I do the exact same thing Andy. As a matter of fact, anytime I make something that can be frozen I double the recipe at the minimum. I then portion out meal size amounts and freeze and label using my Foodsaver. When I freeze stuff I freeze it flat. That way the meals can be easily stacked and organized and they also defrost quicker than if frozen as a block.Andy M. said:I make large batches of stuff and freeze meal-sized portions. Chili, several tomato sauces, a variety of soups, etc.

i've been wanting a foodsaver for awhile. are they a good item to have around, geebs? i like to cook a lot and put it in the freezer, but it gets freezer burnt sometimes.
also, can you make boil in bag/microwaveable meals? i'd like to make some microwave meals for my fiance to take home and to work.
