Frugal Fridays- More Ground Beef
This is a very simple tip, one that some of you might already know about. But for the rest of us....:-)
I buy the 5 pound rolls of ground beef at Wal-Mart. I used to always cut them into 1 pound chunks to freeze in ziploc bags. Now I cut the roll into 6 pieces instead of 5. We get at least one more meal out of the roll and when mixed into soups or casseroles, we never miss the extra meat!
Another way to stretch the meat is to add a spoonful or two of browned ground beef to a freezer container every time you cook some. After a couple of weeks, you will have enough for another recipe.
These are just little ways that I'm able to stretch our grocery dollars a little further!
