I do not want to spend hours at one time cooking enough food for a month or more. So I am doing it in stages. Our freezer is really only the top of a refrigerator so could not get that much in any way.
Here is Stage 2 Souper Good Meat Loaf .. Stage 1 was our really tasty Chili
My recipe for meat loaf is off the Lipton Onion soup box.
The recipe calls for two pounds of hamburger
1/3 cup of ketchup
16 or so crushed saltine crackers
1 Tablespoon of Worcester sauce.3/4 cup of water
Mix all ingredients together and shape into 2 loafs.
We then baked for an hour if we plan to eat right away.. This makes 8 servings.
That is stage 2 of my Freezer Cooking Plan.. I now have 3 dinners of Chili for 2, 1 light lunch for 2 and 2 meat loafs that for the 2 of us will make 4 meals.
Thanks for stopping by.. Lets keep saving together .. and watch for stage 3 Freezer meals coming. I have 3 pounds of ground beef waiting for me to make meals with... Grace
