Ideas for a bulk cook freezer day

#1
I always do either red or green and am having a 'freezer' cooking day. (ie I have nothing to do so am going to spend the day cooking food to freeze). I have plenty of Chinese takeaway containers that need to be filled.

I'm getting bored of my usual curry/chilli/ bolignaise so please help with some tasty easy freeze ideas.

Thank you :)

I have a stroganoff and a mousakka recipe, but you would have to check the syn values etc as they are from the orignal recipe cook book from a couple of year ago so the values may have changes x
