Quick Tip Tuesday: Cook Meat in Bulk

Next time you're whipping up a meal for yourself or your family, consider cooking 2 or 3 times the amount of meat that the recipe calls for (or even more, as shown in the picture!). I do this often with ground beef, and sometimes chicken - those are the staple meats in our house.  Then take out what you need for your current recipe, and divide the rest in to 1 or 2 pound increments - whatever you use more often.  Freeze or refrigerate this "extra" - but remember that if you put the meat in the fridge it needs to be used within a couple days! This makes meal prep so much quicker when you can just toss the meat in, already cooked ahead of time!
