Thanks for these ideas - I have thought about freezing meals ahead for after our baby comes, but haven't put anything into action yet. I'll have to bookmark this & come back to make a list!

Congrats on your upcoming baby! Very exciting! I am almost 38 weeks now, waiting for my 2nd daughter to arrive!

I'm working on a bunch of freezer meals too. But I sure can't wait for the baby to get here so I can stop freezing those meals and start eating them! :D

Good thinking, especially the muffins and other breakfast stuff. When our son was born we got dinners from friends at church, which usually was enough for leftovers at lunch but needed breakfast food.

Cook a potroast in beef broth and freeze. You can serve it later with mashed potatoes and make the broth into gravy. If you eat pork products you could cook a pork shoulder and mix with bbq. Serve it later with cornbread and beans.

Thank you thank you thank you! I just made up a batch of the fried rice from your recipe, and it's great. My husband just said that it's his new second favourite meal! (His favourite meal is Shephard's pie which, until now, was the only other vaguely decent meal that I could cook!)

I added in baby corn and red and green capsicum as well to get some more veggies in and a few more eggs, and it's great. We had dinner for the two of us tonight, and there is probably another eight side dish or lunch sized serves left to go in the freezer.

I read your post earlier in the week and thought we would try the rice dishes and I'm so glad we did. I'm typing this as I'm eating my fried rice (hey - it's saturday, I can eat in from of the computer!). As soon as I'm finished eating I'm going to make the Mexican rice which we've never had before.

Thanks again - and good luck for when your brand new bub arrives!
