Freeze Your Meals - Thaw Out Your Time!




Panning your meals in advance is a success, and this tip will help you one step further. I like to buy the family packs of meat and the separate them into meal appropriate portions. It's extremely economical. Before freezing, season your meat with whatever seasonings and/or marinade. As the meat thaws out they will marinate as well and you can have so many meals prepared in advance this way. It also saves you time because you are doing all the seasoning at once.

More Information:

It also helps to label the bags. It's easy to forget what's inside. Also, larger meats like sausage or roasts, are sometimes better when cut before freezing to reduce thawing time and aid in preparation for cooking.

    That's a great tip. You can also weigh your meat as you package it if you are preparing meals for yourself as a single. I like to buy the packages of organic chicken breast and divide them into portions of 4 oz./each before I freeze them. - by CHERYL3211
