Feeding the freezer

Two one-pound packages of frozen ground beef wrapped in clear plasticWhat is “feeding the freezer?”  It’s just making extra of whatever you are cooking and freezing it for later.  For example, if broccoli or chicken are on sale this week, buy a little extra, cook it, and freeze what you don’t eat.   You can even freeze fruit when it’s in season and use it in smoothies or other fruit dishes.  Store your leftovers in single-serving freezer bags or containers, and date them so you know how long they’ve been frozen.  Then when you are in a hurry and don’t want to spend money to eat out, just grab what you want and reheat it. Or throw several items together for a delicious winter stew.  It’s great, healthy “fast food” right in your own kitchen!
