New parent food planning

This past week Bob and I have been doing a little prep work for our return home after the baby is born. One of the main things you always hear is that, during that initial time after the baby is home, food is one of the last things you want to think about as a new parent.

So, we've made a couple of meals with that in mind. So far we've made this quinoa broccoli casserole and this stuffed manicotti - both Pinterest finds. Both were yumm-o. The quinoa casserole works as a main dish with a bag o' salad, or as a side. The manicotti was awesome. We added turkey sausage to the sauce, which was a good choice.

I purchased some foil baking pans and we made sure to fill one of those with half of the recipe each time. We wrap each one up and label it with cooking instructions and stick it in the freezer. It's worked out perfectly leaving us with fewer leftovers to feel bad about not eating by the end of the week and easy meals for the (not so distant) future.

Any suggestions for other meals to freeze for future eating?
