Requesting Help

I am needing suggestions for meals that can be prepared and then frozen. Any ideas? I'm wanting to spend an entire day or two next week fixing meals just to put into our deep freezer to pull out and cook as we go. Have you done this before, any words of advice?

Meatloaf, Lasagna, Stuffed Jumbo Pasta Shells... that's all I can think of off the top of my head. My sister did the once a month cook thing and froze all of her stuff. I'll have to ask her what was good!

I'm planning a WFMW post on this, my mom and I have spent the last six months researching and experimenting. I don't have the time to detail it all, but there is quite a lot of recipes we've found that work well.

Meats like ribs and brisket freeze very well, as well as chicken. That's all I can think of off the top of my head, but hopefully in the next month I'll have everything in order.

I'm also making my brother a cookbook for a Christmas present, so I need to have it all figured out by then at the latest!

I just did a post about the cooking I did this week for the next month. I prepared a few casseroles, some crock pot soups, and then the making's for several more meals. For most of our meals, I prepare the meat and fresh produce and then freeze it in the deep freezer in plastic bags or reusable storage containers. Then on the day we are scheduled to have that meal we thaw our meat and veggies and add pasta, rice, or whatever goes with them. I plan to do a post in the next day or two with the recipes for some of the meals that I plan that way....hopefully that will be helpful! I love preparing food this way!
