    I also found chopping up fruit and some veg sticks each week was so handy. And I also chopped cheese and made snack packs of cheese & crackers. Easy to eat on the go / one handed, no prep, and doesnt matter if you have to keep coming back to it.

    I know you want to freeze meals but honestly I would also invest in a slow cooker.. I love mine and use it so much .. its so easy to just throw everything into the bowl and let it cook all day... im buying one for my DS and his Gf who are due in May.

    Might be a silly question, but do you cook everything before freezing it? Even lasagne etc?

    For a summer bub get 2-person serves of meat, chicken kebabs, fish, marinate and freeze sealed in ziplok bags. The just take out in the morning and bbq that night served with prepack salad.

    I did zucchini slice and cooked then froze in the foil trays with the cardboard lids (from the foil /wrap section of woolies). They were the perfect size for 2 people. I cooked lid off and reheated in the oven with lid on.

    I also chopped up lots of chicken fillets and beef into strips for stir frys, cubes for curries etc.

    My biggest tip beyond freezing is to start your evening meal preparation as soon as you finish breakfast. Pull things out of freezer, chop veg, pull rice cooker out etc. Then come dinner time everything left to do can happen one-handed.

    Some fantastic ideas here ladies - keep them coming!

    Our slow cooker got damaged in storage so I'm too afraid to use it now. Nice big dent right next to the control knob
