Every few months it is necessary to freezer cook and clear out the fridge. This week is that week. With Spring Break less than a week away, I plan to work my way from the top shelf down. In addition, I have a dozen hamburger buns left from Sunday’s porktastic birthday dinner.
Last night’s meal was Meatloaf Burgers. A pound of ground turkey barely feeds our growing family of 5. To make it stretch, I added a handful of bottom of the bag crushed wheat saltines, garlic powder, and grill seasoning. While grilling, I mixed up the last few drops of ketchup and brown sugar for the true meatloaf experience. Meatloaf burgers got two thumbs up from Little Chef. With a side of corn and applesauce to round out the nostalgic dinner, I have a little less to clean out at the week’s end.
With 5 tilapia fillets and a 1/2 package of shake-n-bake to use up, tonight’s dinner paid homage to a Fillet-o-Fish. After a quick pressing into the seasoning, I sautéed the fillets in a pan sprayed with non-stick spray. We topped off the fillets with homemade tartar sauce and accompanied the sandwiches with green beans. Again another successful freezer meal. The little entertainer ate more than a quarter of the steamed green beans! Little Chef promptly gobbled up his fish sandwich before touching anything else.
Hmm, what is on tomorrow’s menu?
