    Pumkpin is also a great stuffing for pasta shells, or in veggie lasagna, just mix the puree with a bit of ricotta. Mmmmm...

    I make a lot of the same dishes as those above. I'll add Shepard's pie and soups of any kind.

    Shepherd's pie is another good one! Thanks for reminding me!

    If I recall correctly, I did baked ziti, a broccoli cheddar rice bake (you could add chicken), mac & cheese, and chili. Don't forget other meals too! One of the women here (jollysd11) made breakfast burritos. I'd make some baked oatmeal next time. Check out Jackie's (alwayssmile) blog for a recipe Cooking with Mrs Sea Monster: Recipes leading up to V-Day I've made some different variations of that recipe and they've all been delicious and freeze very well.

    Meatloaf and quiche freeze well, too. I like to put meatloaf in muffin tins, so they're already serving-sized.

    Thanks for the plug Erin! lol

    Now that I know that we're not moving in December or January, I need to start listing meals to freeze and start making them!

    Last time I did some soups, lots of pancakes and waffles, mini meatloaves, quiche, lasagna, chicken pot pie, muffins, and a few casseroles. I really didn't think through about all the times I would need a snack or a meal just for me, so I plan on making breakfast burritos like Joy did, more muffin variety, and to store foods in small proportions (not just family meals in large containers like I did).

    Spacers, I'm obsessed with pumpkin, so I think on an upcoming menu I might have to do stuffed shells adding pumpkin.

    ETA: And I should think through meals that I can freeze in toddler proportions too. Oh boy.

    I did lots of cooking before I had my youngest in June. It is sure nice in the week after baby!

    Pancakes and muffins for quick breakfasts for the kids
    Cookies and loaves for something yummy (cinnamon and choc zucchini)
    Pre-made spaghetti, chili, shepherds pie, and meat loaf
    And I bought some easy frozen stuff like pizza, lasagna, perogies when I found them on sale for really lazy meals

    My biggest time saver was pre-cooking meat. I cooked up lots a ground beef, grilled and sliced chicken for pastas, salads, etc, and cooked up a turkey then packages up the meat for casseroles, pot pie, sandwiches, or to eat plain with veggies.
