Tips on cooking for for several days

Does anyone have tips on cooking food in advance for several days?

I'm cutting back on what I eat and want to cook the meals twice a week, portion them out, and then store.

What is the best way to store the food in this situation? Plastic wrap? Freeze some of it?

Since there is only hubby, doggie and me, I cook a whole heap of winter soup and stop short of putting all the vegetables in. What I do after cooking the soup/meat base, I just get some containers and portioned them for 3 each container. Then the last base in the pot is the one where I put the vegetables in for dinner (one-pot meals). The rest of the meat base portion do not have the vegetables in them that will go soggy when defrosted. I just get one portion and use that to do anything that I want to for next cooking/heating then add the vegetables.

I bake bread every other day so that completes the meals. I also portioned out the bread dough, cook them halfway through and freeze them and only put out what I will be needing for dinner to finish baking.

.I hope this helps a little bit...:chef:
