Freezer Food Fest #6
Posted by Caveman Cooking on January 6, 2010
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!
It’s done! Our house has officially closed escrow, and we are officially squatters. Actually, part of the sale allows us to stay in the house for a month and a half gratis. This gives me about 40 days to attempt to complete my glacial gastronomic quest. Plenty of time … uh, huh! 😐
Fortunately, when I was pulling the Tri-tip out of the box for Freezer Food Fest #5, I came across some cold-hardened bacon. Sure, it wasn’t the biggest thing in there, and didn’t clear out much room. But, it was better than having to cannonball my way in there to find something to further the goal … because a clean freezer is a happy freezer.
Plus, it didn’t hurt that the Cavekids have recently discovered the joys of bacon. In fact, their bacon-celebration is somewhat akin to the dog in the “Beggen’ Strips” commercial. So it was, as the pig belly hit the griddle, began sizzling, and sent heavenly vapors wafting through the Cavehold that the short people came running into the kitchen and, upon discovering this meaty delight was destined for their gullet, launched into a victory dance that still has me rolling.
However, man, pre-historic or modern, can’t live by pork products alone. So, I whipped up a Cave Scramble and some Cavetaters, sliced up some oranges from the backyard tree we will dearly miss, and had a beautiful breakfast feast.
Now, though, I have to face the Arctic Beast again and continue my ice-chilled crusade. Unfortunately, there is no more bacon in sight! You think frozen peas will get the same rousing reception???
