Hearty Beef and Bean Ragu

Hearty Beef and Bean Ragu

I love to cook...just not every night!  This is a little gift to my future self. 

Whenever I can, I cook enough to freeze a couple of extra dinners worth.  Let the meal cool a bit and put it into freezer bags labeled with the recipe name and the date. Squeeze as much air out as possible and then set it on a tray.  Put the tray in the freezer overnight and it will freeze into nice, flat, easy-to-store portions. 

Next time you need a quick meal, just reach into the freezer for a healthy dinner that's ready in less than 15 minutes!  To defrost, just break into pieces and place in a covered pot on low heat, stirring occasionally.  It'll defrost and heat up in very little time. 

I promise, you'll thank yourself for this.  Enjoy your evening doing something just for you! You know you deserve it!
