Soups, stews, and chili are easy to make in big quantities and freeze well. I've also make things like stir fry and frozen the remainders in portions. I also make spaghetti sauce and pasta dishes and frozen them in portions.

I too make big batches of things and freeze them.
Often, something I'll eat hubby has no desire to share, so it's our solution.
Alternately, things he wants for himself get frozen, as well, now that he's in school.

We've frozen:

Vegetarian (and regular) shepherd's pie
Vegetarian (and regular) chili
Lamb Stew
Turkey Vegetable Soup
Cabbage Rolls
Meat balls

Big batches of beans, rice, etc., can also be cooked, divided and frozen, for an add-in to recipes, saving the pre-packaged, salt-laden varieties. Even pasta, if it's part of your menu, can be frozen.

I used to get individual foil containers and put the items in those, but they're no good in a microwave, so you'd have to be aware of that. I often use vacuum sealing as a method of putting things away, too.

A slow cooker/crock pot can be your friend - get it going in the morning; you'll come home to a big batch of something; then you have extra to freeze for future.

I keep simple things like salads and soup stuff around. Those are usually my go-to items. I will make something like a mediterranean salad with rice and stuff and portion it out for a few days.
