Freezing Foods With The ‘Use By’ Date

Whether you are freezing meats (cooked or uncooked), baked goods, or whatever it is this tip might just help you.

Confession: I have thrown away TOO many things in my freezer because I simply didn’t know if it was “still good.”

I didn’t want to kill off my family by attempting to cook something or thaw something that might be, well, old–expired.

Solution: Now whenever I freeze anything, I put the date I stuck it in the freezer as well as the date that it must be used by. That way, the lazies aside, I can just make a quick decision about whether or not I can defrost/thaw/cook the item. I am trying to keep the items that are newest in the BACK of my freezer, so that I am using what needs to be used first.
