    Question Proper freezing techniques?

    I'm not sure I'm posing this in the right forum but I'm wondering about freezing tips.
    We are expecting our first baby in March and I'd like to stock up some frozen meals to get us through the first month or so. I was thinking about using some of the disposable baking pans from the dollar tree for the casseroles but I'm wondering how to do it? Do I need to use plastic wrap on the top to limit the amount of air in there or can I just use aluminum foil?
    I figured for the soups, stews, crock pot recipes I can just use freezer bags and push out as much of the air as possible, right?

    Thanks so much for any advise ladies!


    Oh, btw if it makes a difference the meal will be stored in a chest freezer.

    National Center for Home Food Preservation | How Do I? Freeze here is a really nice web site that will show you how to freeze, can, dehydrate...all types of food. good luck on the new baby.

    congrats on the baby!

    As for freezing, if you can get a Vacuum Sealer your foods will last a LOT longer, particularly in a chest freezer. Casseroles (the 9x9 pan size is great because it fits in a 1 gallon freezer bag), can be frozen and then baked without thawing.
    ~Enjoy!~
