Can You Help Me Find Meals That Freeze Well?

(Image credit: Apartment Therapy)

Q: A friend has a very sick family member, and I’d like to make her family a meal to help during this difficult time. When one of my loved ones passed away this spring, my family really, really appreciated all of the food everyone brought for us, but we had to throw some away — it was just too much.

So it would be great if I could make them a meal that could be either eaten immediately or frozen for a couple of weeks. I won’t have the time to personally test out how well the dish freezes/thaws, so any of your steadfast and reliable suggestions would be much appreciated. I don’t think there are any dietary restrictions. Thank you!

Soups, stews, and chilis freeze particularly well, and are always a nice meal as we slide into the cooler temperatures of autumn. Here are some recipe suggestions that freeze well if not eaten immediately:
