I've been doing fairly well eating from the freezer, but DH wanted ribs from the grill for the 4th, so I had to by the ribs. But I did roast a chicken out of the freezer last week, and got several salads out of it, as well as 3 quarts of chicken stock.

I get raspberries on those two for one sales, distributed them flat throughout a gallon bag, and the next morning I have bite-sized popsicles.

Really good!

I still have blueberries in my freezer from the farmerís delivery I got a couple months ago. I love them. Iím trying to vary my proteins. Yesterday I had grass-fed ground beef. The day before it was shrimp. I just took a pound of chicken livers out of the freezer to have for tomorrow. Not sure about the next day yet.

Iíve not been as good as eating of of my freezer as itís so easy now to get next-day curbside pickup at Walmart so Iím constantly buying new stuff now rather than eating what I have. Itís mostly all meats so maybe I should just avoid meats in my grocery orders for a while. But I do get those yens for shrimp.

You just reminded me of the shrimp I have in the freezer that's peeled but not cooked. So I'm just boiling it in the microwave and then making it into the Mexican Shrimp Cocktail.

So much for freezer emptying. I remembered that today is $10 pizza day at Papa Murphyís and I love their keto pizzas. (All the toppings served in a dish, no crust). Havenít had one in a while and I have a yen for the chicken artichoke. So Iím ordering pizza today and the chicken livers went back into the freezer for another time. 😉

I've never heard of Papa Murphy's before - didn't realize anyone was making crust-less pizza like that commercially. I've been making "un-pizza" like that for quite a while, since the toppings are what I really like about pizza. The toppings have all the flavor - the crust is just an unnecessary carrier to hold the toppings.

Searching the freezer this morning because I am out of bacon

I found a 4pk of sausage on a stick which said it's award winning so I found a flat cast iron tortilla cooker thingie that I haven't used in 20 years, cleaned it up, oiled it and put in the oven to cure a little. Now I'm baking the sausages on that. The flat tortilla thing is like a round griddle with a rim around the edge to hold in the fat dripping off of the sausage.
I'm so glad I found this thing again.

Now that I'm working full time again, it's time to make good on the extra cooking/shopping I did during my 6-month layoff and eat down the freezer. Yesterday, I re-did the whiteboard on my fridge that reminds me of what's in the chest freezer. Said freezer, we've had for 2 or 3 years now, IIRC. We 'inherited' it from my B/SIL. It's starting to get an ice/snow buildup, so I'd like to empty it, defrost it and clean it out.

What I need to use up from there: a couple packs of chicken wings, a pork tenderloin that's starting to resemble an Arctic core sample ( ), a bag of scallops, pork cooked in broth (love those .89/lb pork shoulder sales), pork broth from the same pork shoulder, and some tomato puree. My goal is to do it by my Christmas layoff.

I'm focused on emptying my freezer by November 3 because I have to have the house tented for termites and the less food in the freezer (and fridge and house in general) the less prep work there is. Last week, I cooked one of the two turkeys that were in the freezer. The week before, I cooked the 5# of chicken wings. That leaves me with: a turkey, a duck, a package of shrimp, a package of mixed seafood, one small log of frozen ground beef, some packages of frozen veggies, a couple of frozen patties (salmon burgers I think) and a couple of one-off wrapped chicken thighs. This is totally doable by November 3. I think. Speaking of which ... I guess I need to start defrosting the turkey when I get home this evening. Then I can cook it this weekend.
