Four times a year I travel to my Mom's (95 yrs!) to fill her freezer with home-cooked meals. What mains or sides of yours freeze well?

The dishes that freeze well are usually the ones that have sauces to keep the food from getting dry.  I recommend any type of soups, stews, pot pies, or baked pastas.  Anything that you assemble, such as Chicken Pot Pie, is best frozen before baking.  Your Mom can defrost it overnight in the fridge and bake the pot pie before dinner.
