Welcome to our Week of Freezing! Maybe it’s the fact that the temperature here hasn’t gone above freezing in well, a long stinking time that’s got me thinking about freezing but for those of you in Florida (catch my jealousy as I type?!) you can still join in!!
Mama B (my mother in law) has always had a deep freeze into which she’s thrown cheap meats and other things on sale. A few years ago I stopped laughing at her Y2K stockpile and started realizing that maybe she had something smart going on here! Then we bought the house we’re in and it came complete with a standing freezer! – now I’m a Class A Freez-aholic!
For me, freezing is great when there’s only 2 of you to cook for. I love fresh, healthy meals but let’s face it, how many of you buy produce only to find it spoil before you get to eat it? That was the situation we were in and I decided to take action. Now I wrap up lots of things that I buy in bulk when they’re on sale and then pop some of them in the freezer for later use.
My favourite things to freeze are meat and produce. A few weeks ago I bought pork butt roast at $.98/LB. I got it home and hubby and I cut it up and froze it for later use. We cut it into pork chops, roasts and also small pieces for Garlic Pork. Then we threw it in the freezer.
I love freezing fruits and veg too. I just bought some onions at ALDI. I got 3LBs for $.79. There’s no way we can eat those before they spoil so I cut them up and froze them.
How about you? Is this a new concept? What do you freeze? Tomorrow we’ll be looking at How To Freeze and of course check back for tomorrow’s great giveaway!
