Vacuum Seal Food Storage Ideas

jpc8015 | Feb 1, 201011:53 PM     38

A couple of years back my wife bought me one of those vacuum seal food storage contraptions. I got a lot of use out of it. We would buy the large packages of meat and seal up two thirds of it and stick it in the freezer for later use.

Now I would like to use it to store ready to eat meals and I need some Chowhound help. My wife is pregnant and I work out of town for weeks at a time. I would like to be able to do some serious bulk cooking so that lovely wife only has a minimal amount of work to do when she needs something healthy and nutritious to eat.

Does anybody have one of these machines? More importantly, does anyone know of certain types of food that do well for this sort of application?
