Soups or chili

Bierox/bierocks (tip: adding shredded swiss cheese makes it stick together better)

Enchiladas and tamale pie were huge hits with us.  We got too much lasagne in additon to the lasagne we made!

Baked Ziti, lasagne, and/or basically any kind of casserole.  All very filling, all freeze well, and all make great easy leftovers too.

Just be careful if she’s breastfeeding! Certain veggies will make it a not so nice night for the baby with gas!

Roast beef freezes well too!

I agree with the casserole/baked pasta route. Enchiladas, baked ziti, chiken and whatever, stews (withOUT potatoes since they do not reheat nicely) would all be super easy.

We often freeze lasagna, sheperd’s pie, rice bowls, stuffed chiken breasts, and chicken devine.

Cook’s Illustrated Magazine did an entire special issue on make-ahead-and-freeze meals. I have a copy and many of the recipes sound wonderful. I am going to make some of these for after our birth. You can order a copy of the issue here: http://www.cooksillustrated.com/bookstore/detail.asp?PID=459
