too much meat

Does anyone else have a problem with buying meat, sticking it in the freezer, and forgetting about it? Today I went to the grocery store, came back with some great finds [buy one get one free on pork chops and then some marked down chicken/steaks]. I come back to put it in the freezer and realize I really need to go through and catalog what I have in there and START USING IT! What's the point of freezing it if it never gets used? 

This is what I had in there...
  • 1/2 lb ground turkey
  • almost 3 lbs of chicken breasts
  • 1 whole chicken
  • 1 flank steak
  • 1 lb stew meat
  • 2 sirloin rib eyes
  • 3 lbs ground beef
  • 6 mini sliders
  • and of course TONS of pork chops!
  • 3 seasoned chicken breasts

I officially have a problem. 

My goal is to use all of this meat in the next month. We will have some delicious meals with a low grocery bill. I'm starting tonight with some Parmesan Ranch Chicken

If you have any good recipes that use any of those meats, please send them my way!

  1. Man! I have a lot of meat, but nothing in comparison to your list. I love it when it makes my grocery bill low. Enjoy it! You're in a good place.

  2. We love to make pulled pork! I just put any cut of pork in the crock pot in the morning on low with a little bit of apple juice or root beer, depending on my mood. By dinner time it is ready to tear up and eat, with or without BBQ sauce, on a bun or a salad, with our favorite sweet potato fries.
    Simple, Easy, and Tasty!

  3. What a great idea, Aly! I think I'll make that tomorrow. I love crock pot recipes...they are the best because they are so low maintenance. Thank you for the idea!
