Welcome to DC. When I go to my parents, I cook for 3-6 weeks (freezer stuff). I make:

1. Soups
2. Meatballs
3. Spaghetti sauce
4. Meatloaf
5. Lasagne
6. Individual chicken pot pies

This is a great place to from which to get ideas:

i want to eat at cws's or jenny's house. before or after freezing.

welcome, el violin.

anything you see in the freezer aisle in suermarkets most often can be made at home. just ask. we'll have recipes.

beware that chief longeilwnd guy, though. he is normally frozen this time of year, so take that into account.
