It is no secret. By now if you are following my posts you will uncover that I purchase most of my groceries at Costco. This is not an ad for them but please allow me to explain. The reason is that the quality of their products is high, and the prices are totally reasonable.
It was not so easy at the beginning. I had to be creative because I was purchasing in bulk for a household of 2. So, what was I supposed to do when I purchase a huge bag of organic baby peas or a pack of 2 pork tenderloins? Simply, I decided that instead of doing the freezing and thawing dance for a product, I would make it more user friendly.
When I bring the groceries home I do as everyone does, put the freezer products in the freezer and the fridge products in the fridge. Once I put all my perishables and non-perishables in place, then I begin to divide my perishables for 2 people, (you can do it for 4 or as large as your household is) and put them in small freezer bags.
I also divide my veggies and cut my meats based on the dishes that I have plan in my menu for the week. For instance, I divided the pork tenderloin in the photo, to use during the week in 4 different meals:
1. Pork tenderloin mignon, with bacon and mushrooms
2. Sauté pork with sweet baby peas
3. Homemade chili with the cubes you see in the photo
4. Pork Stir Fry, by cutting 2 of the round pieces into strips and adding broccoli and onions
