We got a super fantastic beef deal on Friday. Giant roasts were on for $1.87/lb, and we got four of them, each weighing in at around 6 lbs. This is our favourite way to buy beef, because we cut them into smaller hunks so we have many options for cooking. The four roasts turned into fourteen 1.5 - 2lb portions that we froze and will use over the next few months as roasts, steaks, beef strips, or stewing meat. I have to say I am pretty excited about it and with winter coming I am loving that we have 24 lbs of meat in the freezer.

I'm really looking forward to turning these 14 hunks of beef in my freezer into many fabulous meals. If we cut the beef into strips we can make one of our favourites: fajitas.

  1. That's they way I do it as well. Nothing like a good sale and a well-stocked freezer. Also, I like how you set up your how to photos. I'm going to be doing more of this myself, now that I'm on rest and recovery time.

    1. Having a full freezer makes me feel like I'm doing something right. :)

      I really like playing around with photos and seeing what I can do with them. It is nice to display things differently from time to time. Looking forward to see what you do with photos too! :)
