Chowpup on the way, never frozen meals!

Jellybelly | Aug 19, 2007 12:37 PM

We have a chowpuppy on the way and I know in my heart of hearts that the right thing to do is freeze a bunch of meals (preferably that can be prepared in less than one quarter of a Sunday afternoon football game :)). The only problem is that I've never been a big freezer girl - small apartment freezers. Well, the smallness of my apartment has not changed, but my need for quicker, less labor-intensive meals has (or is going to). I have frozen lasagne with success, but aside from that, I'm not really sure what freezes well and what doesn't.

Do you have any tips for freezing that you wouldn't mind sharing? I'm particularly interested to know what can/cannot be frozen, what is best frozen in a partially-prepared form vs. what should be fully cooked before freezing, and other such tips. And, of course, any recipes that you have would be GREATLY appreciated.

Thanks all!

(By the way, I did see the post a few weeks ago about the teacher looking for frozen meal ideas, so I will DEFINITELY hit those up!)
