Freezer Stock Up This Week

Freezer stock up has begun. Today I browned two packages of sausage links. I wrap them in waxed paper sheets in pairs, then put them in a gallon sized ziploc bag in the freezer. This makes them easy to warm up-you just grab a packet, microwave it for about 30 seconds, and the boys have sausage with breakfast.

Tonight after baking a turkey breast that we will use for lunch meat this week (see how we make our own lunch meat here), I made a big batch of stock, part of which I will use tomorrow in corn chowder, the rest of which I will freeze in ice cube trays. LOVE having stock like this in the freezer...You can just grab a couple of cubes and use what you need.

This week when the sale ads come out I will be putting my eye toward some make-ahead meals for the freezer. Check back for tips and recipes on how you can make multiple meals for future use cheaply and easily!

You are so organized! I just have not been able to meal plan. If I am lucky I can plan for a few days. I am trying to learn from you. I enjoy your blog!

You are very organized. I like the idea with the sausage so you can have it ready quick and easy.

hehehe both of you are so sweet! I'm sure hubby would debate you on the "I am organized" part, but I'm certainly "TRYING" to be organized. It helps life a LOT, but it's a constant thing...that 21 days to a habit doesn't necessarily apply here. It's like diet vs. lifestyle.

Cheapbychoice...if you ever have any questions or need ideas, just holler! :)
