What are somethings I can cook and freeze for my dh and kids for when i go to the hospital to have the baby?

I am having contractions already and I am only 31 weeks and 3 days. So I am looking to freeze things so that my dh all he has to do is warm it up for the kids. But I am looking at things that I can keep in there for a while so I can start making them now. I am not due until august 9th, but I am trying to get the stuff together now incase I go early although incase I don't I need something that can stay good a while in the freezer. What are somethings I can make and freeze? How long can I freeze it for?

  • you can make basically any kind of casserole and properly stored they last a long time. You could also make lasagna or ziti or even some soups. BUt also you could stock up on chicken patties or chicken nuggets for a quick meal that they can make. Also for breakfast meals you can make homemade waffles or pancakes that they can stick in the toaster. if i think of more i'll post them

  • Spaghetti sauce? He can just boil the pasta and voila! Soups? How old are the kids? Meatloaf freezes well. Chicken a la King and he would just have to do rice. Congrats mama!

  • In addition to the above, quiche freezes really well.

  • Lasagna freezes really well. You can wrap up individual servings and freeze them, so he can warm just what he needs.

  • I didn't have contractions at all with my other 2 babies until I was induced. I keep getting this pain in my side and I keep getting these sharp pains in my private
