Freezer Challenge | Smoothie time?

The wind chill is currently 19°, but I still see a smoothie in my future.  Possibly chased by some hot tea!

Freezer goodies for this week

Left to right, top row: watermelon, two bags of buns, a bag of miscellaneous frozen fruit

Bottom row: Andouille sausage, shredded coconut, mystery rolls

Ideas for the freezer goodies

The watermelon could be used in this smoothie, especially because I have some pineapple in the fridge that needs to be used.

I’m making pulled pork today, so we’ll use the buns for that.

The random fruit could go into another smoothie.

I could make some jambalaya with the Andouille sausage.

I need to make no-stir granola today anyway, so I could use some of the coconut in that.

And I think the mystery rolls will probably become croutons.

Also I have a jar of what I think is butternut squash soup.

I’ll find out at lunch today!

And I still have corn tortillas. But I’m going to make migas, on your suggestion, readers! And tortilla chips probably.

My freezer is starting to be unrecognizably empty, which is feeling like a major triumph to me.  Yay for a very very very long freezer challenge. 😉

How about the Mexican meatball soup in the latest Cooks Country? It takes a bunch of corn tortillas. It is on my meal plan this weekend.

I saw that! One of my kids picked up the magazine and was like, "Oh Mom, that soup looks gross, please don't ever make it." lol And that was before I even said anything about it.

So now I have to decide if I still want to give it a shot.

Maybe let me know what you think after you make it, and then I'll decide!

Toasted coconut cookies are our favorite way to use shredded coconut.

Ok, I MUST get back on the wagon! My fridge freezer was getting empty (er) but then Thanksgiving happened, and I had a houseful of people I was preparing for. Today is a new day!

Coconut macaroons for Christmas? We also use coconut in apricot balls, an old Christmas tradition in my family (chopped dried apricots, ground nuts, coconut and sweetened condensed milk) , but they are also quite sweet. I have an AIP recipe (from Bethany Darwin online) for Carrot Halwa that uses coconut and is mighty tasty but is not an actual dessert and is not full of sugar. Coconut shrimp? Coconut cake? And what did the mystery soup turn out to be?

Some of the coconut could go in this:

It is one of my favourite chocolaty cake recipes, not too sweet, but delicious.
