      *The reason for the low cost of these meals is that I bought four 5-lb packages of ground beef marked down due to sale date for $4.36 each in September (I bought every single package that they had). I immediately packaged them up in 1-lb portions in baggies, flattened them out to fit in the freezer, and froze them. That comes to about $1.14/lb. This week I’m defrosting six packages for dinners (some will get a little extra beef), hence the differences in prices. Plus, the cost of some of the ingredients have been ignored since they were on hand in the pantry;-D Hope this helps somebody jump on the ‘bulk purchasing’ in a regular store when the price is right! LOL!
