OMG we're having a baby!

Yes, and as much as we're thrilled, we're also terrified. The baby's not due for another 8 months, but I'm starting to think about preparing food for the next, oh, 18 years or so.

The problem is, I'm kind of a food snob and I usually eat freshly prepared food. But realistically, I'm never going to have time to cook again and I know I'll eventually get tired of take-out so I'm thinking I need to learn how to prepare stuff that can be frozen and then reheated, but I have no idea what freezes well or how long you can keep it or even the best ways to reheat it.

So, what to do? Should I buy a big freezer? How long does lasagna last? Do you have to reheat the whole huge lasagna or do you cut it up first? How about chicken pot pie? What else should I cook? Do some things need to be heated in the oven or can everything go in the microwave? Are there books I should buy?

I'm panicking here, people.
