Remember that post about freezing things in muffin tins? Well, I have another idea based on this concept that will knock your socks off! Okay, maybe not, but at least it might make your life easier (it has mine!).
When you have leftover sloppy joes (or taco meat, soup, or anything else of that consistency) spoon the leftovers into a muffin tin. Cover the tin with saran wrap and freeze overnight. The next morning, set the tin into a pan filled with warm water. Then pop the blocks out, put them in a plastic freezer bag labeled with the contents and date and put the bag in the freezer.
Now you have lunch or dinner ready to go at a moments' notice! I send these (along with some bread, of course) to work with my husband. They don't take long to defrost and are a yummy, filling, and cheap lunch.
This works for me! See many other Works for Me Wednesday ideas at Rocks in My Dryer!
