(calzones)

you can use leftover pancake mix as a topping for onion rings and deep fry them then freeze

(tuna pinwheels)

Hope that helps, you could also make cinnamon flops and freeze for snacks/bfast:

CINNAMON FLOP
1 c. sugar
2 c. flour
2 tsp. baking powder
1 Tbsp. butter, melted
1 c. milk
brown sugar
cinnamon
butter

Sift sugar, flour, and baking powder together. Add melted butter and milk; stir until well blended. Divide mixture between 2 well-oiled 9" pie or cake pans. Sprinkle dough with desired amounts of brown sugar and cinnamon and add pats of butter.
Bake at 350 for 30 minutes

As for frozen meals, you could def. do what you said The perfect trays for toddlers would be to save the gerber lil entrees trays.

IDEAS: homemade mac n cheese with corn and a small brownie.
meatloaf, mashed potatoes, green beans
if you have leftover mashed pot. from dinner, dont toss them~use them in your microwave dinners, same with leftover veggies.
you could buy a cheap bag of frozen raviolis w/sauce and put that in a tray with breadsticks or garlic toast.
