    My sister is preggers and due at the start of October. I want to make her a bunch of meals that I can just freeze and they can just be poped in the microwave or oven and reheated. I just dont know what to make!! All I have come up with so far is:

    Lasagna
    Chili

    So if you have any easy reheat recipes that heat well I would really appreciate it!!! Thanks ladies!

      Hmmm... most italian dishes freeze well (stuffed shells, eggplant rolatini). You could just make a big thing of homemade meat sauce to go with some quick to make pasta. Soups are a great idea and pretty easy to make. If they like Mexican, you could freeze a tray of enchiladas or smothered burritos to go in the oven. I know I can think of more...

      This is the website of a place nearby my house. You can go and make meals, you freeze them, and then you cook them! So, all of these meal ideas can be frozen and made at a later date.

        I immediately thought of lasagna!

        what about some type of casserole?

        I'm really not a good cook, I don't know why I think I can give advice on cooking, lol!

              Well everyone already mentioned what I would suggest!

              I don't know if you already posted this and I missed it, but what is she having (sex)? Names?

              That's exciting. I'll have to remember to do that. Freeze meals ahead of time, or else we will be ordering A LOT of take out!
