To add to the above - I always cook meatloaf, slice it, & freeze the individual slices well-wrapped in plastic wrap & then placed in a freezer Ziplock bag. What's nice about this is that you can take out just as many slices as you need - enough for a dinner, or just one for a nice meatloaf sandwich. I thaw & reheat them in the microwave & they're good to go.

And of course, as others have advised, chilis, non-cream-based soups, stews, baked pasta dishes, etc., all freeze & thaw great!!

We regularly cook for a relative who cannot get around very well.

The above selections are great.

We usually include some baked ziti and chicken cacciatore.

The chicken is a big hit and is very healthy since we make it with a lot of sweet peppers, including red peppers.

Usually spend about two days cooking and fill a couple of freezers.

Lasts them for months.
