Working out the home now...need new meal ideas

My SO is home and has to make dinner Mon-Fri. He doesn't cook unless it is hot dogs or hamburger helper or something frozen. Quick, easy things but not healthy. I really need some ideas for things I can make and throw in the freezer and he can just throw in the oven to heat up. Or something quick I can throw together in the morning before I go to work and he can heat it up. I am going shopping over the weekend so I would love to get some things for next week.

Re: Working out the home now...need new meal ideas

Here are a few of my favorite meals to make when I was working out of the home:

Sliced chicken, beef or pork (would usually buy the pre-sliced stuff when it was on sale.
Night before I would slice up:
Bowl 1- fresh muchrooms (cook these with the meat)
Bowl 2- Carrots, broccoli, cauliflower, celery, whatever else sounded good at the time

I would fry up the meat and mushrooms until brown on the outside then add in the rest of the vegetables I will usually add a bit of terrikyi sauce. Serve with rice or pasta.

Chicken pasta
Diced up chicken (boneless breasts or thighs)
pasta (I like bowties for this)
frozen peas
frozen corn
mushroom soup

Cook pasta.
Brown chicken, add in mushroom soup, carrots and any other raw vegetables, cook until vegies are soft, add in frozen vegetable. Sometime I'll add in diced tomatoes at the end.

I also like to have containers of frozen homemade soup, lasagna and chilli in the freezer. Its easy to pull out and cook. Also, learning to use the slowcooker for roasts can be a great way to serve a yummy meal right when you get home.
