Dee Posted June 11, 2022 Share Posted June 11, 2022 How many of you cook ahead and put it in the freezer? Either leftovers or plan ahead foods? Yesterday and today boneless pork ribs were $1.48 lb. Limit 10 lbs. I bought the full amount with the idea of cooking meat for the freezer. They look so good I'd go back today and get another 10 lbs. but with the price of gas and the store being 20 miles away I decided against it. That's one bad thing about living in the country. Anyway, below is the whole 10 lbs. ready to go. Half the meat has been put in the crockpot with seasonings and onion soup mix. The other 1/2 is seasoned and being boiled. When cooked I'll put a bar-b-que sauce on them and in the oven at 250 for 1/2 hour-an hour. They are so tender and good! I'll cool them and then wrap individually in plastic wrap, freeze and then put them all in a big Baggie and into the freezer. I also bought 5 lbs. of Italian sausage and 5 dozen eggs. I'll brown the sausage and add the eggs to scramble the whole mix. Pack flat, in individual servings, in sandwich bags and freeze. It saves so much time later when I'm not in the mood to cook AND, it makes DH a happy man to have food to cook when I'm not around for a meal. I'd love some ideas on what you do to plan and freeze ahead. P.S. I just took the boiled, bar-b-que sauce ribs from the oven. I'll give DH one as his meat for lunch and look at all that will go in the freezer. 5 Quote Link to comment
