The Defrosting Game...15 containers to unveil themselves

jpmcd | Jan 28, 2009 09:17 AM

I hate to throw away food and almost always save a serving (or two) of leftovers from dinner, or some extra of a side or soup, extra meat, etc.

So, now I find myself with a freezer full of containers filled with mystery something or other (I was not that organized to label everything, maybe something I will start doing).

Today, I am going to start defrosting a few at a time and hoping to find something edible, maybe even a delicious, tasty memory of a dish from the past - but this experiment might go awry, with bad surprises instead of good - freezer burn, food that is just too old, etc.

I am assuming others have this same problem - would love to hear defrosting stories of the good and the bad!!

Want to stay up to date with this post?
