I did omit several ingredients that I didn't feel necessary to add beforehand. For example, the Chicken Fajita Soup takes 4 cups of half & half, which I will add when I cook it. My Chili Verde takes 3 cans of salsa verde which is non-perishable and always in my pantry, so I opted to not add until the actual cooking. Not to mention, gallon Ziplocs can only hold so much!
My freezer space is limited, so I had to make sure we had adequate room. By using Ziploc and then freezing flat, I was able to use minimal space. Also, using 3 bags eased my mind about leaking!
