Sophie just reminded me..I made the Slowcooker Vegetable Curry stew from Sparkpeople (I believe it was a Chef Meg recipe) and although I'm not a huge fan of curry, the stew was excellent and froze well. You could use Claire's suggestion for the rice and put the stew over the rice. This would be an especially good meal for the fall/winter months since the spices warm you up from the inside out. :O)

I make a big batch of rice, separate it into portions (a sandwich bag hold 2 portions) and freeze them. I make roasts and chickens with different herb rubs and separate them into portion sized freezer pkgs. when I'm ready to eat I pull out some rice, meat and frozen veggies. Tah Dah!
There's a team based on batch cooking that will give you a ton of ideas.

There is a great recipe on sparkrecipes for sweet potato and black bean burritos that freeze beautifully. I wrap them in plastic wrap and then again in foil and put in a freezer bag. Then I can pull them out when I want them. I put salsa on top and bake in a 350 oven till heated through.
I also make chile and freeze in individual servings.
I find I tend to buy pre-packaged meals to save time. I need to break this habit and prepare my own meals from home. What I'd like to be able to do is prepare meals I can freeze for later. Any ideas for Homemade Frozen Dinners?
I have a few but would like variety. Some things I've made in the past that have worked well are: lazagna, chili, stew, pizza & sheperd's pie.
