3 tips for Planning Meals ahead of time.

Daftar Isi: (toc)

I'm not too fond of the term 'Hacks' but I do like sharing my tips and hints for meal planning.   Especially since I do plan ahead, have always done so, and will probably continue to do so.

Up until the past few years, I've always lived within just a couple of miles of grocery stores, it was easy to just run down and pick up a couple of things.   But I still planned ahead, even then.

It just wasn't as critical as it is now.

I now live 7 miles out of town, and albeit a lovely drive into town, without traffic, it's still 7 miles to go.

My habit of planning ahead has actually helped me a lot, here.   I head to the 'big city', which is 60+ miles away, once a month or so to stock up on ground beef, cause I know where to go to get it cheaper, and of course there are the specialty shops I like to wander around in.  The Oriental store, the Indian store, the store that has international foodstuffs.   Which can be a good thing or...

I usually come back with foods I want to try playing with, some of which I'd never heard of before.
Kinda like the Tat Soi I got in my Organic Vegetable share this week.   I'll tell you all about what I made with that in a future post.

1. A couple of weeks ago I bought ground beef, and buying it in bulk meant I had to go home, break it down into smaller packages and freeze them.    So now, when I want to make Taco's or Hamburger Steak, I just head to the freezer and pull out a package of meat.
 Freezing it flat, means it thaws much faster.
2. I ran into a sale on Chicken Breasts  at the store, so, they got seasoned, cooked and frozen.  I actually used them in Chicken Enchiladas the other day,  but I have more cooked breasts in the freezer, ready and waiting.

3. I also made a big pot of my Firehouse Chile, measured it out, and froze it.  Which meant, we had some for Navajo Taco's last week, and all I had to do was make the fry bread, and we had a good meal.
