How would you freeze them though? 2 Cups at a time? In a ziplock or something else?

I freeze them all sorts of ways, in freezer containers, in ziplock bags. I freeze small amounts and big amounts. I always make extra and stick them in the freezer for a quick meal.

I love the freezer idea... Thanks mama

I usually end up hydrating too much and they go bad REAL quick in the fridge... yuck
