Saturday we took a short road trip to Sam’s to stock the freezer and pantry. This wasn’t my usual trip that would include prepping and cooking meals for the freezer. This was a get us through the next month of Summer lunches, and picnic dinners at the soccer fields. Essentially, there was a bunch of snacks, necessities, and meat.
I like buying ground beef, and boneless skinless chicken breast in bulk. For our family, they are very versatile and quick fixes. During this trip, I bought about 5 pounds of ground beef.
While the guys were unloading the car of all of their snacks, I began browning the hamburger. Once browned, drained, and cooled, I packaged in quart bags for the freezer. Now I have pre-browned ground beef ready for spaghetti, tacos, casseroles… How do you use ground beef?
While the ground beef was browning, I cleaned and individually packaged the chicken breast. Having chicken individually packaged makes it convenient to pull out 1, 2, or more, depending on what I’m cooking.I also picked up a large roast, probably enough for 5-6 meals. Divided it in half and put in the freezer for a meal soon. Everyone was excited when they found out I had snuck a roast in the buggy. This will be a requested meal on our menu soon.
I’ll soon be sharing how I use my pre-browned ground beef, and chicken breasts.
