So we’ve all done it. Dug back in the deep recesses of our freezers to pull out something for dinner. And then once thawed only to discover it was not even close to what you thought it was.
My fopaux was pulling out what I thought were chicken wings, only to discover it was a chicken bones I had saved to make a stock. Needless to say we went out for pizza that night.
I am an active member of the Cuisine at Home forums and have had the pleasure of meeting many of the members and forming friendships that will last a lifetime. About every 3 months or so we do a “Mystery Box” dinner. Those who want to participate add an item to the virtual box if they so choose, or you can just sit back and see everything that is added. Then it’s off to your local store to pick up the ingredients. This is such a fun event for us.
This got me thinking back to the chicken bone/wings fiasco. So I came up with a new Mystery Box Challenge – Freezer Diving. We are putting together the ultimate Mystery Box dinner and I would love for each of you to sign up on the FB Page here. Or comment here on this blog. You go to your freezer, grab something you have no clue what it is, thaw it and turn it into something delicious and beautiful.
Up to the challenge?
