Spontaneous Freezer Mealing

Sunday, March 17, 2013

So, my heart started going pitter patter when we walked towards the meat case and I saw those awesome orange stickers...that means cheap meat day!!!! *does the cheap meat dance* then we decided to splurge on some steaks (a "splurge" is anything over $1.99/lb in my world). It was another good protein day at Sam's Club!

When we arrived back home, I realized would I have to do something with all this meat and I really hadn't contemplated it much up until this point. I threw together some red wine vinegar, olive oil and other randomness as a marinade for the steaks, splitting the pack in half (half for tonight half for the freezer). Two dinners prepped and ready to throw on the grill!

With the jumbo pack of chicken thighs I made a batch of Man Pleasin' Chicken (believe it or not, we haven't had this in awhile) for later this week and another one for the freezer. Then....I took the last bit of chicken and stared at it. Then I looked over at the left over BBQ sauce from our BBQ takeout lunch. I planned on throwing it out...but what a waste! I totally threw it all in a ziplock bag, threw the boneless, skinless thighs in with it, squished it up and tossed it in the freezer. Not sure if this was beyond cheap, or genius...but I was proud of my thriftiness! :)

In about 15 minutes time I was able to prep 5 dinners...that seems to be my super power...what is yours?
