Challenge: cook your way through your freezer (part 2)

Recommended Posts

Dinner tonight consisted of BS chicken breast (freezer), potato (pantry), chicken stock (freezer) & broad beans (freezer), with a few flavourings etc. 

Now I know how the majority of you feel about boneless and skinless so I did at least brine them for a little bit, ( a trick I learnt about on EG, and got obsessed with for a little while, but I don't know which specific person or post to thank, apologies).

Roast Brussels, Green Beans & Steak (all freezer) with mashed carrots. Not going to lie the steak was awful. Thin, chewy, fatty in the not good way - I have a pretty good feeling I was meant to label the bag 'stir fry only' or perhaps 'Dogs' but labelling and I, are not great mates. 

I am getting slightly frantic with my freezer busting mission. I have 6 ish weeks left, and 3 (!!!) freezers. And I keep putting things in them. I have a problem.

I feel for you. Condensing my mother's two chest freezers into the smaller 7 cubic-footer was a heck of a challenge, and set me pretty far back in the quest to empty my own. :P

Working my way through the beef in mine in preparating for the new beef coming next month. Found two packages of "fajita strips." Doubt they'll wind up as fajitas, but they've got me thinking some sort of stir-fry this weekend. Maybe spicy Korean beef with veggies and rice?

 

Got a sirloin tip steak in the fridge now I thawed out Sunday and didn't use. Stroganoff tonight, I think. Have mushrooms, too.
