Here are some of the ideas I’m considering to put up for when baby comes. A lot of it will be determined by space in the freezer as we just downsized to a much smaller one. I’m also thinking to just make double at mealtimes and freeze the extra, rather than having a couple huge cooking days.
Chicken strips for fajitas/wraps – some taco seasoned, some plain
Hamburger patties (maybe not; need to figure out how to make these come out not so dry)
Pizzas (if there’s room)
Tomato soup (canned)
Hamburger buns – I’ll wait on these until the very end since our freezer is really small
Cappuccino muffins (can’t find the link to this now – I’m sorry!)
Sweet breads – zucchini, apple, banana, pumpkin – or make into muffins
Chocolate chip cookies
Topping for Fresh Fruit Crisps – not frozen but jarred
Mixes to make:
Soup mix – rinse beans ahead, add dry seasonings
Bread – one loaf size – all dry ingredients minus yeast, add yeast when making (for some reason mixes made up with yeast added don’t do as well for me)
Also plan out meals for months of October, November, and first part of December ahead of time. I’m working on complete menus for July and August right now.
