Frozen Assets

In preparation for little one's arrival, Matt and I have been making double batches of our dinners and freezing half (or more) so that we'll have some eatables in the fridge when we're busy with the absorbing task of caring for a newborn. So far we've made:

– baked ziti
clam chowder
mexican chicken casserole
BBQ chicken & black bean burritos
– maybe I'm forgetting one other??

Are there any dishes that you guys make that you know freeze well? Our freezer's getting progressively fuller, but we've still got a ways to go and I'm almost tapped out.

PS. We recently made Jenn's recipe for Rootbeer Sorbet. And it's AWESOME.

    What a great idea! I hope I'm that organized when I get that close to having my baby. I was going to suggest lasagna as well.

    That is a great idea! I wish I'd thought of that before Lila was born.

    You've got one of my one-and-only meals tucked in the freezer already

    Yes, I need to broaden my horizons!

    Good planner you are…

    My mom made a *ton* of things for us for the freezer. It was wonderful! People from our church also made meals and delivered them to us. We were *so* grateful for all of the help. How about baked spaghetti? My mom makes a great chili cornbread casserole ~ let me know if you'd like the recipe. It is *soooo* wonderful to have stuff that you can just heat up!
