    Ham and cheese is fine to freeze. Its not the most environmentally friendly option, but I freeze mine in individual small freezer bags with a knot tied in it. Cling wrap is not as good as moisture gets in. You could also freeze in plastic containers if you had enough to go around.

    I'm doing a cook up tomorrow. Slow cooked butter chicken, banana bread, another slow cooked meal over night and then sandwiches. I'll also do sausage rolls and mini quiches for lunch box snacks.

    Hopefully in the next week I will get a head start on school snacks. My sister has just given me her 6 foot freezer. Well we will pick it up soon. My freezer is pretty full at the moment so I am excited about all that freezer space.

    Usual freezer meals like spag sauce, lasagne, taco/mexican mince, cottage pie, soup, casseroles.
    My oldest is against sandwiches for lunch so I make and freeze scrolls, puff pastry pinwheels and mini muffin quiches.
    I also bake at least twice a week.

    I freeze wraps and sandwiches for the week. Usually chicken and cheese and ham and cheese. I poach chicken breasts for sandwiches/ wraps.

    I also freeze either a batch of muffins/ banana bread/ pikelets/slices for lunchbox snacks.I have a few containers with pre-chopped fruit and carrot sticks in zip-lock bags ready for lunch boxes, along with zip-locked pop-corn and rice crackers.

    Left-overs are frozen in small containers, ready for DH and I to take for lunches. I also have a stock of things like rice pouches and salmon and tuna tins on hand as a back-up.

    I pack all of our lunch boxes the night before so mornings aren't as rushed.

    For dinners, I meal plan on weekends and freeze ahead a couple of meals, for other meals, I pre-chop vegetables so they are ready to go.

    For example for the coming week, I have a frittata, sweet potato soup and pasta sauce in the freezer along with pre- chopped stir fry meat and veges. I also pre-prepared a lemon, herb and Parmesan crumb for baked fish later in the week and froze it in a zip-lock bag. Tomorrow I will slow cook corned beef and have veges chopped ready to throw in slow cooker before I leave for work. I keep things like steam fresh veges, rice pouches, cous cous and kestrel potatoes which can be quickly steamed in microwave as quick and easy back-up sides for evening meals.

    After eight years of part-time working, I've recently returned to full-time work and if I don't do meal prep and/or planning on the weekend it's much more hectic during the week.
