Well, did you hear the news? She’s back! My good Freezer Cooking buddy is back in the saddle and ready to ride this weekend as we cook up a veritable storm. So fun! Are you ready to join us?

I have been terrible about keeping an inventory of what’s in our freezer. At one point it got so full that it was really hard to see to the bottom of it. But, now I see it somewhere down there. And I’m amazed at all the uncooked meat, chicken, and fish I’ve got. I stockpiled quite well awhile ago, so aside from ground beef and some boneless, skinless chicken, I don’t have to buy anything more for this freezer cooking round.

Eat It Up Week

So, this week is eat up what’s in the freezer week at the Fisher Homestead in order to make room for some new stock.

      @Emily, it’s basically all the same things in my Poblano Chile Enchiladas, plus chicken. Yummy!

      @Emily, My mom always made this growing up. It’s been a huge hit in my household now too. We layer corn tortillas, shredded chicken, cheese, green chile sauce (green enchilada sauce), diced green chiles, and whole pinto beans and sliced olives. The pintos stretch the meal and my household loves black olives on anything Mexican!

  2. hmmm… You just reminded me to take inventory of freezer.

  3. This entire menu is making me hungry – especially the chocolate butterhorns! You have a great week planned!

  4. I love the idea of cleaning out the fridge or freezer. So much money just sitting right there waiting to be eaten! Kind of like shopping in your own closet!
