I don't like to cook everyday, I like cooking things like chili, roast, mac and cheese from scratch, ect but I don't always win this one hubby just now started to eat leftovers and I'd like to get rid of the processed foods. 

What are some great foods I can spend one day cooking and have breakfast, lunches, and dinners made plus snacks for the week. Things I can freeze or not freeze that are easy to reheat without all the yucky things in it. :) I appreciate in advanced.

well you already said chili which gets better after a couple of days, stew, stoup (chunky soup), shepherds pie, various casseroles and pastas can freeze.  I like to take multiple boneless and skinless chicken breasts and cook them in bulk and then I can add them to a salad, make chicken salad for lunch and can add it into pastas such as chicken Florentine, make a chicken chili, add onto nachos or enchiladas or quesadillas.

For breakfast you can make pancakes and waffles (from scratch) and freeze them. Big batches.

Chicken Enchiladas. I use homemade enchilada sauce, not the canned stuff. They last a few days and tend to be crowd pleasers.

I get a whole fryer chicken and either roast it or cook it in the crockpot. Then I have shredded chicken that I can do whatever I want with for the whole week.
