Do you make meals ahead of time and freeze them for later?

Absolutely! I started a freezer meal swap with 4 other girls that live near me. We swap approximately once every 5-6 weeks. Plus, I make myself an extra to have on hand for later. Its soooo much easier making 5 or 6 of the same thing and freezing than just making one.

And its more cost efficient as well.

 I do a lot of double batch cooking, eat one and freeze one for later.

No. Don't like the taste of leftovers.

I have always wanted to try this. Once you freeze them do u put them directly into the oven? What is the best easy recipe you enjoy?

Once frozen, I take them out of the freezer the night before I want to eat it and fridge thaw it.

I make a lot of casseroles (pasta dishes freeze soooo well as do rice dishes). My last swap I did meatloaf and mashed potatoes. I freeze meatloaf raw with the topping sauce in a baggie on the side and mashed potatoes cooked and put into a ziplock baggie. That meal was REALLY good frozen.
