14 Packs Used

During the 9 nights we had ground beef, plus the pizza on Saturday, and 2 batches of Speck food, I  used 14 packs of ground meat.  That’s 21 pounds! 🙂


And, this was enough that I could clean off a shelf in the freezer so I can get a 50 pound bag of wheat in the freezer.  I’ll leave it in there for 3 or 4 days, take it out, let it come to room temp, dump about 3/4 of it into a huge mylar bag, stick several oxygen absorbers in there and seal, the bag, put it all in a bucket with a gamma seal lid . . to be safely stored til I need it.  I could use just a regular plastic lid but once I open that lid, I can’t re-seal it so I’ll just use the gamma seal lid and be done!

I’m happy to have some room in my freezer again and I’m happy that I don’t have to eat ground meat again . . til Sunday (which is exactly when I would have eaten it again if I was still doing the ground meat marathon . . if I’d kept my mouth shut!)

    Wow – 21 pounds! Go Judy Go! You’re a machine, when it comes to clearing out the freezer. I wish I had your stamina – I don’t know if I could have eaten all that meat so many nights in a row. Hope you enjoy a few ground beef-less dinners!

    Judy, this city girl wants to know why the wheat is stored in the freezer for a few days, before it is stored in another container? Does the freezer kill bugs or something?
