Dee Posted November 3, 2022 Share Posted November 3, 2022 let's start cooking ahead for quick meals to have from the freezer. (Gardening is done up here anyway.} The price of food is going up and up and up. Eating out has become so expensive and for us it's at least a 20-mile drive, one way. So, I'm a bargain shopper and cook ahead kind of gal. Our local grocery store had Italian sausage, normally $3.99 lb. on sale for $2.50 lb. this week. I bought 5 lbs. wish I'd thought ahead enough to buy 10 but, oh well. Anyway, DH loves Italian sausage for breakfast. Since he sleeps late in the mornings, he fixes his own breakfast. I don't mind cooking things for the freezer, I just don't fix his breakfast in the morning when I've been up for hours. So, the 5 lbs. of sausage made 23 patties. Most meat patties I cook ahead I wrap each piece individually in plastic wrap. DH doesn't know the difference, so I just put his on a cookie sheet in the freezer and throw the whole kit and Kaboodle into a bag once frozen. He's happy, I'm happy and the price was great! The 2 packages under the rack of sausage are tuna casserole. We ate it a couple of times and are tired of it for now. Into the freezer it went to be made into 2 more quick meals later. Love these quick meals. What do you do? I would love some new ideas. meals. 5 Quote Link to comment
