I love soup. I eat it nearly every day. Good news too is that I like to make soup. It relaxes me. So, when I get a bumper crop of tomatoes, squash, corn or you name it vegetable, I'll make soup and freeze it in these pefect family sized containers. I like to have a variety available in the freezer. When I want a bowl, I'll pop the container in the microwave for a couple of minutes, to unfreeze it a little, then dump the rest of the contents in a sauce pan and let it simmer on the stove for a few minutes. As an added bonus, these containers don't melt in the dishwasher.
