I love this idea for freezing leftover soup in muffin pans.
Since we home school, we are most often at home for lunch, and soup works great for lunches.

Just pop them out when they are frozen and put in a freezer bag,
then microwave for a quick meal.

Muffin and cupcake pans are awesome for organization as well.

I started using silicone muffin pans because my old metal pans were hard to clean and I wouldn’t get them dry enough, and they would rust. Now I’ve learned to put my pans back in the still warm oven after I wash them, so they get nice and dry and don’t rust.  The silicone bakeware requires special care with handling because it’s floppy and can get punctured, so here is a link for some information that is helpful in taking care of it.
