I bought 20 lbs of meat today. :shock: 11 lbs of chicken and 9 lbs of beef.
The chicken will be cooked with veggies then all shredded together and split into freezer bags to be used for any recipe calling for chicken.
I'll also use the bones to make a bunch of broth.
The beef will be split.
4 lbs will go to meat mix which is similar to the chicken mix.
I will also take 1 or 2 lbs of the finished product, mix it with 1-2 lbs of cooked lentils and season it for tacos (thus doubling the meat).
The other 5 lbs of meat goes into meat sauce mix which is more of a tomato based meat sauce. I use it for shepherds pie and such.
I find it's a good way to increase veggie consumption and also makes dinner so fast when the meat is cooked.
I also bought:
TP for the year. 36 double rolls. We will go back to using family cloth and use the TP for when visitors come over.
Trash bags for the year (and got a $5 gift card for this one, used it for diapers).
Ordered cloth pull ups for the potty training guy.
Ordered laundry soap for the year.
I'm glad I waited to stock up on toothpaste, I came home and went through the bathroom. I found 6 half used of grown up toothpaste, 3 half used kids toothpaste and 4 dentist samples!
