Borrowed the idea from Frugal Queen and her bottom of the freezer cooking post.
Hubby and I sorted the freezers (above the spare fridge & small chest) yesterday, we unearthed a couple packs ancient meats - of course they weren't dated and were heavily freezer burned looking - those were tossed out, along with some burger patties that were now white and ice crystals in the bag, undated so out! But in the sort we came across a pack of drumsticks and a twin pack of Cornish game hens bought last winter. The hens were $.98/#. That's all thawed and cooking away in the crockpot - will debone when done and use for pot pie & soup this week.
We bought the hens (3-4 twin packs) thinking the kids would get a kick out of eating them - we both grew up eating them and it was a fancy 70s thing to have this little chicken on the plate. Our kids were not impressed. In fact the youngest was nearly in tears equating them to veal chickens - even though we assured this child these were fully grown birds.
Rather than waste them - they'll sub in for their larger cousins. The drumsticks are in because I like dark meat in soup and there were only 4 in the pack.
Also saw in the freezer:
Pies from band fundraiser - dessert for Easter dinner done!
A few Banquet pot pies (the little ones)
3 Celeste individual pizzas (I will eat those for lunches or dinners next time they are all away)
2 OS Roaster birds
2# bag of shrimp - Easter appetizer done!
2 packs of ground turkey - taco soup night & 'meat' sauce
1 London broil in there....hoping I can get to the grill soon if the snow ever melts
2 packs of steak - again, stupid snow!
Hot dogs - weekend lunches
Will need a deal on frozen veggies soon - I have enough packs for this weeks dinners, then it's canned.
