I use ice cube trays too, and it is a hassle getting the cubes out - but the portions come out sized just right for a meal. I can store a whole tray's worth in one medium sized Tupperware container.
I just started using silicone ice cube trays from Bed Bath and Beyond. I don't care for the trays much, they are sort of wierd and floppy (I can't imagine trying to make ice in them, they'd spill everywhere). The squares are a little smaller than the old-fashioned plastic trays, but the frozen cubes are much much easier to pop out.
