Add a Little Chill to Your Summer!
Check out fsis.usda.gov and foodsafety.gov for some tips for freezing meals to save time during the week!
A few important notes - don't freeze:
...anything containing mayonnaise, cream sauce or lettuce
...canned food or eggs in shells
...cottage cheese, cream cheese, aerosol whipped cream, pudding, sour cream or tube cans of rolls or biscuits
...pre-stuffed, uncooked pork chops, lamb chops or chicken breasts.
Be sure to label and date packages you freeze to ensure that they are used in a safe time frame! To defrost, do so in your fridge, cold water or micorwave. Raw or cooked meat, poultry or casseroles can be cooked or reheated directly from the freezer without thawing first.
Just a few hints to keep your hectic schedule running smoothly!
