OR! A few homemade frozen meals.
I feel kind of silly reviving an old thread but I didn't see any other relevant ones when I searched!
I have an omni friend who is having a baby this month and I offered to cook up a few meals for her and her partner. She's super excited about it, which is awesome. We've cooked for each other a few times and she says she loves the challenge of cooking vegan food and they have always liked the food I've cooked, so whether they'll eat vegan food isn't a worry. The only thing her partner won't eat is eggplant. Whew!
What I'm wondering is what sort of things would be best? They don't have a microwave, but neither do I, so I'm not making anything that can't be heated on the stovetop or in an oven, with or without defrosting. They both love curries and dals and soups.
I guess my question is: does anyone who has kids have any suggestions for things that freeze and reheat well that they would have liked the first few weeks?
So far I've made dal makhani and aloo palak and am planning on making red beans in gravy and a Thai red curry. Maybe a chili?
