There are so many things that I make and freeze or re freeze so that I don’t waste food, but also so I have options. My husband isn’t one for left overs so sometimes I have to put to use the left overs! What do I do with it?
First things first always make recipes whenever possible and freeze them. You will appreciate on days when groceries are running low or you don’t know what to make! Some things that I make and freeze are lasagna (fully baked), banana nut bread, pumpkin bread, pulled pork. Each of these items require a small amount of heating once it is taken out but other than that you are good to go.
As far as left overs. I try to keep them in tupperware in the order to eat them up by in the fridge. If they are in the fridge longer than a day I automatically put it in the freezer and label it. This is perfect for those days that you don’t want to make lunch or dinner and know you can just pull something out of the freezer and it’s ready. Something as simple as pulled pork, chicken chopped and seasoned, soup, etc. Anything can be freezed so make sure that you take advantage of this. It will save you time and money, trust me.
