Freezer Chicken

I hope this photo doesn't gross anyone out. The night before leaving for Spring Break I was getting food for our trip and when I walked by the freezer case I saw the sign. Split chicken breasts $.49 a lb. !!!! Well, I took a moment to figure out if I really was going to make myself put up that much chicken when I needed to clean and pack. I told myself that, yes, I needed to make myself put up that much chicken because it was a great price. So, I put 6 packages in my cart that were around 3 1/2 lbs each. Last night I boiled half of it and sealed in in packages for the freezer. Today I was going to bake some with Greek seasoning but, I had a homeschool meeting and ran by CVS so I didn't want to have to watch it in the oven. So, I am now boiling the 2nd batch and will just put it up the same way after I make some chicken salad sandwiches for lunch.

All this when I am trying to eat up every single piece of meat in my freezer and defrost it and start fresh on the meats. Oh well, it is life with a coupon/ sale shopper. There is no cure. When we find a bargain we are getting it.

Make yourself feel better...

You will be "technically" starting fresh from what you "had" in the freezer because this chicken will just be the new meat you bought the day before you leave instead of the day after you return.

Just change the way you look at it and it all looks different. LOL

I’m a big fan of sorting, seasoning, and re-packaging my meats before freezing them. Saves me loads of time down the road.
