Preparing for Baby: Freezer Meals

With the end of September quickly approaching I'm starting to seriously think about preparing for this little girl's arrival.

At the top of my list of things to organize is GOOD FOOD! We all need it, especially me as I will be recovering from giving birth and breastfeeding while chasing around a 4.5 year old who also has a LARGE appetite!

Already in the freezer so far:
~ 2 meals (for the 3 of us) + a couple lunches worth of grass fed beef and pinto bean chili - just add rice
~ 2 or 3 meals worth of grassfed beef meatballs
~ 2 loaves zucchini bread
~ 2 meals of bolagnaise spaghetti sauce
~ a couple lunch portions of butternut squash soup 
~ balls of pizza dough 



~ tortillas


And that's it so far. I also plan on making a baked chicken penne dish and maybe some of my favorite rice casserole but I need more ideas.

Do you have any favorite freezer meals that are healthy, filling and affordable to put together (so NOT lasagna!)??

My favorites were Shepards Pie , burritos (very easy and quick) and mexican macaroni and cheese (basically larger shells with shredded chicken and spicy cheese sauce. SO glad we had so many freezer meals!

I have made meatballs, meatloaf, pizza, chicken alfredo (without the pasta), taco mixes, several crockpot recipes where I mixed the ingredients together in a baggie and just froze it until I was ready to use it. That makes cooking super easy!

Congrats on the new baby.
