Cooking Up a Storm

In preparation for Baby H’s arrival, I decided it would be a good idea to stock our freezer with a bunch of ready-to-go meals so I don’t have to worry about meal planning and finding time to make dinner in the midst of what I assume will be a chaotic, sleep-deprived state.

After busting my butt the past couple of weekends and standing until my feet looked like over-inflated balloons, I finally finished tonight! My freezer is stocked and everything is labeled with re-heating instructions.

It was a little bit challenging coming up with ideas for dairy-free freezer meals, but I think I managed pretty well with the following meals…

Honey-Lime Chicken
Spaghetti Sauce
Sloppy Joe Mix
Lasagna (for Jason, of course!)
Lentil & Ham Soup
Enchiladas (no cheese for me, please!)
Shepherd’s Pie
Chicken Parmesan (I’ll just have the breaded chicken and marinara, no parmesan)
Roast Beef Sliders/Melts
…And I also made a batch of chocolate chip banana muffins to throw in the freezer, because after everything else, why not some of those too?

I’m ready to stop doing dishes and start enjoying some of those meals! Just another thing to look forward to at the end of this month, right? 🙂
