Last weekend my kids were in Sarasota for a few days with my parents and I decided to make some meals for my freezer. Everybody has their own way of doing this, I thought I would share what I did this time. I went to the grocery store to buy my meat and chicken and I found ground beef for $.91 a pound so I bought all they had. Here is the list of what I ended up making that day:
Italian Meat – Ground beef with onions and garlic
BBQ Beef – Ground Beef mixed with BBQ sauce for BBQ Hamburger Pies
Shredded Chicken – for tacos, BBQ chicken sandwiches, and buffalo chicken sandwiches
Oh yeah, here is my kitchen when I started:
The first thing I did after I washed some dishes was put 5 lbs of chicken between two crock pots and added chicken broth and Taco Seasoning to one of them and set them on low. Then I went ahead and put the rest of the chicken in the oven to bake, then cube. I use cooked chicken for chicken pot pie, poppy seed chicken, or on pizza. I didn’t have the time or energy to fully put those meals together, but having the chicken cooked and chopped makes dinner that night so much easier. For the rest of the afternoon I browned the ground beef for different recipes and chopped my onions. The refried beans are super easy to make and freeze very well.
