Menu Plan for the Week (belated)

So remember when I mentioned I travel to San Francisco regularly for work? Well, guess where I am this week. :-)

But I still have a menu plan -- in order to cut costs while I'm gone, I always cook up a storm of food to leave in the fridge for hubby. The trick with these menu plans is coming up with meals that make a big batch and that last for a few days in the fridge. In fact, ideally, they get better with a little age! I look for the recipes that are even better the next day after the flavors have melded a bit.

So this week, hubby's eating the following while I'm gone:

What are your favorite make-ahead recipes that make great leftovers and last for a while? I'm particularly interested in any casserole recipes you might know of....
