Here's my freshly stocked freezer for the rest of February and all of March. I stretched out the work over several days. 2-3 hours of work for 3 days and now I'm free every night to spend time with my kids and husband instead of standing over a hot stove.

The list of dinners is as follows:

Orange Chicken (1)
BBQ Chicken (2)
Pot Roast (2)
Italian Tenders (1)
BBQ Pulled Pork (1)
Plain Pork Tenderloins (2)
French Dip (1)
Turkey Burgers (1)
Stuffed Bell Peppers (2)
I also blanch fresh vegetables and freeze them. I have bags of broccoli, carrots, asparagus, and green beans. Then I can take as little as a handful for the kids lunches or an entire bag for dinner, and microwave them in a covered dish. I also freeze homemade chicken stock in muffin tins for throwing into recipes. I freeze fruits too for snacks. Sliced grapes and strawberries are my kids favorite to munch on.
