Do you dinner prep? We do…
Not all the time but we do love it when we do!
Dinner prep is just the act of making up larger batches of stuff that you can use easily. One thing we love to dinner prep with is ground beef.
You can brown a bunch of it, several pounds and then once cool, pop into reasonable amounts for some of your basic dishes. We make some smallish ones for taco meat or sloppy joes, maybe for spaghetti sauce. They can be about a half pound or so for the three of us. We can always use two baggies if we want to make something bigger like chili or goulash or perhaps doubled up for guests.
Another thing we love to do is make up a bunch of meatloafs! We love meatloaf. We will usually make up one nice large one so we can have dinner and then leftovers and then we will also make some smaller ones just for lunch or maybe to slice up for snadwiches. And the little muffin ones are great when we don’t feel like making a big dinner and someone just wants to pop one in the microwave for their own dinner plans.
There are lots of great websites out there that talk about meal prep. We love it. We often do sausage crumbles as well that are great for dinner dishes like our favorite Miss Earlenes sausage and noodles or for making breakfast burritos! Even quiche!
It’s just so nice to have half the job done and waiting in the freezer. When we don’t meal prep, I notice that we do a lot more carry out and that is just expensive if you do it too much. And I think it’s just healthier to cook from scratch. It’s lovely to eat out now and then, but too much and it’s a little boring and way too expensive. And you tend to just get too much of sugar and carbs, just not the best for people in general, if you ask me.
