When I was cooking for my friend 6 wks after she had her baby, I made a big pot of chili and froze it in single-serving containers (glass, because you want to watch out for BPA in plastics). That worked really well.

What about a beef stew or hearty soup?  You can take it over with a loaf of french bread, and leftovers can be portioned out and frozen pretty easily.

If she’s BFng, nothing spicey! Beans will also give the baby gas, so something more bland is probably better. Chicken and dumplings? Any good casseroles you make? Potroast and veggies is always good too.

Enchiladas freeze well

How about a sausage, onion, and pepper rice dish? Like a jambalaya http://www.zatarains.com/ makes a good rice box.

Since its so warm, giving them something fresh would be great too to eat righ away such as a fruit salad.

egg dishes like fritattas, quiches, stratas freeze well too

If they like meatloaf, that’s really easy to freeze.  You mix it up, press it into a loaf pan, then take it out and wrap it up and freeze it.  You could also marinate some chicken and then freeze it.

Ok, how about pasta salad?  It doesn’t freeze, but it will keep in the fridge for several days.

What about a chicken salad with some croissants? My aunt made her famous one recently for my brother and SIL when they had my niece. It would be a good sandwich, go to when they need to eat something fast.

you could also make some really nice burgers, they freeze extremely well, can be bbqed or just heated in microwave/ pan.
