What Are Some Lunches That Freeze Well?

Recipe Questions

Q: Any suggestions for DIY frozen lunches? Our New Year's resolution is to save more money by bringing our lunch to work four days a week. I'm looking for one-dish meals that freeze well and can be defrosted in the microwave.We do eat chicken, but I'd prefer recipes that are vegetarian. Thanks for your help!
