What do you have in your freezer that you can whip up on such short notice?

Instead of babyback ribs, which I usually cook on the summer holidays, I've decided to pull some chicken from the freezer and do some fried chicken this time.

It's marinating now.

I'll probably have ribs on the fourth of July.

In my freezer? um - vanilla ice cream, lime sherbert, wasabi masago......it will be a run to the grocery store for me. I'm one of those people that cannot function out of my freezer. I wish I could but it has never worked out so I quit stocking it a long time ago.

But, now that you mention it I may run and see if there's something in there I forgot about!

Edited to say I just checked - peas and hotdog buns Grocery store for me!

My 13 year old son and I are grilling for our family tomorrow, eating out in the patio and swinging in the hammock.

Speaking of ice cream, I threw away some stale vanilla ice cream that was in the freezer for what seemed like eons!

I went to the SM myself. When I got home, I found out that I forgot to pick up some buttermilk to marinate the chicken in. No store around here has it at all!! So I had to improvise and use the powered stuff with some water and sour cream to thicken it slightly.

Then I also forgot the relish for the potato salad, so it was back to the store again! It's a pain in the butt when something keeps being forgotten!!

Found a 13 lb fresh turkey at the local grocery. Yesterday we cut it in half, I froze the innards, backbone, and 1/2 of it. The other half will go on the grill today for friends. Looking forward to it!

Forum must have been running too slow.

Yeah, first time that I heard of anyone cooking turkey parts on the grill. Guess there's a first time for everything!

Boy was it ever running slow. I was only on the computer for a few minutes, and a couple of times I think I did that. Sorry.

I brined some chicken leg quarters then put them on the grill and slathered them with BBQ sauce at the end. We had roasted asparagus, fresh tomatoes and cottage cheese. I wanted some more of the corn on the cob I'd found at the store a few days back but others must of realized how good it was because there wasn't any to be found yesterday so we settled on cottage cheese.
