That's exactly what I do with left-overs for my MIL who is on her own and has a small appetite.i lay out a number of small boxes like you get from a take-away (well, at least here in UK). I then split the meat, potato or whatever, and veg into each box, keeping the meat, veg etc in separate "piles", and divide any left-over sauce or gravy between the boxes as well. Label each box. Lid on once cold, and straight into her freezer.
That gives her a better variety of meals, and she also has enough there if a friend or friends drop in unexpectedly (MIL also has breathing problems and various other disabilities, in addition to her small appetite).
For cooking on your own, I think this is a great way to be able to use recipes for families. It lets you divide the food into "serves 6" or whatever much more easily.
