What are some good, healthy recipes that freeze and reheat well?

I am in my last month of pregnancy. I am going to be quite busy and exhausted for at least the first month that the baby arrives and cooking will be the last thing I want to do. I wanted to have some home cooked things pre-made in the freezer and ready to reheat for convenience. I really want to stay away from ordering in so much. That gets expensive and is not very healthy. I’m not a health nut, I just want to stay reasonable. Your suggestions and any recipes you may have would be a GREAT help! Thanks!!

    If you could make a big batch of spaghetti meat sauce and freeze it in 3 or 4 servings bags, that Will help simplify things.
    I made several shepherd’s pie’s for my daughter- in- law and put them in her freezer.
    I made a big batch of chicken stews and again froze it in smaller servings.
    spinach Lasagna can be made ahead and frozen in smaller portions.
    I also made Italian meat balls and stored them in freezer bags of ten per bag, then one only needs to add some instant rice to have a good meal.
    I hope these suggestions help you.
    I wish you good luck with your little one!

    Some very good recipe to freeze are stuffed green peppers made with ground hamburger, with ground pork, or a combination of ground hamburger and pork, I have even made them with chicken. The way I do it is.

    Stuffed Bell Peppers
    As many green papers as you need or want to freeze
    add one egg for every pound of meat.
    Add your bread crumbs, or you can also use rice
    salt and pepper to tastee
    garlic to tast
    Chopped onions

    Wrap in plastic or better yet use freezer paper label and freeze.

    When you are ready to use them bake in oven at 350 until done.

    You can also use a slow cooker on low add some broth to the bottom of your slow cooker and cook for 6hr.

    Enjoy them.

    Congratulations on your newest addition to your family! Being prepared with healthy, easy meals is smart, economical and such a time saver! I’m going to list my favorite recipes that I have frozen before so they are truly time tested and reheat well with the same wonderful taste
    Marinara Sauce is a quick and easy, can be made into big batches and then seperated out for the quantity you need for a meal. I also make homemade Pesto and garlic herb butter and put them into ice cube trays for a quick sauce. I like buying chicken breasts and dusting them in seasoned flour, egg wash and Panko breadcrumbs and freeze them for a quick meal during the week. I pull them out the night before and they are thawed and ready to cook however you like them the next night. I love Chicken/Beef Stew, Chicken/Italian Sausages with peppers and onions, Beef Stroganoff, Turkey/Beef Chili, Pork/Chicken or Beef Stir fry, BBQ Pulled Pork or Beef, seafood and fish are quickly cooked so I don’t recommend freezing them unless they are mixed into a complex recipe like crab cakes, those freeze pretty well. Par-cooking might help you as well…….you could always cook your proteins half way, then freeze them and pull them out to thaw that morning for whatever fresh meal you want to make that night. I hope these ideas help you to create a menu that you and your family enjoy, will save you time and money. May God Bless your new Baby!
