Stewards of the Food Budget

All kitchen slaves must remember they are stewards of the food budget. Anytime you are in the grocery store be on the look-out for bargains! This is one such windfall that will make possibly six main dishes when you are cooking for two. The price? $15.00, yes, slave had to buy three packages for a total of 12.5 lbs of chicken. This will not go to waste because we are going to portion them and freeze!

Entries for four meals ready for the freezer and two meals for fixing in the next couple of days. Plus a happy Master seeing how responsible slave is with the food budget.

3 packages of chicken thighs
box of zipper bags for freezer
wax paper


MOST important keep washing your hands! Slave washed his hands five times while portioning out these.

Lay out a couple of sheets of foil or wax paper to cover the counter.

Open 10 to 12 zipper bags according to the number of thighs are in the packages. For meals, plan on two thighs per person.

Pull out about 3 foot or so of wax paper and fold in half lengthwise.

Cut on the fold, then cut into thirds. These do not have to be precise but plan on about 1 foot to wrap 1 thigh.

Open the thighs. Take out a thigh and wrap it in wax paper. Stuff it into a bag. Now the second thigh does not have to be wrapped.
The wax paper is so the frozen pieces of chicken will not stick together, so as long as wax paper separates them you are good to go.
Set the still open bag to the side and proceed to the next.

When one package is used up, WASH YOUR HANDS.
Press out as much air as you can and seal the bags.

Now continue to the next package.

WASH YOUR HANDS again before opening the freezer door! Put as many in as you wish and keep the rest for the refrigerator.

Throw away any paper or foil you had on the counter. Spray with a disinfecting spray, then follow up with normal cleaner and wash your hands again. Get the picture. There are nasty stuff that can make your Master and His guests sick if you are not careful.

Trust slave on this one. It is NOT sexy to have to run to the bathroom or the ER after a well cooked meal.

For our music:

Serving my Master Indy
To satisfy and restore.
To nourish, support and maintain.
To gratify, spoil, comfort and please,
to nurture, assist, and sustain
..I cook!
