What To Do With All That Chicken? We all stock up on chicken breasts when we find them at a stockpile price, and several Wiz Kids order their chicken through Zaycon Foods when they do their Chicken Across America Event.

Saving on ground beef can be hard if  there is not a good sale going on at the time.  Meat is one of those item that usually does not come with a coupon so you have to get creative to find savings. A good sale is the time that I try to buy a whole cow if possible and stock up. My local grocery store was having a good deal on ground beef so I bought six 3 lb family packs. This usually will last my family of six until the store runs the sale again.  That’s a lot of ground beef but there are a few … [Read more...]

Freezer Friendly Foods

    Do you ever pause before buying something that's on sale because you know you won't eat it right away and you're not sure if it can be frozen? In most cases the answer is yes. If you see an item frozen in the store then you can freeze it yourself. I freeze just about everything including leftover cooked food to use in other recipes later. I throw nothing away, not even 1/4 cup of left over green beens etc. I add foods like that to recipes like soups at the end of the … [Read more...]
