Resource/Advice Needed About making meals ahead of time

JennyHunter | Dec 27, 2006 09:39 PM

Before I had my son a year ago I was an avid cook - and had all of the time to make meals at my leisure. Now my time is much more limited. I find myself needing to cook things in stages, make double and freeze, etc.. I am starting to get tired of just freezing extra stews, soups, casseroles and the like. Any good tips put there about prepping meals in advance? And not one dish recipes.. I wish I new of a cookbook that would give you recipes (good ones!)with notes about where you could make ahead of time, and then finish later. Also, I am just learning to freeze meals - and I sometimes wonder about re-heating. Do I need to thaw first, etc... Any advice or resources would be greatly appreciated. The chicken caccitore, shrimp creole and marcella's bolognese are actually getting tiresome. Help! Any moms of little guys out there?
