Used it up!

Some time late autumn, we had a roast joint of pork. We got two meals out of it and the next day, the remainder was minced and frozen to add to soups etc.

Some has been added to vegetable chilli, curry, goulash, other bits into soups to give it a bit of extra taste.

We finally finished it Saturday in the curried vegetable soup. We reckon it was added to about 10 more meals in some form or the other, so all in all, a great thing to do.

On Sunday, we made a pie with the minced remains of our Christmas beef joint. I had also saved some of its lovely gravy, yum!

  1. It's our freezers that make it so easy to be truly economical and frugal isn't it. I don't know where I'd be without mine.

    1. Me neither but then I suppose if you shopped just for what you needed it in days gone by, maybe no need. Before I had a fridge let alone a freezer, I used to store things in tubs in cold water.

  2. I too have bits of meat to use up. That's my task for next week. Great use of leftovers.
