Ground chicken breast, with pureed butternut squash, seasoned to be used in tacos/burritos. After this was cooked, I split it into two packages and froze both for future dinners. This wasn't for tonight's dinner, but since I was already browning ground chicken, I figured I'd cook it all and save myself some steps next time.
Baked ziti, with ground chicken breast, pureed yellow squash, and low-fat ricotta and mozzarella. One was for that night's dinner, and I froze the other.

Dinner: Breakfast for dinner. Pumpkin whole grain waffles (these were leftover from the big batch I made over the weekend; I froze two sets of them for future use), egg/egg white spinach and cheese omelets, cut-up apples and pears.
My daughter's plate... she was proud of how she arranged her waffles. :)

Breakfast: Oat bran blueberry applesauce muffins (recipe: Hodgson Mill) and fruit salad. My husband put some chocolate chips on the top of his, but they were really good even w/o the chocolate.
Dinner: We ate dinner at our friend's house, and brought this over: Fresh steamed broccoli and baby carrots, with a buttermilk-ranch dip (with pureed white beans; recipe: Deceptively Delicious).

Apologies for the delinquent posts... I have an injured husband and daughter, which means I'm online less, and cooking less. Lots of leftovers and quick meals here!
Dinner: Pulled chicken (with pureed butternut squash and caulflower; Crockpot; Recipe: Sneaky Chef) on a Ciabatta roll, green beans, and sliced pears.

Breakfast: Pumpkin whole grain waffles (with wheat germ and flax seed), scrambled egg whites with spinach, and sliced pear. I made a double batch of these waffles and froze two breakfast's worth for future mornings.

Before: Eggplant spinach rollatini. I made this a few weeks ago, and froze an extra. I thought it looked pretty neat from the bottom.
Dinner: Eggplant spinach rollatini, whole grain pasta with tomato alfredo sauce, steamed broccoli, and sliced pear.
Breakfast: To-die-for-blueberry muffins (allrecipes.com) with fresh pineapple. I made these with whole wheat pastry flour and some applesauce instead of oil, and they were still yummm.

I didn't actually cook this, but, as I was taking pictures of the pureed broccoli, my daughter wanted in on the action. She displayed a Laughing Cow cheese, and her hand was too cute to resist.
Purees for the freezer: Broccoli. My parents had a big bag of fresh broccoli that was a little past its prime but still usable, and this was the best thing I could think of for it. It was either this, or soup, and this seemed more useful.
Dinner: Rotisserie chicken, wild rice, fresh broccoli, and pears. My MIL brought over dinner, and I promised she'd be featured here. ;)

Lunch: Another batch of garden vegetable soup, this time with mini ravioli.
Dinner: Turkey meatball "parm" sandwiches (with green veggie puree; Recipe: Sneaky chef), fresh baby spinach, and orange slices. These were from a batch of meatballs I'd made a while back and frozen. This evening I did a quick defrost (a last minute doctor's appt prevented making dinner as planned), and threw it together on whole wheat bread with marinara and light mozzarella.
