    I find some snacks (cupcakes, muffins, cakes, piklets) to be ok once frozen/thawed. Or things that need to be baked and go straight into the oven (scrolls, biscuits, pies).

    But I don't freeze meals as such- I find freezing/thawing changes the taste.

    At the moment I have some bolognese sauce, lasagna, Mexican beans & rice (toddler portions), and lamb kofta.

    My plan is to get the freezer well stocked before this baby comes - due in 3 weeks! Planning to do:

    Homemade pies
    Curried sausages & rice
    Slow cooked stew
    Con carne
    Chicken curry
    Pasta bake
    ... And whatever else my mum adds when she comes to help!

    Wow there are some great ideas here.

    I tend to freeze things that are not yet cooked (apart from spag Bol and the like) and then it's just a quick cook from there.

    Yesterday I made nearly 200 beef & zucchini meatballs for DS to freeze and of course he has now decided he no longer likes them

    Today I'll also be adding pizza dough, pizza sauce and chicken & cannellini bean nuggets.

    There are some awesome suggestions here. I wish I had a bigger freezer!

    Mine currently has:
    chestnut soup
    Italian lamb casserole
    chicken hotpot
    beef kofta in curry sauce
    vegetable curry
    chicken Madras
    Thai chicken curry

    I also chop up and freeze a lot of fresh fruit (bananas, strawberries, mango, etc). That way, I can easily throw it in the blender with a bit of Greek yoghurt or mineral water and have an easy smoothie.

    Next week I'm restocking by making:
    pumpkin soup
    minestrone
    zucchini, potato & feta soup
    chicken, olive & preserved lemon tagine

    It's this recipe from the Taste website. It's yummy - I cut it up small to give to the kids as a treat.

    I have:
    Spag bol (veggie)
    Various Soups
    Sugar free muffins for bub
    Pancakes for DS
    Macaroni cheese (healthy one with veggies in)
    Curry

    Usually have more but we're trying to clear the freezer as moving interstate soon.

    I've never noticed that freezing things changes the taste....unless I haven't stored them correctly or left it in there too long and it gets freezer burn! Lucky for me as would be lost without my quick freezer meals when bub wants to be held constantly making chopping and cooking impossible!
