What are your favourite "don't cook before freezing" freezer meal recipes?

I'm expecting a (second) baby in 2 months. For our first baby, we stocked the freezer with tons of pre-cooked meals. By the end of the first 2 weeks, I was often resorting to take out or delivery, because I couldn't stand another hamburger dish or another reheated meal.
This time around, I'd like to have a good selection of frozen meals that have NOT been previously cooked. I honestly don't like reheated meals. I'd rather have things that are prepared raw and frozen, then cooked once before serving. (I don't mind having leftovers.)
I'm trying to avoid hamburger recipes, as I can think of a million of those on my own. I don't eat a ton of processed foods, so please go easy on the canned soups and sauces -- although I will accept some. (I will not eat stuff like processed cheese, though.) Our toddler has not yet been introduced to nuts and shellfish. Kid-friendly meals are a plus, but our little guy likes Thai, Mexican, Indian and other foods, since he's a Vancouver kid. Not all meals need have meat, although my husband would probably prefer that they did. Recipes for side dishes are also welcome. Any meal of day is fine -- breakfast, lunch, dinner. Healthier dishes preferred, but I'll only be so fussy once I'm sleep deprived.
So, what are your favourite "don't cook before freezing" freezer meals? Thanks!
