I buy meats on sale in bulk , precook and freeze individual packages for quick evening meals after a long day at work. For example : Hamburger can be browned plain or with a mixture of onions or peppers to use in soups, pasta or sandwiches. This saves money and time. Easy peasy!. Chicken can be baked or boiled and used all week for salads, sandwiches, casseroles or frozen for easy Homemade Noodles or Pasta. Love this!
