Do you "cook once a week, eat everyday"? Share your tip!

I am half way through my maternity leave (We get 1 full year off in Canada). I am trying to envision how things would be after I return to work. I would like to have dinner and spend quality time with my son after I pick him up from daycare. Given that I would probably have only a couple hours every evening to do that, the plan is to cook once a week (or even two weeks) and freeze everything.

I am looking for any tips, advice, personal anecdote, anything that you would share. In terms of equipment, I have two fridges, a double oven, a crockpot, a dutch oven, a couple sets of pots and pans. The only item that I may get would be a Foodsaver. However, if I only plan to freeze the food for 2 weeks, is a Foodsaver really necessary? I have almost 6 months to try out all your tips and tricks so feel free to make any suggestion.

I am also seeking recipes to try out in the next 6 months. But I will post on the Home Cooking board for that.

Edited to insert link to my recipe-seeking post on the Home Cooking board:
