My mother has been diagnosed with cancer and is having surgery. She's 9 hours away, and I need to go. Obviously I can't take the kids, they are in school and it's not logistically possible. I may be gone a week or a month. I just don't know.
My SO can't cook, so I need meals I can Pre cook and freeze for them. I need to organize things as best as possible. Any thoughts or ideas? Anyone else go through something similar and has advice on the best way to prepare my family?
Teach him how to use a slow cooker and pre-make the meals in gallon sized freezer bags. Lasagna and meatloaf are also good freezer meals.

I'm so sorry to hear about your mom. I hope everything turns out OK. She's lucky to have a devoted child who will be by her side in her time of need. As for S/O & the kids, can he BBQ? Does he have a mom, aunt or sister nearby who can help out? I'm no Rachel Ray in the kitchen, so I can't think of anything more to add to what JeremysMom said. I'm sure they will be fine. Keep some Chef Boyardee & soups on hand for a quick, easy meal. Please keep us posted on your mom too. Take care.

First, I am sorry your Mom is sick and I hope for a speedy recovery.
Next. Hit Up Pinterest! Here this woman prepares 34 meals in two hours that she puts in the freezer and then in the mornings she pops them in the crock pot.Your hubby can't go wrong with pulling a dinner out of te freezer and sticking it in the crockpot, unless he forgets to turn it on. Here are 10 freezer meals, you just write instructions right on the package.
