Are there any good resources for freezable meals?

I've been searching for a good resource for meals that can be frozen and have come up empty-handed for the most part. I saw that Martha Stewart had a few recipes, but that's about it. I don't usually care for casseroles, so anything but that would be great! There's a class at the local culinary institute where you can make 12 freezable meals, but I just can't justify the $200.00 to take it just to get the recipes!!! Any suggestions?

    Just about everything I cook becomes a freezeable meal. I just package leftovers in individual serving containers and freeze. This allows me to prepare a normal sized recipe without having to eat the same thing for five days in a row.

      Try doing a google search on "once-a-month cooking". Here's one site I found to get you started:

        Friends of mine go to Dream Dinners and love it. Everything is prepared, you just go assemble meals from their list.

        The food I tried from there was good, so I went and did it last month. The quality of ingredients was high, and you can omit stuff you don't like. Each meal serves 4-6 people, so I broke it into 2 dishes because there are only 2 of us, and there was even enough for lunch the next day.

        The nutritional information for the dishes is available as well.

        Check the website to see if there is one in your area. My only complaint, not many vegetarian options, sometimes I just don't want meat.

          Hi there,
          I belong to a great group called Friendly Freezer. You can join through Yahoo Groups. It is a great list, very busy (you will get a lot of answers to your questions) and a very good source of inspiration.
