Packaging Quick Meals

I save the black microwave containers that frozen packaged food comes in. When I am making casseroles, chili, etc., I fill them. I use Glad Press and Seal and make my own instant food for my teenage son.

They are also handy to send home cooked meals back to college. It's cheaper and it's good for them.

I must be behind the times. What is Glad Press?: I live alone and like to freeze meals for another day.

Editor's Note: It's a kind of wrap, like saran wrap only it sticks to the container, press and seal.

not to be a kill-joy, but the packages say not to remicrowave in those containers.

The Guest Post is right. If you read the box, almost all (if not all) of them say not to re-microwave the plastic dish that the food comes in. The idea is great though, and there are dishes that you can buy that can be re-used over and over.

As for portion control, I go buy what the box says. If you read the nutrition label, it says how much is one serving.

I always wondered why you can't re-microwave those containers. Does anyone know?
