I had about 30 meals frozen last time and it was great. We bought a chest freezer mainly for this purpose. I try to keep a good stock of freezer meals all the time for DH to take to work and for J and I to eat when he does an evening shift or just for days when we feel like a hot lunch or don't want to cool dinner from scratch.
Last time I started about two months before J was due. I did a variety of complete meals, main components which just needed pasta/rice/salad made fresh and some baked treats. I don't like the texture of thawed rice but I've found pasta freezes well, especially if you slightly undercook it.
I have successfully frozen
- Tuna and veggie mornay
- spaghetti bolegnase
- lamb stew and veggies
- chicken/chick pea tomato stew
- lasagne ( veggie and beef)
- chilli con carne
- zucchini slice
- roast lamb, veggies and gravy
- spinach and ricotta canelonni
- tomato/veggie pasta sauce
- pumpkin soup
- risotto ( if you don't mind the frozen rice which DH doesn't)
- pizza dough
- banana bread/cake
- date loaf
- jam slice
