The Great Freezer Fill Up!

I got a GREAT deal on ground beef at Albertson's last week. It was on sale $1.58 per lb and then I had a 50 cents off coupon making it $1.38 per lb! Cheap! I bought 20 lbs and got to work.
Browned the meat with a bit of salt....
Drained the fat...
Put 2 cups each in freezer bags for future meals. I made a few batches of taco seasoned meat and a batch of sloppy joe seasoned meat.
MMM!! I love having things like this ready to go for dinner on busy nights!

I also scored 4 blocks of 2 lb Tillamook Cheese for $2.99 each on sale WITH a coupon. I grated all of that and bagged it the same way.


  1. Holy Moly you have been busy girl! Such ambition.

  2. I love hearing about ideas like this. Where do you put it all? Do you have an extra freezer?

  3. @Kerstin - I do! We bought it on sale two years ago from Lowe's for about $400. It's a large upright freezer in our garage and now that I have it I don't think I could live without it!

  4. What a great idea to get a head start on the week. Great time saver!
