Bon Appetite....Freezer style

Every so often....probably about once a month,
we have what we jokingly call our
FREEZER BREAKFAST.
I am very big on FREEZING....if we have one biscuit left, it goes in the freezer...
...one piece of cake...2 cookies...
whatever.
When I make a meat loaf or a casserole, I TRY to make TWO..
One for NOW...
One for LATER...
THEN, we can have FREEZER MEALS  
This morning, MR. SWEET got the three STUFFED BISCUITS,
full of butter, cheese and, hmmm...I think these have BACON.

These are one of his very favorite things for breakfast so he was very happy
this morning to have them ...without any hassle...no waiting for them to bake.
Microwave those babies and they are ready to satisfy a hungry man's appetite.
...digging a little deeper in the freezer, I found MY bag of tiny
CRANBERRY SCONES...♪♫♪
OMGosh....I do love Cranberry Scones..
I will take SCONES of any kind over CRUMPETS.
I am thinking of making BUTTERMILK WAFFLES today, cooking them,
bagging and freezing...Ummmmm
HONEY HAM, sliced for sandwiches, so they are a tad thin to grill...
but, we did it anyway....and it was delicious. Just gotta be careful and barely warm them
or else they will be so dry you can't eat it.

See that yummy FLUFF in the bowl...? The light yellow that is LUSCIOUS..?
MY LEMON CURD..yes, ma'am...LEMON CURD is unbelievably good
on CRANBERRY SCONES.
Good GRIEF, it's good.
If you are hungry for CRANBERRY SCONES, you can try the RECIPE that I used making these.
I prefer the small scones and I just cooked these in muffin tins.
Scones are one of those things that, if you use a basic recipe, you go wild on what you want
to add......lemon zest...nuts...dried fruits of all kinds..
just go with it.

Since discovering LEMON CURD a few months back, I don't aim to EVER be without it again..it is delicious on every single thing I've tried it with...even on a spoon, right out of the bowl.

I buy it at the market, in a jar. Maybe....
MAYBE I might try making it sometime.
Usually when I find something already made for me....and it is slap-your-pappy good, I don't mess with it. ♥♥

AHA! I always wondered how just you and Mr. Sweet could eat all those luscious things you blog about EVERY. DAY.
Now I'm on to your secret, you don't eat it all! You are brilliant BJ. Lol, now if I can just find the willpower to put some of the goodies in the freezer....

Kim @ Savvy Southern Style said...

That looks slap your pappy good!

Barbara F. said...

I think I would slap anybody's pappy over a breakfast like this! I love lemon curd, and buy it in the jar, too! xo

Happier Than a Pig in Mud said...

Looks like a yummy day BJ and I still haven't tried lemon curd-gotta get on that:@)

Kelly said...

I love lemon curd too. I once used it in a recipe for coconut cake. It was a Paula Deen recipe. That's such a good idea to make extras and just freeze them like that. That must be a lifesaver when you're not sure what to cook.

Balisha said...

I use lemon curd in a dessert made with a meringue. I fill the meringue with the curd.. then top it with real whipped cream. Melt in your mouth good.
Love the idea of those scones. Such a good idea to make them smaller.

NanaDiana said...

Love that idea about the freezer breakfasts! And I LOVE lemon curd but don't think I have ever had store bought! xo Diana

Yvonne @ StoneGable said...

BJ~ can I come over for breakfast? I just love your freezer idea. Maybe Bobby and I would love that too!
I am a big fan of scones and lemon curd. Make your own... you will go wild!
xo Yvonne

Linda Chapman said...

Your posts make my mouth water! I love scones! Ginger, pumpkin, maple, cranberry.....ANY scone! I used to make the Ginger ones fairly often and it calls for candied ginger. Ummmmm GOOD!!

We freeze things, too. This morning LD had a fried egg/cheese/bacon sandwich with a side of hash browns......straight form freezer to microwave. I toasted two slices of fresh bread and he was a very happy man!

Sarah said...

Oh, BJ, look at your darling new header. Love it!
We freeze things too. When I make biscuits, we'll eat a few, then freeze the rest and have them for breakfast when we want. Do the same with pancakes, waffles, and of course other meals. ;-)

Everything you cook looks so special becuase of the way you display it.
I'll have try that lemon curd.

Bunny Jean said...

Dear John..er, BJ...

I am so sorry but I have to stop visiting you.

Just about every time I stop by for a chat you are trying to make me fat, okay... fatter!

Have you NO MERCY for some sweet little innocent who is trying her very level best to stop eating those evil CARBS?!

Your once faithful follower,

Bunny Jean

Vee said...

You have an excellent plan. I made lemon curd once and was the only person in the house who loved it. It wasn't difficult as I recall. I think you'd make a really nice batch.

I like my scones baked in the skillet and served up in wedges. I agree...a good scone is far preferable to a crumpet, though butter on a crumpet is lovely, though one could do just as well with an English muffin if it comes to that.

How's the dust?

Ivy and Elephants said...

What a yummy looking breakfast! And all from the freezer you say? I didn't know so many things would freeze so well!? I'm giving it a try.
Thanks,
Patti

Stacey said...

You are a smart woman! I've never thought to freeze biscuits. Great idea to stuff them and freeze them. Yummy. We are really consciencious about freezing veggies and fruit because they can always be used in something else. I'll look at food with a new eye now.

By the way, I just finished a cup of coffee and some homemade pecan pie. Mmmm. :)

Stacey said...

Oh and the other day we took ham out of the freezer and slow cooked it in a pot of beans. Heaven!!

Marydon said...

Oh, how yummy! I made potato pancakes for lunch with hash browns ... yummy! You got me going now, BJ!

Have a wonderful weekend.
TTFN ~
Hugs,
Marydon

Sweet Tea said...

I NEED me some of that Lemon Curd. The name sounds awful but it LOOKS creamy, yummy, GOOD!

Pondside said...

My favorite Tea Room here in Victoria serves Lemon Curd with their scones - the yummiest!

Debbie said...

You know, I used to be great about freezing my leftovers, even in small portions like you said, and then pulling things out for freezer meals. Ever since the girls went off to school, I haven't really done it.

I need to get back to freezing. You have inspired me.

Zondra Art said...

Everything in your pictures looks delicious! I suddenly feel hungry:)
Have a great weekend!

Your freezer breakfasts look yummy! I kind of do that with dinner leftovers...never thought about breakfast!

"Auntie" said...

Freezer Breakfasts! Cute idea.

But tell me, how do you keep track of things in your freezer? Here, we have a bad habit of forgetting stuff, till it's way too old. Etc.

Please! Share your secret! Of keeping track, of what's wrapped up, in one's freezer!!! :-)

Gentle hugs,

The corn is turning brown
The trees in apple orchards
With fruit are bending down."

Beverly said...

You've go me licking my lips. I love lemon curd, too.

I hope to see you later for Pink Saturday.♥

PEA said...

I love making enough to freeze and have at a later date! Just this morning I took out a breakfast burrito from the bunch I froze last month and it was sooo good to just "nuke" it in the microwave and eat:-)

I had never heard of lemon curd until I saw a recipe asking for it. I went to every grocery store around and no one carries it here! I guess I'll have to cross the border one day and get some on your side! lol xoxo

Kathleen said...

That is such a good way not to waste food! A potpourri of goodness!
Have a great weekend, BJ!

Rita said...

Would love to have breakfast at your place; I often do this also; make 2 meals and freeze one; so handy.
