Make ahead dinners to freeze

Well it's getting close to that time of year where we leave for the island. Since the first week anyway is generaly nutts(well the first two months are). I decided to make a few dinners ahead so we don't have to think about what to do for dinner.

So far I've got lasagna, sauce is made and in the freezer so we just need to make the noodles and through it all together. I thought unthawing the sauce just to freeze it again might be a bad thing?

Chili will be another but I need a third meal idea. I don't want another beef dish and hubby is super picky and allergic to mushrooms. Also the bosses are on a low carb diet, so if possilbe something that doesn't have a lot of carbs.

I thought about soup but hubby's not a homemade soup fan and most have rice or pasta in them. Other than veggie soups but that would be a third tomato dish. I know the bosses don't care, just the fact we don't have to think about dinner for at least the first three days is good enough.

I have looked at several recipe sites but just can't decide so I thought if any of you had an idea or recipe it might make my decision easier. Not that I am looking for an easy out but I am just not very creative when it comes to cooking, I can cook as long as I have something to follow.
