Most chilis, soups, and stews freeze really well. We freeze vegetarian chili, stews with lentils or beans, different vegetable soups. The only things I don’t freeze are things with dairy – it tends to go a bit odd in the freezer. I also don’t freeze potatoes for the same reason.

You can also freeze casseroles pretty easily, or enchiladas(but I’d freeze without the sauce or cheese).

Oh, make sure you only put your things in the freezer after they’ve cooled – if you put them in hot, it can make a lot of ice in the container and can mess up the texture/taste.

It also need not take more than 30 minutes to get dinner on the plate after work.

If you use a steamer you can have fish or chicken and a vegetable ready in no time. Add a salad and dinner is good togo.

I make a big crockpot of chili or stew every couple weeks and freeze portions in glass tupperware.  Super easy, healthy, and cheap.  Then just steam some broccoli or something and you’re good to go for a quick dinner.

@DuckEBee:  In the meantime, you can get a bamboo steamer or a folding metal steamer for next to nothing.
