I am thinking of making soups for gift giving this Christmas. I figure I can make a pot of soup pretty quickly and separate it all out in containers for gift giving that can be easily frozen by the recipient in case they want to eat it later. I make some very good soups. In fact, people have offered to buy them from me :) so I know I can do it. I don't really want to a. buy into consumerist ideology b. promote an unhealthy lifestyle (I can make soups low-salt, low-fat and full of vegies) c. spend $$$ that I don't have BUT I really do want to thank some wonderful people at the holidays.
I will probably package them in the new bpa free containers from glad or some company. It won't be very pretty, though... But mason jars wouldn't freeze so well and I figure everyone would like a homemade soup in the freezer for one busy day or a day that didn't feel well.
Is this a weird idea??
