Y’all know I love blogging about my freezermeals .
What didn’t realize was that my freezer has developed quite a reputation.
So I guess it’s time to empty out the ‘Previously Frozen’ file in my photo storage center one more time, eh?*
*I’ve turned Canadian. Because it’s cold there. Like the freezer. Where I kept these raspberry almonds. Get it? Maybe?
And this time, no Brussels sprouts. (!) I never said ANYTHING about previously frozen green and wax beans (and carrots), though.
After trying to get too fancy and glaze them with some Trader Joe’s Roasted Red Pepper & Artichoke Tapenade, I learned my lesson and glazed them with a hummus yogurt sauce instead.
And egg yolk, of course.
Clearly ketchup egg yolk is the best glaze for many a previously frozen vegetable.
Like this previously frozen broccolirabe that I sauteed with fresh onions, then mixed up with Coconut Miso Glazed Parsnips & Carrots , with runny eggs on hummus-coated Asian rice puff cakes.
One of my other favorite frozen veggies is thesugar snap pea. I may or may not have popped a steamable bag in the microwave at ten o’clock at night for a bedtime snack once or twice.
(And see what I mean about ketchup egg yolk?)
I even managed to somehow eat previously frozen EGGS.
I know, you thought it couldn’t be done. But I did it.* *Thanks to a coupon, because I’m cheap and rarely by pre-made meals. But then I ALSO had a free coupon for a Lean Cuisine Honestly Good meal, so of course I tried that out, too.
[After forgetting about it in the freezer for months.]
It was actually pretty tasty–and I classed it up by transferring to a separate bowl–although those meals always seem so SMALL. (Am I right?)
Of course, there is nothing quite so joyful as concocting a meal with a little frozen on frozen action, like the previously frozen onions and peppers I mixed with frozen shrimp for my Southwestern Shrimp ‘n’ Hominy Grits .
Or when I had frozen half of the herbed pizza dough from Trader Joe’s, and made a roasted veggie pizza with roasted veggies that were–yep–also once upon a time frozen.
Frozen on frozen.
Is that some new type of cheapskate broke blogger food porn?
If it isn’t, frozen Pumpkin Molasses Oat Cookie crumbles with Cinnamon Peanut Flour Goop must be.
