Containers for packaging freezer meals
There are lots
of options for you to use when you were doing freezer cooking.

while some are more economical in the immediate timeframe.
Ziploc bags are
probably the easiest to use when you're just getting started.
You can often get them on sale, and they can be used again
and again for vegetarian dishes.
You can also use
freezer containers. You can buy them from Tupperware (if you
plan on purchasing a lot, consider becoming a consultant for
the discount) or purchase them inexpensively at places such
as Wal-Mart or target. When purchasing freezer containers,
buying one of the large economy packs with a variety of sizes
and shapes is a good idea. That way you'll have a container
for just about everything.
Some people use
aluminum foil. Just be certain that you mark anything wrapped
in foil well. Writing with black felt on the foil itself is
not the best idea, writing on marking tape, then applying
the tape to the foil is best to make it easy to read.
The glass Pyrex
casseroles are great. You can shop around and find these inexpensively.
you'll probably find the most versatile size is the traditional
9 x 11. Be sure at the when you select comes the lead to make
it easy for storing in the freezer as well as labeling. Do
keep in mind that he cannot take it from the freezer to the
oven, you will need to defrost first.
