What's cooking?

Gathering some of the ingredients that transform this into future meals.

Food in the freezer's like money in the bank!

Four lbs. of ground turkey(93/7),a few other
ingredients & a bit of time yields wholesome convenience for a future time. I'd love to share the recipe but copyrights prevent me. (Don't they expire after a certain amount of time?) Six future meals that might be Smothered Meatballs;Spaghetti & Meatballs; a Meatball Hero,Swedish Meatballs or anything else involving said ingredient.
Sometimes this is called "Quantity Cooking" or "Once a Month",basically it's making a larger quantity than normal to freeze for a later date.Cheaper than buying prepared food & home made is almost always a healthier bet as well.No added chemicals, preservatives or coloring.
An easy way to do this is to make double one of your favorite recipes that freezes well,eat one that night & pop the other in the freezer-dated & labeled ,of course, for a future dinner. It's a very easy way to solve the I'm -exhausted- what- do -we- have -for -dinner dilemma.
The "Make- A- Mix" cookbook I show here has mixes for every part of eating that you could think of plus recipes to use each master mix.It's a really fun cookbook.Now, with just the two of us,I reduce the size of some of the mixes to be sure we use them up quickly enough.
It was also a good time to straighten my freezer!!!

Hey I have that book too! :-) We got it for a wedding gift 29 years ago. I haven't used it much lately. You make me want to get it out and use it!
