I get 8 - 10 patties out of one of those Costco packages of ground beef. I fry them on medium heat 5 minutes per side, so they are medium rare cooked. Some days they get a whole patty each mixed with roast beef, eggs and any other leftover meat I may have, other days they get a half a patty each mixed with cooked chicken thigh meat, roast beef and any other meat I may have leftover. Cheese, sardines and greek yogurt get mixed in a few times a week as well. I weigh nothing, I just eyeball what they're getting. You're doing it a whole lot more scientifically than I am.

LoL, ok. Hopefully I'll eventually be comfortable enough to eye everything someday

I never thought of doing that! My kitchen was a WRECK. I had liver boiling in one pan, burger in one, sweet potatoes in one and eggs in another! I don't think I've ever felt so lost, or disorganized in my kitchen

Oh! We have a bulk barn... I'll go check it tomorrow after work

Hope it gives another idea.

I had a friend that made a stew type meal for her dog, froze it in meal size containers, and would take out 4 or 5 days at a time. They would thaw in the fridge, and if I had to feed the dog, I would dump the container in his dish, and then wash the container for the next time she did the cooking. I believe she made it, then cooked it in the oven, but I cannot ask her, as she has passed away. I do remember carrots, peas, meat, I think she added some rice, and maybe some yam/sweet potato., and of course made gravy from the meat drippings after.

take care
I thought about making it into a stew... I think maybe I'll try that this weekend, thank you!
