Freezer Food Fest #7
Posted by Caveman Cooking on January 7, 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!
After spending the afternoon in Rancho Cucamonga with the Caveboy and Cavemom cashing in my Holiday gift from my mother, a Bass Pro Shops shopping spree, there wasn’t much time to cook when we got home. Plus, my son and I were still pretty full from our lunch at the Yard House.
By the way, if you haven’t stopped by one of the Yard House locations around the country, you might want to try it. Besides hundreds of on-tap beer selections, available in yard and half yard glasses of course, there is a wide ranging food menu filled with some very delectable choices. While I opted for a very tasty Shrimp & Vegetable Rice Bowl for my main course, we decided to start things out by splitting a Hawaiian Tuna Poke Stack – marinated fresh ahi stacked with crispy wontons, carrots, bean sprouts, avocado and wasabi soy sauce. Unfortunately, my phone camera doesn’t really do this dish justice. But, suffice it to say, I will definitely order this appetizer again … SOON! 😉
Eventually, though, we all started jonesing for some din-din. After a quick search and rescue mission into the icy hold I came up with a few Poppa Mike’s Gnarly Burgers that had previously been tossed into frigid the chamber for a later date. That date was today!
I just threw them, frozen solid, onto a hot grill. About 12 minutes later we were munching some tasty burgers adorned with some left over bacon from Freezer Food Fest #6, some incredibly creamy avocado fresh from my in-laws tree, and some store bought lettuce, tomato, and onion. And, it was gooooood!
I’m starting to feel like this frozen food quest is starting to make a dent in the load of frigid edibles we have amassed. I can actually see to the back of the freezer in some spots! Perhaps I will indeed accomplish this challenge … we’ll see. 😉
