Ashley posted that she is going to do premade meals for the freezer so she doesn't have to cook right after delivery.

I made chicken soup, meatloaf, and pasta sauce. I know I did more then that, but can't remember what right now.

The meatloaf was good. I just premixed the meat, shaped it, then froze it in a freezer bag. When I was ready to make it, I took it out and let it defrost before cooking. It was yummy. My favorite was the chicken soup though. I make Italian wedding soup, which has the tiny meatballs in it. That is a time consuming meal to prepare. So it was SO nice to have it all done and I only had to defrost the soup and make the macaroni.

I am thinking some lasagna, tator tot hotdish, baked spaghetti, and I should do some chicken pot pie. I don't really know what else I should make. I'll have a few pizzas in the freezer so if we need something in a snap we've got it. Hopefully we'll get a grill and we can do lots of food out on the grill...that's always easy.

I got some aluminum foil today and a few extra groceries. I think that tomorrow I might make some freezer meals! Yay!!! I need to get some things done soon because Harper will be here in a few weeks!

I had fun preparing meals to go in the freezer. I remember thinking as I put a meal in, "when I take this out, my little guy will be here." Have fun.

I'm pretty sure that I'll get some meals cooked today. It's kinda chilly out again today so it would be perfect for baking and warming up the house.

I might even making two more loaves of zucchini bread to freeze.

Mmm, zucchini bread. I love freezing that too. It tastes just as good when you pull it out and defrost it :)

You know, my banana and zucchini bread always seem a little dry to me when I defrost them. How are you wrapping yours? Maybe I'm not preparing them for the freezer properly...

I just wrap it is saran wrap, then put it in a large bag. I make sure I squeeze out as much air as possible before sealing the bag.
