Last night I made soup… a good amount of soup.
I typically make a lot of soup, and then flat freeze it in ziplock bags in the freezer, so that when I want soup, I grab a bag – I have a serving size, and voila. Soup.
So last night I made butternut squash soup – recipe below. It was really really good, but when I went to freeze it – I realized that I had 1 freezer bag in quart size, and 1 freezer bag in gallon size, which doesnt work. I need several quart size bags to freeze in serving sizes.
AND THEN IT CAME TO ME… and I ended up with this:
I had disposable cupcake tins – 2 packages, so 6 tins – so I figured – hmmmm why not give it a try. I filled up each well with soup, covered it with foil, and froze it! AND THEN – this morning I popped them out, and stuck them in my gallon size bag, and – LOOK – 1/2 cup chunks of soup. Taaa Dah!! I ended up filling completely up 2 tins, so 12 1/2 cup blocks of soup – which is very exciting. This is a small recipe for me – I usually end up with twice this much soup, so this was good to practice with.
And it’s tasty!! – Recipe Below.
