So far we have decided to cook and freeze for dinners:
- meatloaf slices (just add fresh veggies and/or salad)
- chicken breast slices (for a main dish, tostados, salad toppings and stir fry)
- rice (to combine with frozen cooked chicken and Trader Joe's stir fry veggies)
- soup & chili
We will also pick up a frozen pizza and perhaps a ready made quiche, etc.
For breakfast I am trying out recipes for:
- baked oatmeal muffin cups
- egg bake muffin cups
Then there will be toast/bagels/pumpkin muffins plus peanut butter
For lunches we will probably stick to sandwiches & raw veggies/fruit. Also frozen mac n cheese and veggie burgers.
The rest of the plan is to prepare double meals the 4 evenings before and have them ready in the frig as leftovers. As I recall I don't eat much those first few days (the joy of painkillers) but Hubby has even more to do than after I start feeling better.
I'm also going to stock up on household paper goods, etc. so he doesn't have to shop much.
