Great Tips!

Why didn't I think of this:
I just read THIS post on Shopping with Cents and loved the tips she gave. My favorite tip was; when you buy your ground beef in BULK or in large family packs, get a head start and instead of doing what I ALWAYS do (separate the uncooked beef into another freezer bag) cook the meat and then place it on a cookie sheet and freeze it!!! Then place it in freezer bags! What a great IDEA!!! I love it. To read her FULL post click HERE.

Thanks Shopping with Cents!!

I've tried this, but didn't like the taste after it had thawed. My husband & I both have thing with meat tasting funny as leftovers.

i dont even freeze it on a cookie sheet--just straight into zipper bags (after its cooled a bit).

I tried something similar with chicken this week. I bought the boneless skinless chicken breasts on sale at Albies (15 pounds of them!) and instead of putting them in bags and freezing them into one massive lump, I froze them spread out on cookie sheets, then piled them into big Ziplocs. Makes them convenient like the individually frozen meat, but better quality. Plus, I don't have to guess at what size package I'll need for meals.

I put chicken in the crockpot all day. Then I shred/cut it for my casseroles. Put it in a freezer bag and freeze. It's ready to thaw/defrost for my casseroles, soups, chicken salad, etc. and saves a lot of time!
