I inventoried my deep freeze the other day and this is what I found. Got any meal ideas for me?

  1. Ok, going to try to remember off the top of my head what you said as I type. This is what I thought of:

    Bread – using it for French toast or eggs in a nest: cut out the centers of each piece of bread with a narrow drinking glass. Crack an egg into the center of the bread and fry it and flip it to the other side and fry it too. My kids love them. Oh, don’t forget to butter the bread before frying it. Butter the circles too and fry them alongside the nests. My kids love the circles as much as the nests.

    Chicken – chicken noodle soup. Seems like you had chicken broth listed too….

    Hot dogs (and was there corn???) – Beanie Weinie casserole. My kids like it. A pack of hot dogs cut up, a can or two of pork and beans, and a can or two of corn mixed together and baked. Definitely NOT gourmet (lol!) but easy, quick, and well…..just easy. :)

    Vegetable soup and stew

    Banana bread

    Fruit – smoothies and pies, maybe make the crusts with the flour.

    Tortillas – quesadillas or enchiladas. Also, we love to cut tortillas up with a knife or pizza cutter and lay them (one layer only) on a cookie sheet and bake them in the oven just long enough to turn them into chips…..couple of minutes. Yummy!

    Wonton wrappers – Our fave thing to do with them is make a filling of cream cheese, a bit of grated carrot and finely chopped onion and crab or those teeny tiny shrimp (or even no meat) and put them in the wrappers. Seal them up by wetting the edges and pinching them together and deep fat fry them. Totally naughty but so good.

    Ice cream – You are more than welcome to bring it to my home. :)

  2. Thanks for the ideas! I think the ice cream is kind of old, though.
