I need dairy-free freezable meals for post partum... HELP!

I have a dairy allergy and while I have had no problem cooking for myself over the years, I find myself stumped when it comes to planning freezer foods for post partum. Stir fries don't exactly freeze well!

Please suggest some dairy-free or dairy-optional (as in sprinkle cheese on top or has an easy to sub dairy product in it) meals for me?

Thanks in advance!

I don't eat much dairy either (my allergy won't kill me but it's a true allergy according to the doc).

There are only two of us (right now!) so we make big batches of chili, spaghetti sauce, or lentils with ground beef and freeze half. Or we use part of a package of chicken breakfast sausage or beef bratwurst and freeze the rest in two-serving portions in vacuum-sealed bags. Pancakes are quick and the breakfast sausage is already cooked so can be reheated from frozen; once the bratwurst is thawed, it reheats in about 10 minutes and can be served in a hot dog bun or with mashed potatoes (obv. the potatoes take longer).
