Freezer Food Fest #2
Posted by Caveman Cooking on December 30, 2009
It’s official! We’re moving!! So, I have been given a “request” by the Cavewoman to empty the freezer before we hit the road. The pressure is on!
After the huge success of the first installment of this challenge, or “Shalanje” as we like to pronounce it in the Cavehold, I didn’t want to attempt anything too ambitious for F3 #2. My prayers were answered when I stumbled upon this collection of Costco mini quiches that we had bought, and apparently forgotten about, for a party a few months back. Of course, making all 60 would have been overkill for the four humble Cavepeople I thought would be chowing on these. So, I put 10 of those little puppies on a baking sheet. However, I was immediately faced with severe doubt about their delectability by the Cavewoman, “Why are you making so many? They’re not going to be any good, and the kids won’t eat them.”
I proceeded, undaunted. Popped them into the 375° oven for 14 minutes (probably could have gotten away with 13), pulled the little cups of cheesy goo out for a 5 minute cool down, and readily volunteered for the Guinea Pig role. YUMMMMMM!
Caveboy stepped up to the plate next and hadn’t even swallowed his first bite when the “MMMMMMmmmmm’s” started. Next, Cavegirl was game and downed one before I could even ask her how she liked it. After three rave reviews, the Cavewoman finally relented. I didn’t react to her positive response other than to put on that self-satisfied smile that drives her nuts. By the way, I won’t give out the actual count but, apparently, the Cavewoman liked them the best. 😉
We still have 50 more of these babies to go. So, I expect us to have mini quiches for hors d’oeuvres a few more times before D-day.
On a side note, after seeing the first picture above, I’ve decided that if my voice over career ever hits the skids I might be able to make it as a hand model … don’t ya think?!?
