    I'm still undecided as to whether or not to do this but have been thinking of meals just incase! So far iv thought:

    Spag Bol
    Chilli
    Shepherds pie
    Cottage pie
    Fajita mix
    Curry




    That's all I can think so far xx

    This is what I'm gonna do when I'm on mat leave, cook up lots of SW meals and freeze them. Don't forget soups and casseroles too. We always cook meals for 4 then freeze them down! We freeze everything!!

    Also, someone suggested to me throwing all the uncooked ingredients needed for a slow cooker meal in a freezer bag, so in the morning you just dump the contents in the slow cooker with the liquids and your good to go! I thought this was a great idea so we cab continue to eat well when were both exhausted!

    I use plastic tubs then microwave them

    I use plastic tubs (10 for £1 @the pound shop)
    But we recently had a new fridgefreezer and its so small!!
    I've bought a lot of those pasta sachets (mugshots etc) and will be having those quite often I think lol

    we did thia when ds 1 arrived and it was amazing....knowing you could have a proper meal without cooking was heaven. spesh for the firat week or so when youre fumbling through and youre rired and visitors are never ending. with ds2 we didnt have time and we felt it and the amount of chicken escaloped we had was silly z

    Ooooo, I've never thought of this but sounds like such a good idea. I was just planning to live on packet salads and Special K to kick start the diet but this sounds much more appealing x

    I did this and made what I thought was loads. However it only lasted a week or so. I was quite poorly after having my DS2 so I pulled in help from family and my big sis who cooks really good home cooking, cooked for us all and I gave her the money for all the food (there are 7 of us so couldn't let her foot the bill)!

    Highly recommend that you prepare ladies. No one can describe just how crazy and freaking tiring the first few weeks are, you need to make sure you're eating right other wise you'll be totally knackered! Do it girls, get cooking. Xx

    I need to do this, I'm hoping I'm going to suddenly find I have loads of time on my hands in the last few weeks when I'm on maternity leave and all the baby bits are sorted! Xxx

    OMG what a fab idea I would never have thought of it. My oh doesn't cook at all so this will really help!

    Thanks for the thread
