Advice of a CrazyCook

For many years, I've avoided the freezer section at the grocery.Yesterday, before the current "ad" expired, I trekked off to the grocery, armed first with my list of needs, and of course, items that I will need at some point, that were just too good a
deal to overlook right now. Unfortunately, I also had a fist full of coupons for frozen foods that were also on sale. Of itself, that might not be a "bad" thing, but I think I went overboard, and have totally given in to these delectable frozen tidbits!
My purchases were motivated by the fact that I've spent the entire week spring cleaning, and working myself into a near coma each day, at which point, I'm just too tired to spend much time in the crazykitchen except for the dinner meal... that is, if there
are no "warm ups" to do. I bought a number of items thinking lunches, and late night snack/3rd meal munchies.
2 eight packs of burritos
2 chicken pot pies
3 pkgs of spring rolls
and a partridge in a pear tree (?) LOL
I've already consumed one pkg of spring rolls - delicious, btw - garlic chicken... one pot pie, a beef chimichanga, and two of the sixteen burro's. At the rate I'm going, I might just be out of these foods by next trip in 7-10 days... I seriously doubt that
I'll be done cleaning by then, and will still be wanting "quck fix" foods for lunch, and late night eats. I guess that I also should research websites from which to print coupons, as I'm just about done with all of my frozen food coupons!
CrazyCook's warning... STAY OUT OF THE FREEZER AREA of your grocery, as it can be "hazardous to your health" due to all of the chemicals, and preservatives... all that stuff you can't pronounce that's on the ingredient list! While I've never actually been
a "health" person, since I began cooking so much, I have chosen to avoid prepared foods, making my own instead. (What I wouldn't have given for a "box" of mac & cheese a few days ago!) Keep in mind though, that there are a few exceptions... like Ice Cream,
On another topic, I hope that by Sunday I can have the sauerkraut canned... unless it's spoiled for some reason. It certainly is aromatic at this point, and will have been fermenting for 7 weeks, so it really should be just about as "done" as it's going to
get. A taste test should answer numerous questions I'm experiencing, and I'll proceed from there... hoping that the trash can doesn't benefit from my efforts. I've also been meaning to take a few photos of some of my "growing" stuff, from marigold seeds,
through geraniums, and into potatoes that sprouted before I ate them. I've also got a few scallions growing from seed, but history tells me that they could peter out at any time now, regardless how good they look today!
Till I post photos, be happy, be healthy, be crazy...
