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???

    Bacon doesn’t last long in my fridge – everything tastes better with bacon – everything. Good luck with the move!

  2. Good luck on the freezer clean out. I know what it’s like just finished eating my out a week ago. And filled it back up in one day.

  3. Good Golly Miss Molly,
    We love the same food! OMG!

    Love this – I do a simplified version – mixing all ingredients with a little milk (I must try the sour cream next time) and putting a lid on the pan. Cooked on the stove at very low temp, it puffs up into a fluffy egg-bake. Sprinkle cheese on at the end. Its great to experiment and add a variety of leftovers from the fridge.

    • TY, JP! I guess I should have mentioned that throwing in any leftovers like chicken, tri-tip, steak, sausage, etc. works really well when added about half way through the cooking process. Also, chopping up some leftover Enchiladas and mixing them is quite good, too. Eggs are so versatile … one of those ingredients that would be so hard to cook without!
