    Hi well done for being so organised!!!
    If you do bolognaise type mince then you can split it and when you defrost have pasta with it or jacket potato or turn it into a lasagne, I've added kidney beans and chilli powder after defrost to make chilli for jacket spuds. make sure you have lots of garlic bread in that helps bulk out these.
    If you do mince and onions and split it after defrost you can make a pastry top, or a mash top and frozen veg for shepherds pie.
    Stews are great too cos you can make a massive one on the stove and split it into two or three meals if theres not much in one portion then put extra veg or mash when dishing up.
    I got some bags of frozen fish on offer and made fish pie a few of them may help.
    But I never have enough glass/china dishes to freeze thats why I do the mince and stew options most so I can use plastic tubs.
    Hope they help give you a few ideas xxx

    Glad I could help x
    i find marg tubs are good and ice cream tubs but am never sure if I should microwave some of them but if i'm not sure i just pop it under the hot tap to get the lump out solid. If you can find really thick freezer bags they are good. I try to get the stuff out night before but i never manage to think that far ahead... certainly not at the mo :dohh: pregnant brain
