Eating out of the Freezer - Part 1

This time of year, we really start to get focused on eating out of the freezer. We will need the space for this years vegetables and, yes, we know we really should have been eating out of it more all along.

So, we took out some chicken breasts we bought on sale (Well, actually, everything that came from the grocery store that is in the freezer was bought on sale). My husband got a choice of about 4 or 5 options for cooking the chicken breasts and his choice was chicken fingers, which we have not had in awhile. We bread them in half parmesan and half bread crumbs and bake them on a reack in the oven. We served them with macaroni cooked with peas from the freezer and smoked gouda.

We took out 1/2 fillet of salmon which we grilled with a wonderful rub that is this weeks recipe on our website for swank recipes, click here and served it with a capellinni with fava beans, artichokes (also from the freezer) and spring carrots. It tasted of spring.

We also took out low fat ground turkey and had turkey burgers with cheddar and a pablano pepper relish served with cajun sautéed potatoes and a salad. Nice progress and didn't have to go to the grocery store all week.

Stay tuned for more freezer finds: London broil, more chicken and venison.
Eating well! Hope you are!
