Baby due in March- veg. dishes and baked goods to freeze? Ideas?

lissar | Dec 9, 2009 05:05 PM

Our second kid is due mid-March, and I'm starting to mentally gear up for the cook-and-freeze-a-thon beforehand. I've been remembering what I liked last time and scanning old threads here for inspiration, and I've got a pretty meat-heavy list. I'm looking for veggie or low-meat mains that freeze well. I particularly remember not being able to use a knife or eat with two hands for at least two months, so anything liquidy is right out.

I'm also looking for freezable baked goods ideas- I do most of our bread baking, and have a couple of fallback quick bread recipes, but I'd like to expand my repetoire.

Our first kid has just been diagnosed with Type 1 diabetes, so I want to be as organised as possible about meals after the baby arrives- we're going to need a much stricter meal plan and meal schedule than last time (no eating the same chocolate cake for breakfast, lunch, and dinner this time round).
