So, last week I conveyed the recipe for a meal casserole thing that I created in order to make a large meal batch that I can make from dry storage ingredients.
I made the meal on a week ago Monday, and ate that night as well as I ate well that week. I had two bowls a night, and still had enough left over for a meal each night this week.
This means that if I made this batch and stored it in my meal-sized portions and froze it, I could eat for three weeks on one batch.
Not bad, not bad at all. Again, I will need to change it up, and do something different, especially when winter comes as trying to open a frozen can of anything, sucks.
For now, though, I have enough food to last me for nine weeks . . . well, I have the canned goods to make three batches of this stuff, with the exception of the one pound of ground beef.
So, all in all, my food bills will be quite low for the foreseeable future, and that is not nothing!
The concept of me making these large batches of stuff and freezing meal-sized portions is to do my own version of industrial food preparation.
In so doing feed myself, yet at a much lower cost than making a nice meal each time.
Also, it’s much easier to take a bag out of the freezer (or one that has been defrosting in the fridge) and heat it up, rather than think up what to make for dinner (after working all day).
As always: Keep your head up, your attitude positive, and keep moving forward!
