I'd like some tasty recipes that freeze well. I am very good about doing all the usual things but wondered if anyone had any unusual suggestions. Baby due beginning Oct so I'm having fun planning food now whilst I can.

THings I'll be making:
spag bol
lasagne - veg and meat
chilli con carne
chicken pie
fish pie
various soups, mostly minestrone
Fishcakes

Dd was due November, and I cooked tons for the freezer too (the only form my nesting instinct took - it certainly didn't run to cleaning).

I made some nice stews too - lamb shanks and chickpea,
lamb and olive, pork in cider, beef etc - then DH just had to cook some veg to go with. Also shepherds pie.

Other things could also be tagines, curries, meatballs in sauce, sausage casserole...

best not to make chilli things or hot curries if you plan to breastfeed, some babies react badly
i filled the freezer before we had ds and while i did appreciate all the stews, stirfries, meatballs, pies etc what i really craved while b'feeding was stodgy sweet things. if you knock up some fruit crumbles and a bread and butter pudding or two now you will not regret it. shove some icecream in the freezer too. wink

kookiegoddess I am due at the beginning of Sept and have been doing exacly the same thing and am also running out of ideas...as well as dishes on your list I have steak & mushroom pies, meat and seafood moussakas, crab cakes, few quiches and plenty of "things to go with" like cauliflower cheese & spicy red cabbage to go with a roast dinner. I've also written clear instructions on what to do on all the freezer bags for DH. I realise this sounds very fussy and ridiculous, but I so wished I'd done more when I had DS...
