Moneysavingmom.com's freezer cooking challenge came at the perfect time for me! There are 27 days left until my due date and lots of meals that need prepared for those sleep-deprived days to follow. Since ground beef is on sale at Martin's this week ($1.99/lb), I bought around 20 lbs of it. Now, I need to turn that into something quick and easy for hubby to thaw and eat.
First up: Tacos!!
I decided to start easy and work my way up. I took 3 lbs of ground beef and browned it. I combined that with two taco seasoning packets and two cans of dark red kidney beans. Then, I split that between four bowls and flash-froze them. When they were completely frozen later that night, I popped them out of the bowls and put two servings each in freezer bags. Four easy-peasy taco dinners ready to go.
Now, I need ideas for the other 17 lbs of ground beef!!
Next up: Brown Bag Burritos
