Hey.... so I've decided that now it's summer, I want to make a bunch of meals that I can freeze for lunches and dinners (I plan on filling up our new deep freezer completely with them!) so that we can have healthy(ier) food to eat for work, AND not spend ten bucks every day on meals.  The problem is... I can only think of so many things because many of the things I regularly make will not freeze well - like potatoes, so I'm going to try the instant ones instead, and even a few of the things on the list I'm going to have to test out to see how they do (quite a few of them I have done before because a couple years ago for xmas - while my dad was still a bachelor and didn't eat well - I made him a huge box full of frozen meals so he would eat better and more regularly).  I plan on making everything homemade, rather than buying premade items.  I'm also going to try to do it the store-bought frozen dinner way for a lot of things (like separating sauces and noodles until you nuke it so they don't get all mushy)

IF YOU HAVE ANY IDEAS, PLEASE POST THEM!  I would really appreciate the help and I would like a wide variety of meals to choose from when I start making the meals.


-lasagna
-enchiladas with spanish rice
-chicken veggie casserole (thingy I make)
-stir fry with rice
-green curry with rice
-onigiri (I've made them with a ground chicken, cashews, onions, and celery with sauce before and they were good)
-spaghetti and meatballs
-bbq meatballs (so we just break a roll and cheese for meatball sandwiches)
-meatloaf and mashed potatoes
-chili
-beef stroganoff
-chicken noodle soup
-eggrolls
-chicken and dumplings
-country fried steak and mashed potatoes (or steamed veggies)
-chicken mixture I use for gyros with hummus (which freezes great!)
-tamale pie
-shepard's pie

We will eat most anything and are not picky at all.  If you have any ideas, that would be awesome!
