    ncveteranswife-yes, I flash freezer everything on a cookie sheet before putting into a bag to keep it from sticking together. However, if you are using a frost free freezer (like a freezer attached to a fridge) where ice crystals are going to form faster on your foods, eventually the ice crystals will make the stuff stick together anyway. Just depends on how long you have the stuff in the freezer.

    I have a question: I cut up some fresh mangos and when I froze the chunks they stuck together. Can I put them individually on a cookie sheet, let them freeze and then put them in Ziploc bags and this will keep them from sticking together?

    Packy: I froze some apple slices and they turned out fine. I just put them in a bowl with lemon juice (to keep them from browning)and then put them in Ziploc bags in the freezer.

    Thanks heremeaj! I will be at my HT tonight and will work them over for some info! LOL

    Packy - here's a yummy looking recipe for baked apples!


    You can also search for baked apple recipes. They are delicious baked with butter, cinnamon, brown sugar, etc.

    My HT manager just confirmed triples for next week, and that 99 cents and under will triple. He said they considered triples up to one dollar but discarded that idea

    question...Bought a huge bag of apples and didn't eat them as I had planned... what can I do with them before they go bad? I don't bake much or even like applesauce so are there any other ideas out there? I thought about freezing them... I need to research that one.

    Faye...any idea when you will be doing another Drug Store shopping class?

    Bought one 500 count ibuprofen and one 500 count rite aid brand tylenol for BOGO at Riteaid = both for 13.99. It gave me back a 2.00 up reward that I wasn't expecting!! The 13.99 for both is no cheaper than walmart at regular price but I hate shopping at walmart and it would probably be out of stock anyway.
