Spaghetti...probably the all-time favorite meal in our home. Brown meat, drain and add sauce. You can used bottled or make your own. Then put it in a ziplock bag and freeze. When you are ready for dinner, just defrost and make pasta. Voila!
Here is how I make spaghetti sauce for 5 pounds of meat:
3 cans tomato sauce
3 cans diced tomatoes, do not drain
1 small can tomato paste
1 T oregano
1 T garlic
1 T basil
1/2 T marjoram
1 T sugar
The longer it simmers, the better it will be. Perfect in a crock pot all day.

Another super easy way to use ground beef, chili! Brown the five pounds of ground beef and drain. Then add 3 cans of beans (I use black or kidney), 3 cans of stewed tomatoes, 4 packages of chili seasoning (I like McCormicks) and 1 large jar of V8 juice. We eat what we can that night and then I freeze the rest in freezer ziplocks. Make sure you write on the bag "Chili" with a Sharpie. I always think that I'll be able to recognize the beans, but I have been surprised more than once.
