Veg lasagne too for those nights when you feel a little guilty about lack of veggies, freeze into single serve slices. I use ziplock bags instead of plastic containers as it takes up less space, defrost into a bowl and heat up.

loving this thread! I've got a month to due date, and have been cooking up a storm, so more ideas are welcomed! Lots of your ideas are the same as mine, I do like the idea of pre-made toastie sandwiches in loaf form, genius!
We have been in the habit of always baking a double batch of cookies or cakes when we do make them, then slicing/freezing the second batch. Instant cake to have with some tea! Also, we bought a vacuum packer, which is brilliant, we use it for everything, even soups. We just pre-freeze any squidgy stuff (lasagne, soups, chili con carne etc) in little lunch boxes, then when frozen solid, pop them out into the vacuum packing bags and pack them like that. We also pre-marinate meats and vac pack them too.
I have found that biriyanis are good too - a whole meals in a bowl and they seem to freeze pretty well.
DH and I also got into some amish style home preserving of our tomato glut, and made some pre-flavoured tomato pasta sauce bases that are preserved old fashioned style in glass jars (so no freezer needed). Oh dear... we're starting to sound a bit strange I think!!
I can not wait to start maternity leave on Monday. I am not a cleaning nester, but by god I am a cooking nester and a crafting nester with all those days to fill, the freezer is going to be overflowing!!

It's so funny I was just Googling ideas for meals to freeze when I go on maternity leave next week and here's a thread full of awesome suggestions!
I don't know if anyone has already mentioned this one but also shepherds pie is good to make and freeze. It's a really hearty meal for a cold winters night given that we're all having winter bubs in here
