Not A Stupid Question ( I asked the same when I started )
I use wax paper or freezer paper lined on cookie sheet – foil
sometimes will stick to food…..
place in freezer to firm up then pull out to bag/label for more perm
freezer stay (flash freeze will help handle the food easier)
I do oanightc (same as once a month or oaweekc ) except can not
multi task (do it all in one day) my brain just does not function
when i make a meal – just double up – freeze 1/2 for a supper the
next time( there is only 2 of us and sometimes I can get 4 meals out
of a double recipe )
Since doing this – No more science projects from fridge thrown into
the garbage After spring cleaning fridge/pantry one time – seeing
all the food wasted from freezer burn or stale I swore off bulk
buying because if you end up throwing it out – you do not save!!
saved for a year for a foodsavor (a dollar here & there) found a
great one at Target – model #1200 for $139. worth every penny!!
more throw always except scraps from our plates ….
So in reality It has paid for it self over & over
At first did not know if I would actually save So on paper tallied
up things thrown – and only 1 item in 2 months and it was celery
thought I cut up to be frozen and forgot
My freezer is full ( runs more efficient then 1/2 empty freezer) We
can go many nights w/o cooking and have a healthier meals in minutes
It does require some planning (freezer charts – so you don’t forget
what you have in there, etc ) There are many useful web sites (( One
is here at Budgets home ” fill the freezer “)) on how to get started
and useful tips / recipes just do a search on “oamc”
hope this helps somebody
adieu, adios, arrivederci, auf wiedersehen, au revoir, bye-bye,
