Around here we rarely have much food left over after meals. I purposely cook large enough portions for dinner to enjoy for lunch the next day. Only occasionally we will have a serving or two left after that. Since it takes so many "single servings" to make up another meal, I've gotten into the habit of freezing them for my mom to take home with her after her visits. It saves her time and effort, and helps me to keep from wasting food.
As I was packaging up some of our chicken soup for Mom, I got to thinking that this could become a ministry for others. Perhaps you know of an elderly person or couple, college student, or struggling single that would be blessed by some of your good home-cookin'?
Those 1 or 2 cup disposable Ziploc containers work great. So would a freezer bag in some instances. Just remember to label the contents and allow for the frozen food to expand (visualize tomato soup running out into the freezer and then freezing into red concrete!).
Our family's website, PeacefulHome.net, is in the process of changing hosting companies and is currently inactive. Our plan is to move this blog over once construction is complete. Please stay tuned for updates!
