What sauces, pastes, relishes or other partial meals can I prepare in batches and freeze?

I've been busy of late and haven't always had as much time to cook as I'd like, and batches of green curry paste that I've made and frozen have come in really handy. I'd like to spend some time next weekend stocking up on things that might come in similarly useful: do you have any ideas or recipes?
I'd rather not freeze whole servings of food because my freezer is really small and we never seem to eat whole portions stored away for later, they just add to the clutter. It might help to know that I don't have a microwave for defrosting.
Other examples of the sort of thing I mean are that I've made some amazing harissa, and some disappointing paste for Singapore fried noodles. I know I can buy very good examples of these, but I'm looking for both an excuse for kitchen pottering, and the virtuous feeling that comes from having prepared something ahead.
