give me your top 3 make ahead meals

I need make ahead meals. I work, have two small kids and would love to eat something different every day for a year. However, I end up making some things over and over because they are easy to prepare. I do turkey breasts, pork ribs, corned beef, whole chickens, beef ribs; all in the slow cooker. It is just simple to get it ready in the morning and eat when we get home. From stuff I have in the pantry, I willl do salmon croquettes, linguini with clam sauce, doctored up spaghetti, ramen, mac and cheese. I can do a quick baked/broiled fish with roasted veggies.

But, what I am looking for is your top 3 make ahead meals. I want something that will be ready when I get home or perhaps, just assembled ahead of time so that when I do get home, it doesn't take much effort, ie throw in the oven, quickly saute, or just plate and eat! My husband doesn't really like casseroles, so those are out.
