All food is separated into portion-size bags, especially commercially bagged veggies and frozen meats, and yes I buy in bulk when there are specials. Fresh chicken (pieces) is usually cooked in bulk and frozen. Some fresh meats are marinated and frozen and some are precooked. Ground meat is almost always precooked and frozen.
This routine makes it easy cooking dinner for myself without to much work! That is a good cooking tips when you cook just for yourself, especially with recipes calling for ground beef and cooked chicken! NOTHING is considered a “leftover”!
Hamburger Helper and other casseroles are made, pastas and rice, especially brown rice, can be made ahead of time, bagged in portion sizes and frozen for future meals. Great cooking tips! I use good condiments, sauces not to expensive, everything that i buying is in a small portion!
