • I am looking for some recipes that we can prepare before our little one comes. Any ideas?
  • Right after this Holiday week, I plan on making a shepherds pie, and a few other casserole type dishes that include chicken, or ham or turkey quinoa, or rice, and various vegetables. I also think I might make a lasagna or some italian dishes. Maybe a few crock pot recipes portioned in some mason jars, ready to pour the day I want to eat them. Especially since I hear in the first couple of months cooking is a chore.

    @horrordoll-does the pasta get mushy after being frozen or absorb all the liquid it's with? I always worry about freezing pasta in soup. Otherwise your recipe sounds delicious!!
  • Sloppy Joes, Homemade Buns, Cookies.....throw in a salad or roasted veggie when you have the meal.
  • How early can we start preparing meals for after baby?

    I have a day marked on my calendar to plan my freezer meals, then a day set aside to cook those meals, so I will be following this board.  One thing other than whole meals that I want to keep on hand are energy bites.  I found this recipe for anyone else interested...whether or not you end up having lactation issues or not, I think they are healthy.

  • When is a good time to start prepping the freezer meals. I don’t want to start to early and have the food taste freezer burnt.
