Just looking some tips/ideas of meals I can prep and freeze, maybe batch cook.
I usually do things like;

Chilli con carne
Sausage casserole

As I can make a big pot and portion it out into cartons and freeze it, I don't mind making the rice/pasta/potatoes on the day but looking ideas for busy evenings

Off the top of my head...
Bolognaise style pasta sauces
Mashed potato
Shepherds pie
I’m veggie so mine are all made with lentils/veg rather than meat.

Forgot, tagines are particularly good because cous cous is so easy to make fresh.

Chicken Supreme when defrosted could be served with rice or pasta or made into a pie with pastry or topped with sliced potatoes and baked.

Left over from a joint, sliced roast meat such as pork, frozen in gravy.

I like cous cous but rarely have it so that would be a nice change and my DH makes a good tagine

Great idea with the chicken supreme too, means I've got a bit more choice re pie/mash/rice

Fish pie? You could make a few single portion ones, if you have fish refusers in your house.

Fishcakes and hand-pies/pasties are good as they only require steamed veg or salad to go with them.

Any casserole freezes well
Pork tenderloin with shallots, apples and mushrooms, cooked in cider
Coq au vin
Beef bourguinon

Plain old soup? Freeze part-baked baguettes ti have alongside. If you add beans/lentils it's a complete meal....
