I added to my freezer today. Aldiís was selling frozen duck breasts and I picked up a package. There are in a package. These are much easier for me to cook as a single person on the whole ducks that I have in my freezer. So these probably will not last very long.

I've seen those, GB, and I want to try them some time. The only time I've cooked duck, it was just okay. The meat was kind of dry (probably overcooked), but I had about a cup of duck fat for cooking, and that alone was worth it. If you want to buy a container of duck fat at my grocery store, it's about $5-6 for about the same amount off one bird.

I added a bit, too, but only after I used up a fair bit. I made a veggie stew for DH that he never ate, but now it's frozen and that'll be a quick meal for him.

I found the same thing when I cooked whole duck. I wasnít impressed with it. But I enjoyed the duck fat that I was left with. Iíve enjoyed the frozen duck breasts more than cooking the entire duck.

Veggie stew, huh? Meal prep seems like a good reason to add to the freezer.

Woo-hoo, I finally emptied and defrosted the chest freezer!

I think I want to try to keep it empty/unplugged for a while, and keep using up what's in the fridge freezer.

I have been taking advantage of the hot weather, and defrosting and organizing the freezers in the garage. Iím finding things that I had forgotten were there, and a few things that have been there too long LOL. I also found numerous containers of chicken broth: part of a jar that wasnít finished, or the occasional jar that didnít seal during the canning process. I pulled all of them from their various corners & combined them, and now have 7 pints of newly canned broth, and quite a bit of ďnewĒ space in the freezer.
The other day I made a Mexican flavored soup/stew with frozen chicken thighs and some frozen tomatoes.

Made a Thai inspired soup for dinner: chicken & TJís seafood mix from the freezer, chicken broth canned earlier today, coconut milk & shiitake mushrooms from the pantry, veg from the freezer (beans & spinach), various herbs & condiments from the spice shelf, a bit of lemon grass from the garden, garlic, onion, ginger . Was quite nice, & enough for lunch tomorrow.

I meant to re-activate this thread, too. I plugged the chest freezer back in about a month ago when a bunch of DH's crapola was on sale by the case. I've also backslid into the habit of buying more than we'll eat, though. The upstairs freezer is packed again.

I HAVE gotten better at telling myself while shopping, "don't buy that until what we have is gone!" There are certain staples I won't let us run out of, and/or store well (eg pickles), but my instinct is to grab it while it's on sale, then figure out what to do with it when I get home. Bad habit.

Arielle - I love frozen ground meats for that reason. Almost anything you can make from it will freeze well.
