I am a busy mom. I home school 4 of my kids, and my youngest daughter is disabled. I have days where I am running all over with appointments, and totally forget about supper. Don't all Mom's have days like that? What is the normal reaction? Take Out. Unhealthy, quick, convenient, expensive Take Out.
I was getting sick of days like that. Days I forgot to take the meat out the night before so I could use my slow cooker. Days where money was tight, so supper would be late because I had to wait to cook until I got home.
Solution? Freezing pre-cooked ground beef. This has been a life saver for me. Each pay day I buy a large pack of ground beef. I alternate between frying up the beef, and freezing it, and making a giant batch of meat balls. This week was a meat ball week.
I figure, meat balls take the same amount of time to cook no matter how big of a batch, so I am saving money in my baking time too! Only 1 round in the oven, rather than 4.
