    Enchiladas/enchilada casserole, chili, soups, waffles, muffins, banana bread... depends what you like to eat normally.

  • I haven't started planning this yet {it's a little early for me} but I've been collecting recipes for freezer meals for after DD arrives:

    I need to get back to it - I've been a slacker blogger for the last 6 months. Tongue Tied

  • Chicken pot pies, Shepard's pies and stir fry are easy to make and then freeze. 
  • Any one know of any Vegetarian Freezer Friendly meals?

    I am just starting to get organized and with my amazing pregnancy brain am having trouble thinking of ideas that would still be good frozen.

     

    Sorry to jack your post. ;)

  • I'm starting to make freezer meals tonight. I am not going to make a bunch of stuff, just eat night when I make a good dinner, I will make double and freeze half!

    Tonight is cherry chipotle chicken!!

  • Something I make that is SUPER easy: Stromboli

    • Buy frozen bread dough (you can buy 5 loaves in the freezer section for around $5
    •  Let is raise according to the bag instructions
    •  Take the bread and flatten into rectangle type shape (approx 8 in by 12) Do not roll out but flatten with your hands, it helps make the bread lighter tasting in the end
    •  Put whatever ingredients you want in it! My favorites are:
      • Ham, Swiss cheese, green peppers, onions
      • Pizza sauce, sausage, pepperoni, moz cheese
    • Wrap up and pinch ends together and flip over with pinched side down
    • Butter the top, and put your choice of seasoning (parm cheese, oregano, etc)
    • Cook on 275 for approx 16 minutes or until it starts to turn golden brown
    • Let cool and wrap for the freezer
    • To eat:
      • Thaw and cook for 16 minutes at 275 or until warm
    THESE REHEAT BEAUTIFULLY!!!

    I made Pioneer Woman/Pastor Ryan's Mexican lasagna this weekend and I think that that will freeze nicely.  I plan on making a batch for the freezer once we get a bit closer to the due date.  Beware though, the recipe makes enough for about 2 9x13 pans.

    I make that much on purpose when I freeze lasagna - just put it in 4 - 8x8 square pans (I buy the cheapy foil ones for this purpose). Any 9x13 casserole recipe makes 2 square pans, generally. I find a square pan to be a supper and a lunch for the two of us.

  • This got me thinking that I need to start collecting meal ideas (and buy a freezer).  Online, I've noticed a lot of websites will give you a few recipes out of a larger cookbook.  So I check my library's website and sure enough they have a lot of them.  I'll be requesting them and copying pages.
