I love making soups in large batches and freezing them. Buy the vegetables and meats that are on sale, cook and freeze. Then you don't need to eat the same stuff the whole week and get sick of it. In last two weeks I cooked enough soup and stews, they should last me till the end of November.First soup of fall, a beef and lentil stew. Money has become extremely tight of late, and meals this fall and winter are going to largely consist of veggies and beans or potatoes, with what my grandparents' would have considered normal meat portions. It's not bad, actually. In fact, as long as I keep the fiber up, it's a far better diet long term than the meat-heavy diet we were used to before we moved. Even better, we finally broke down and bought an InstantPot over the summer, so even really robust bean soups take less than an hour.
I've been seeing this more often in my area too. The big local italian place (Carfagna's) also has a market that sells their stuff ether fresh or frozen and they've always sold their sauce there... but now I'm seeing it pop up at the major retailers like Meijer and Krogers.Spaghetti with meat sauce. The local icon Italian restaurant sells their sauce at local groceries. I tossed the cooked pasta with EVOO and garlic. Om nom nom.
Yeah, seems to be canadian Mio.What is that ZAZ stuff? Is it a flavoring for water, i.e. your Kool-Aid?
