I'm doing a bit of this, myself, right now. Basically making up double/triple size dinners for a few weeks and freezing whatever we won't eat that night. Some of the things I'm making are:
- Chickpea & Chorizo soup. Regular plastic freezer container.
- Black beans & rice. Plastic container. Good on it's own, as filling for burritos, or as stuffing for eggplants or capsicum. You can actually pre-fill the capsicum and freeze that way, too.
- Chicken & veg korma. Plastic container.
- Chicken, eggplant, lentil casserole. Plastic container.
- Tuna & 5 veg mornay (sorta) with pasta. Freezing this in an oven-ready foil container as the pasta holds up better when put straight in the oven, rather than defrosted, then baked.
- Pre-grilled sausages. Wrapped in plastic & foil. Though this is mostly due to husband absentmindedly freezing a whole 2 kg of sausages together without separating, so we have to cook them all up at once.
- Curried sausages (see above). Plastic container.
- Summer squash bisque. Plastic container.
- Potato-leek soup. Plastic container.
- Basil-almond pesto. Small plastic cubes we used to use for homemade babyfood. Perfect amount for a quick steamed veg & pasta dinner.
- Salmon patties. Separated with freezer paper and stacked in plastic container.
- Packets of (homemade) pre-marinated & cooked chicken breast, thigh, sliced steak, pork, etc for various purposes, packed in the sauce. So this way I can just pop some rice or noodles on, quickly stirfry some appropriate veggies and just toss in the thawed meat/sauce for the world's easiest stir-fries and noodle bowls. Also great for throwing tacos or wraps together without the mess of meat prep, or adding a meat component to a dinner salad.
Anyway, that's the list I've been brainstorming. Hope something appeals
