What are your favorite freezer friendly recipes?

I am quite busy with work and university and I wonder if any of you have some good ideas for recipes were you can cook a big batch and then freeze it in "dinner sizes"?

Thanks!

Do you freeze in solid plastic containers or in plastic bags?

Freezable/microwavable plastic containers are best.  I get the ones from Gladware when my supermarket has them on sale 2 for $5.  I like the ones that are wide & shallow because the food heats quicker--don't get the deep ones they market specifically for soup, as you'll be heating, stirring, & reheating a lot. 

Plastic bags are nifty for salads as long as you use a plastic fork.

sometimes i bag it, sometimes container it
ususally containers for me though because they're easier to clean and re-use
IKEA sell freezable microwavable containers for a very good price
