Frozen + Fresh= Maybe not Fabulous, but good enough
Well, it’s official (or doctor verified) that I am indeed sick. 😦 Sinus infection bordering on bronchitis. Fun, fun, fun. I need to rest as much as possible over the next few days, we’ve got a busy weekend. Resting, not so easy for me, the biggest thing “resting” means for my cooking is that I will be relying on the few pre-made frozen items I have.
On a funny frozen food side note, have you seen any of the Vlog postings from Freezer Burns? Hi-lar-ious!! I really enjoy watching the videos.
When it comes to pre-made frozen items, I usually only buy certain types of items, and certain brands, so I don’t care which one we eat tonight. I let the kids decide.
So, we’re having freezer Mexican. We’re having taquitos. I’ll make fresh guacamole and re-fried black beans to go with it.
Here’s my Mom’s Guacamole dip recipe.
- 5 avocados, sliced
- 1 medium tomato, diced
- 1 TBSP lemon juice
- 1 TBSP picante sauce
- 1 tsp garlic salt (I prefer to use diced garlic and a dash of salt)
- pepper to taste
- 1/2 cup of diced onions
Open and de-seed avocados. Mash with a fork. Add remaining ingredients.
*if you are making this ahead, put the avocado seed into the guacamole and refrigerate it. The seed slows down the browning process.*
I’ll probably do a freezer meal tomorrow also, I’m thinking fish tacos, which means I need to find a good recipe for my slaw. I am always looking for new slaw recipes. I have one with ramen noodles in it. It’s pretty good.
How do you handle sick days? Do you order out? Do you rely on frozen meals?
