I'll be honest when I first pulled this bag of frozen Courgette chunks from the freezer my first thought was 'I'll thaw these out and the chickens can have them'. Then looking at them in the colander I thought that I really should make much better use of them than that ... so they are currently bubbling away with some other vegetables from the polytunnel and the veggie patch and will form the basis of this weeks pot of soup.
I think I felt like that because they just look so unappetising and boring when they are frozen just as they are. They tend to get left at the bottom of the big chest freezer, languishing with all the other bagged vegetables and fruits while the more interesting things get eaten and replaced. I think once I've used up the bags of things that we already have in the freezer I will make more of an effort to turn them into finished dishes before I freeze things this year.
How I stash soup in the freezer usually.
I mean if they had already been turned into soup it wouldn't have taken that much more room to store, and they would no doubt have been eaten on a 'too lazy to cook' day, which are coming thick and fast after a few hours working out on the veggie patch or in the tunnels just recently.
