Baking for The Future: Filling the Freezer

Today I cooked up a really big batch of rice. I put 2 cups each in freezer bags and off the the freezer it went...Rice takes so long to cook, this makes for a nice shortcut.I also had cooked a Boston butt pork roast...approx 10 pounds in the slow cooker yesterday. I then put it in the fridge to cook. This morning, I scooped off all the fat, trimmed off all the fat and then just shredded it up.

This meat is so full of fat...I then took it and warmed it up in the microwave to get the fat still left in the meat to liquefy. I put it then in a colander and ran hot water over it until i got all the fat I could out of it. Squeezed the excess water out of the meat, and packed in freezer bags...I put about a cup of meat in each bag.

These are perfect for BBQ Sandwiches or putting in casseroles, etc.
I have a few recipes I want to share tomorrow.
If you did any batch baking or cooking....share it with us...Share recipes too. I need ideas
