It's difficult to get coupons for fresh meat and poultry. So, when meat goes on sale, I like to buy larger quantities to take advantage of the cheaper $/lb. price! For example, smaller packages of ground beef were $2.49/lb., but if I bought 5 lbs, I could get it for $1.99/ lb. How do you deal with bigger quantities of meat that you can't use it right away?
Freeze it of course. I pulled out some of my free Glad Wrap from Publix, my kitchen scale, and my ground beef. I freeze it in little patties of 4 to 5 oz. each. They freeze and thaw so easily. One patty is perfect for adding to spaghetti sauce. For hamburgers, I pull out as many patties as I need burgers, and for meatloaf I thaw out 5 or 6!
