Meal Portions:Stocking That Freezer

After I do a cooking session, I serve my family what I’ve cooked. The leftovers get divided into meal sizes and frozen. An ideal meal size for a single portion: fill one dinner plate  as you normally would for one person. Place that single portion in a freezable container or zip-loc bag and freeze. If there are five or six of you in the family, place all portions in the same container or zip-loc bag. When re-heating the meal, you can separate the portions when you re-heat. when freezing soups, I simply count how many ladelfuls it takes to fill one bowl then count as I am filling the soup container. After doing this for a while, you will be able to tell automatically how many ladelfuls you’ll need without counting.

How many meals will you freeze this week?
