I went to the grocery store today and bought a bunch of meat. Oh, I bought other things too, but I was sure to stock up on meat: 1-inch thick pork chops, turkey brats, ground chicken, pork tenderloin, and ribs. I unloaded when we got home and helped put it all away. Then I did some prep.

It's a move I am making to help make dinner time easier and therefore less tempting to go out. Eating in is cheaper and healthier. I put marinades and spices on the meats and then put them in heavy duty freezer bags. Now all we have to do is take it out of the freezer a couple of days before we want to eat them. Stick them under the broiler and cook. Done and done.

I also bought some salt-free spice mixes. The wife really wants us to keep sodium intake as low as possible. I've found several good spices sans salt from Mrs. Dash, McCormick, and Cavender's.
