I just made rh, my first yom tov. Food went over pretty well.

We won't be home first days yk but hopefully second days. I work full time and have a lot of little kids so what I did was every day the week before yt I made and froze a few things, and just made a few things fresh.

I want to change things up a bit. Besides for meat and soup, what else freezes well? Recipes for fairly simple dishes to serve for yt? We have acid reflux so no fruit, no chocolate unless it can be subbed out, no tomato products unless very minor.

Any kugel. Potato, apple, zucchini, squash. You can freeze raw and bake before needed. Any puff pastry dish. Frank's n blanks, knishes, egg rolls. Freeze raw. Of course cookies, cakes, pies.

My orzo was not a hit rh. My experience lukshen kugel tastes like paper from the freezer. Interesting idea to use for lo mein! I like that.

Did you use pasta orzo like from Ronzoni, or egg noodle orzo? Did you heat it until it was really hot and steaming?

Some Jewish brand. It wasn't frozen and it tasted good to me, kids just not fans of orzo I guess.

If you do stuffed cabbage for ST, that freezes amazing.
Eggplant dishes freeze well. For babaganoush, freeze before adding mayo
Salad dressings don’t freeze well but can be made in advance. Techina freezes great
Some things last a long time so can be done in advanced. All pickled veggies, many dips…
I’m going anonymously only bc some ppl will know me based on what I wrote

I prep shnitzel and freeze in a single layer on a cookie sheet.

Cook roast, cool overnight in fridge, slice and then freeze in sauce.

Challah, chicken soup, kneidlach all good to freeze

Apple crisp. Zucchini bread. I have frozen those successfully.

Potato knishes (puff pastry filled with instant mashed potatoes)

Potato kugel

Stuffed cabbage (raw) and froze sauce separately. The baked together for like 6 hours and it was delicious.

So far I have in freezer:
Orzo with veggies
Cabbage and noodles
Puff pastry potato puffs with pastrami
Sweet potato muffins
Carrot muffins
Apple crisp muffins(these I froze raw and will just pop into oven to bake right before YT)
Cakes and cookies
Desserts (ice cream, sorbet…)
3 diff soups
Roasts
What’s left to make right before YT is
Fish, veggie side dishes, both my entrees for the day meals too.
This was all hard work:) but I want to be able to enjoy my actual YT and not cook once YT starts!
