Freezing For Later

Another semester at the University of Wyoming begins today. As soon as classes begin free time becomes a rare commodity. This year I decided to finally “grow up” and get an apartment. I no longer have a veritable smorgasbord of food hot and ready to eat at the cafeteria. I enjoy cooking, however during the week I might not have much time to prepare delicious and nutritious meals. Preparing in advance helps with time management.

zucchiniIt saves money to buy beef in bulk and freeze it for later. I like to have large packages of ground beef and cook it before I freeze it.

Ground beef

Last night, I cooked a 2 pound package of ground beef so I have recipe ready ground beef in the freezer whenever I need it.IMG_9097I like to use plastic containers to freeze my beef in. Although you can use freezer bags as well. It is important to label the dates on the containers. Cooked beef can stay in a freezer for up to 3 or 4 months.
