That's right folks, Freezer Friday is back! I've been on hiatus from this discipline the last couple months as I've been working on using up the stockpiled meals and produce that is in the freezer. I've done pretty well. Now, the garden is producing and summer menus are right around the corner!
First up - we have our first harvest of the season from our garden: Rhubarb. You have to understand that HandyMan is the pie baker in the family and the rhubarb plant has kind of become his baby in the garden. So, he started harvesting last night and we have two vacuumed packs (my new baby in the kitchen!) of measured out rhubarb waiting for pie.
Additionally, in order to prepare the freezer for the harvest to come and get ready for spring grilling, I am joining up with the Freezer Cooking Day going on this weekend over at MoneySavingMom.com. I have plans to bulk buy and marinade meat for the grill, make hamburger patties and do some baking with some of the zucchini, squash and carrots that are still hanging out in the freezer.
We're still 6-8 weeks out from our summer crops so we don't need to use up everything in the freezer, but weeding it out will definitely be beneficial.
