Nope. I've started freezing this month. We'll eat in the order they went in. So far, I've made lasagna, meatloaf, vanilla cranberry bread and lemon flax waffles.

Re: Stocking your freezer?

In the past I've found that freezer meals are great for the rest of my family, but when baby arrives I prefer to graze than eat full meals. I'm not sure if it's lack of sleep, or hormonal food aversions or what, but I'm never a picky eater until I'm preggo or have just given birth.

My last baby also suffered from allergies, and since I was bfing, I was pretty restricted on what I could eat until we figured out what he was allergic too.

In the past, I used some books from the library that spell out how to make a ton of freezer meals in a day.

We're limited on freezer space so we won't be able to do much, but after reading this thread, I'm definitely freezing a high-protein spinach lasagna that's the BEST EVER and the pumpkin bread/muffins from this cookbook.

Thank you for the inspiration, mamas!

Yikes I probably should start thinking about this

Re: Stocking your freezer?

I make crockpot yogurt and the kids eat a TON of it - especially heading in to spring and summer. I did some googling and read about freezing cubes of it in ice cube trays for smoothies, which sounded amazing - stock up/freeze fruits and berries (we grow strawberries and blackberries so I won't buy those most likely) and those are a great snack/mini meal, even for immediately postpartum. I've filled one gallon freezer bag so far (probably 2/3 gallon of actual yogurt volume) and am hoping to have several gallon bags done before baby comes. I stashed another banana bread loaf in the freezer today (kids' new favorite) and have yogurt culturing overnight tonight to start freezing another batch.
