ready to defrost.

Maybe it's the recent emotional temperature. but I've got a hankering to defrost. And the physical ritual of working on a freezer may symbolically satiate the soul.

Which means that I need to salvage a bit of creative inspiration to utilize the freezer contents in the next couple of weeks. No more grocery shopping. It shall be freezer eats for us all.

Currently on my list:
  1. Café Rio - love this recipe. It makes enough that I freeze half.

  2. Pad Thai - Costco style

  3. Tator Tot Casserole - I have all the ingredients. But it seems that I am the only one that likes this. How is that possible? Who doesn't love tator tot casserole? Anyone have a good recipe for this? Maybe I need a new recipe.

  4. Chicken Salad Sandwiches - I have lots of frozen cooked chicken. AND lots of frozen croissants... Problem: they have been in the freezer a long time. And probably taste more like the freezer than France.

  5. Chicken Ceasar Wraps- More cooked chicken. AND tortillas

  6. Orange Chicken, Rice, and Edamame - Costco style. Again. But almost through with chicken and edamame. That will free up some space.

  7. Meatballs - We may be eating these for an entire week. But I am determined.

  8. Popsicles - I think we will all enjoy these for a couple of meals. And they will meet our fruit requirement. Right?

My mother has started making meatball subs from her frozen meatballs. Pretty tasty!

I love tater tot casserole! I haven't made it in a while though. Something about lots of cheese, sour cream, cream of chicken/mushroom, ground beef, onions and of course tater tots.

Popsicles definitely equal a fruit serving. I think.

Hey - Meatball subs. Fabulous idea. I need your mom's recipe. Does she put sauce with them? If so, what kind?

And I've never put sour cream in tater tot casserole. Maybe Clin would eat it if I tried that.

She cooks them in spaghetti sauce. Then you make cheese toast, and put the meatballs + mozzarella cheese on top. Broil until cheese is melted. DELISH!
