This morning in a matter of 2 hours I processed 20ish pounds of ground beef……I made
- 6 meals worth of meatballs
- 8 meals worth of cooked and seasoned ground beef (that will be turned into things like tacos, pizza rolls, casseroles, enchiladas, soups, etc)
- 16 hamburger patties
- 2 meat loaves
They are all in the freezer now, and those dinners are just about fully ready!
Why would I do this? Well, one of our grocery stores had lean ground beef on sale for $1.99 this weekend, so I bought 20ish pounds of it. Yes, I could have just portioned it out into one pound portions and frozen it that way, but for just a little more of a time investment I could have a BUNCH of meals mostly made. Which is why I took 2 hours to get them seasoned, cooked, portioned, packaged and into the freezer. And wow, in a 2 hour period of time I got 19 meals mostly made! How awesome is that???? If you could spend 2 hours and get 10-20 meals mostly prepped and into the freezer wouldn’t you? You CAN! You CAN do it!
