Nearly 34weeks here and though I had better start getting organized by baking some easy defrost dinners for those first few weeks and months when time is short.
I made a pasta bake tonight and portioned and froze.
I'm thinking that I need some inspiration for other things to stash away in preparation.
So ladies, hit me with what you put into your freezer in preparation for bub arriving!

Honey mustard chicken
I also baked a stack of sweet and savoury muffins so there were some easy snacks/morning tea etc to pull out.

Great idea OP. I did bulk cooking & freezing when I was 38w and I still have some meals left, DD is nearly 12wks old.
Soups- pea & ham, chicken laksa, chicken & veg.
Risottos- chicken & mushroom, pumpkin & zucchini, prawn.
I stored the portions in vac sealed bags so I could fit it all in my freezer

You can also bulk cook raw ingredients and slow cook them! Just put the raw meat in the bag with vege and sauce etc and freeze. Life changing.
