Freezer Meals Creation Station 1

With baby #2 on the way I understand the need to plan ahead with regard to meals. Not only is it difficult to cook with a baby,(or find the energy to cook) but the basic idea of braving the grocery store with an energetic toddler and a newborn in cold and flu season has me trembling in my boots. So... here goes nothing. :)

Here is a listing of the recipes. They can be found individually in this blog too but this seems easier.

Plain tomato sauce
Cheesy Potatoes
Fiesta casserole
Peanutbutter chicken
Freezer chicken parmesan
Chocolate Chip Pumpkin Waffles
Pizza Rollups
Pesto Ricotta Stuffed Shells
Multi-pasta Cavatelli
Baked Ziti
Cheesy Beans and Rice
