I love your subject--freezing loved ones! I know that's not how you meant it, but I got a giggle out of it anyway!

The gladware should work fine. Just make sure to leave a good inch empty at the top of the container to account for expansion when frozen. I usually store my frozen soups in a heavy duty freezer bag with a write-on label. You can freeze them flat (just make sure to buy good quality bags), they don't pick up freezer smells as easy as containers with lids, and you can record the contents and date made. What about a chili for the third dish? Bryanna Clark Grogan has a great one--Chili Sin Carne. It's in her Almost No-Fat Cookbook, or you can go over to her board and ask for chili recipes. I think it's one she regularly gives out. A "beef" stew would be good as well, especially during winter. Again, Bryanna has a great recipe and so does Joanne Stepaniak in her Vegan Vittles cookbook. We just had it for dinner last night and it was sooooo good! One other idea is a Three Sisters stew--it has corn, beans and squash in it. There are lots of recipes for variations on the net.
