Freezer meals that can be reheated/cooked in a microwave/(convection) oven?

We're tearing out our kitchen's linoleum and replacing it with tile in a few weeks. The dishwasher and stove will be out of the kitchen for about 2 weeks and my only access to direct heat/a burner will be my grill. And it's spring in the Seattle area, which means I can expect torrential downpours, hail, and windstorms to be the norm for the next few months, so I'd REALLY rather not rely on that.

I plan to make a bunch of REAL food and freeze it so we can reheat as necessary. I painted our cabinets a few weeks ago and lived off of storebought frozen dinners and haven't felt worse in my whole life. The only restrictions that I have are that soups/stews are not appreciated by hubby, but I'm already planning to make a few quarts of tortilla soup. He also doesn't like pasta (!!!) though I already have a couple of pans of ricotta and spinach and herb stuffed shells tucked away in the freezer that I'm planning to bake off in the convection cycle of the oven.

What would YOU make? We are willing to try lots of things, but DH hates pasta and soups/stews. Which of course limits things.
