Ok, so planning ahead. When I start mat leave - I'll hopefully have a few weeks up my sleeve and I plan on cooking up and freezing some food.
So far I think I'll do:
Sweet potato soup
Bolognese sauce - for spaghetti & lasagne
Chilli con carne
Does anyone else have some more to add to these? I'm up for ideas!

You can't go wrong with lasagne, freeze it in single meal sized portions instead of a whole tray. Beauuuutiful!

Savoury muffins..good for a quick lunch or snack that you can defrost in the microwave.
Thai green chicken curry (do it fairly mild in case you are breast feeding and spicy doesn't agree with bub)

Pie filling! Taste website has a yummy country chicken and veg pie one which you can make up and freeze and worry about assembling the pie on the night you want to eat it. Pot pies in ramekins is even easier just chuck frozen puff pastry on top!
butter chicken is one I made as well when I was nesting
I went to a wholesale butcher and filled my freezer with meat. It's always easy to do meat ( get hubby to BBQ ) and salad or veggies... Even frozen veggies if its hard to get fresh ones from the shops.
i loved that special time getting organized ... Enjoy it

Thank you ladies!
I just had a chicken pie for lunch & was thinking that pie filling would be good too!

Porcupine meatballs, chicken tonight meals, and tuna mornays, curried sausages (altho if breastfeeding not a good idea for you, bubs mag have a numbet 2 explosion!)
Chicken and sweetcorn soups, leek potato and bacon soups freeze well too
I made 7 weeks worth of the above plus lasagnes :-)
Lifesavers! I made another 7 weeks worth before DH went back to work so it was easy to deal with two kids in the evenings lol

OP I am expecting bub #2 at the end of June and will be stocking up the freezer with at least a month worth of meals including lasagne, soup, Beef Goulash, quiche plus a whole heap of food for my toddler like savoury muffins, mini pancakes, veggie slice, homemade sausage rolls and meatballs. I also plan on stocking up on meat, frozen veggies and pantry staples that can be used to create a meal without having to go to the shop. Probably will use my slow cooker a lot too.
