Tuesday's Tip 6: Cook & Freeze
If you’re going to cook, might as well double up and make two (or triple and make three), then freeze the other(s) to heat later. This will help you out on those nights when you just don’t want to cook. Instead of heading to a restaurant, you can throw a pre-cooked meal into the oven to heat for a delicious meal at home.
This is also great, because you can stock up when something is really cheap and you don’t have to worry about using all of it before it goes bad. I’ve been buying meat and other items when they are marked down to rock bottom prices, because they’ve almost reached the end of their shelf life. I cook them up immediately and freeze them for later. Even things like bread, muffins, waffles, and pancakes can all be frozen for a quick reheat. This will also stop you from throwing away food. Before it expires, cook it and freeze it! I make a lot of items to freeze from very ripened bananas and other fruit.
