Tongue out



t - cookies in the freezer.  I just pile them in a Zip Loc freezer bag and remove all possible air. Iwis I could find a way to freeze eggs.

I freeze lots of  home-made soup and chili - things like that.   I pour that into pint size freezer bags and freeze them flat.  I pile the small bags into a big freezer bag, date it and toss it in.

GRANA here;I pkg ground beef in 4 OZ/1/4# patties ( 1/2 cup packed firmly) when I get home fom the store; hubby puts away the perishables, so I have time to do this. These patties thaw faster for browning meat to use in dishes & I can quickly & easily( no messy hands), make BIG brgers, whenever he or guests  want burgers. Wink
?Need more meat fr your recipe?; thaw 2 patties for 1/2 #  4 patties for a full #; etc..
To make patties, fill 1/2cup measure w/ firmly packed ground meat, press into patty shapes o f even thickness on lids from cottage cheese containers; werap in plastic wrap & freeze in zip top bags
.
A little time spent on this one day will save you much time in the weeks to come; deffinitely worth it!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
