Chunky Peach Applesauce
Hot dog buns spread with butter and broiled in the oven
- Brown all three pounds of hamburger from the package, instead of just the pound you need for that night’s meal. Put the other two pounds (about 2 cups each) into ziploc bags. The night before you’re having another ground beef meal, put the frozen hamburger in the fridge to thaw overnight.
- Same idea for the chicken used in this particular meal: buy bone-in chicken breasts at .98/lb. Remove the skin and filet the breasts to whatever size you want. These get frozen in ziploc bags, labeled with a sharpie, and added to your freezer organization chart. These thrifty packages also defrost overnight in the fridge and are so convenient!
- When you get home from the store, wash and chop vegetables before you put them away. I’m always glad to have chopped vegetables for salads or even for my husband’s lunch box!
