Q: We are expecting twins in March next year and while we live here in Boston our family are all back home in Australia which means we won't get all of that great help most couples do with newborns. Some advice I have been given recently to help with this situation is to freeze meals/dinners ahead of time since I won't have family bringing over meals to help us. (continued...)

I love cooking so this won't be a problem and I actually think this is very good advice (I plan to start cooking double of everything and then freeze the half we don't eat that night) but my issue is that I am somebody who loves to cook with fresh and local ingredients and therefore am not familiar with freezing 'dinners'...my questions is whether you/your readers have any tips on what is best to freeze (I've been told casseroles/stews) and whether your readers have recipe suggestions (tried and proven!!) and/or cook book suggestions? Any other tips greatly appreciated.
Editor: I am always on the lookout for good things to make and freeze so I'm looking forward to hearing readers' ideas. My favorite things to freeze are bolognese sauce, chili, sweet potato chowder and shredded chicken or pork butt that I make in the crockpot.
The Kitchn has some good tips in this post, Recipes that Freeze Well.
