Works For Me Wednesday

This is something that HAS worked for me in the past and I'm starting to do again to make my life EASIER!

"Precooking your ground beef, chicken, etc..."

Did you buy ground beef in bulk?
Is meatloaf on the menu tonight?
Are you making some chicken breast or thighs and bought those in bulk?
Why not just double up?

Basically, if you are going to make meatloaf for dinner, why not make two instead of one and freeze the extra?

Bought a 3lb package of ground beef? Separate them into 1lb portions, fry them up and freeze them individually.

Cooking Chicken breast? Why not just go ahead and double up, slice the extra up and stick it in the freezer for a future meal?

TRUST ME, this makes life a whole lot easier! Especially if your in your 3rd trimester,LOL!
Seriously though, it's a budge saver too! Some nights we are just TOO TIRED to cook and it is so easy to say "let's grab a bite to eat" which isn't always the healthiest on our bodies or our wallets. It doesn't take that much longer to do and saves time and dishes later on.

Ground Beef already cooked from the freezer:
* Tacos
* Soups

Sliced up Chicken already cooked from the freezer:
* Casseroles
* Salads (great for summer)

Really, the options are endless and I LOVED taking cooked meat out of the freezer, microwaving it and making tacos with no skillets to wash and eating on paper plates for an easy night on me!

Don't stop there, these are just a couple ideas to get your creative juices flowing!
