Re: How many trips to the grocery store?


My old aunt told me her mom froze turkey meat in broth and it would taste fresher. I trued it and yes.

Blah, even with only a turkey breast I have to debone it today. Daughter will trade any chore or bribe me, not to have to do it. Saving leftovers for Tettrizini.

At our store they were limit one. I cooked mine and the wife's in the freezer. Like you said it is hard to pass up.

Re: How many trips to the grocery store?


I haven't seen any turkey that cheap around here, most were 99 - $1.29 per pound. We paid 79 a pound and later I did see some at Walmart for 68 per pound.


Next time I hope my wife prepares less food - we had way too much leftover.

Too much leftovers? LOL. No such thing. I love not cooking the next 3 days.

Re: How many trips to the grocery store?


Well I'm still chewing on the 12 pounder I cooked, probably finish it in a soup this weekend. Nice hot soup goes great in cold weather.

Picked up two more, smallest they had were 14 pounds each. They will still be on sale tomorrow but i had to rearrange the freezer just to get those last birds in. May have to see if they have any freezers on sale.

I like leftovers but there's no way we can finish them off in 3 days.

That and other reasons is why I cook the quantities I cook.

Re: How many trips to the grocery store?


One more trip to the store but boy was it fun to have all the kids and grand kids here even if they did eat everything in sight.

So it was time to re-supply with ground beef and we're so fortunate to have a small town grocer about 4 miles away of highway driving. He will do custom orders so this ground chuck pictured was about 90% lean. The wife isn't really physically able to do meat department work like this so I whip that task out in 1Lb. packages with a smile enjoy every minute of it.

Re: How many trips to the grocery store?


My last post turkey day trip was huge success. They were overstocked on beef shoulder roasts and an I scored 10 pounds in 4 packages at less than a buck per pound. Only 2 of them are roast quality but we do love our beef veggie soup.

Re: How many trips to the grocery store?


I never grew up with a standalone freezer, nor had one.

Does anyone know their own cost per year?

Re: How many trips to the grocery store?


I have a small freezer [size of a washing machine] that I bought new for $100 back in 1992. It still work well. I have no idea what the operating cost is but it can't be much as I never noticed an increase in the elec bill.

One of my wife's top requests is for beef stew, which when I make it comes out more like a veggie beef soup, just very thick. I add a lot of veggies. Made one 2 days ago and got a text from her saying fantastic. Positive feedback always feels good.
@Nik333 if you check the appliance stores many new appliances will have a sticker that shows the annual cost at some electrical base. Adjust that base for your local rates and you will have a good idea as to what a new freezer will cost to run for a year. New ones are not very expensive.

Recipe? Maybe in a new beef stew thread?

Do you remember the old Stone Soup story?

The wife told the kids a story, when they were small, that's probably the same story but it was a rusty nail.


Doing a search I see several versions of this story.

When the 3 kids were young and at home we made the soup / stew in the canner pot and never threw any away. Now when it is just for the two us the we make baby batches.
