Cooking Day

I purchased about 35 pounds of chicken last night at Kroger. I figured today I would take some time to cook it up and assemble some meals to freeze. Kroger has the 10 lb bag of chicken quarters on sale for $5.90. The Tyson boneless chicken breast is on sale for $1.79 lb. I purchased 3 bags of leg quarters and 4 packs of boneless chicken. That combined with the turkey I already have in the freezer should serve us well.

Just a Side Note

I'm super excited to be almost done with the cleaning and organization in the bedroom. It should only take another day, after hubby hangs up the hooks and organizers. Wish me luck.

Some Uses For Frozen Veggies

I like to stock up. I especially like to stock up on free or cheap veggies. They are delicious, healthy, and make for quick and easy meals. I think they are great to whip up stir fry or lo mein on nights when we have vegetarian friends or family over. My sister is a vegetarian and I'm always able to whip up a healthy meal when she's over. Some dish I have used frozen veggies include soup, stew, stir fry, lo mein, meat loaf, as side items, and as a veggie rice dish. I think we bought close to 30 containers of frozen veggies when they were on sale last week and I am confident we can use them all up.
