fast dinners

Are you like me and sometimes find yourself trying to think up a dinner at 4:30 pm? Well, this is a great way to save a little time and money: When you go to the store, buy the bulk sized meat in the great big packages. (If you shop at a  Costco type store, well-there you go!) Anyway, freeze the meat and when you're ready to cook it, cook the whole package at once. Then divide up the cooked meat and put in good ziploc freezer bags, portioning the amount you usually use for your family. Put a date on it and stick it in the freezer. Now when you need a quick meal, you can just add the sauce and spices, or whatever to your already-cooked meat. Works great for chicken and ground beef. And this way your husband can handle it when you leave him to cook dinner! :)
