What can you cook with just frozen food?

I have a lot of staple foods in my freezer and we like to fill it, then allow it to run down to nothing so not to be storing foods for to long, after its run down again we go to a major freezer store and fill up again.

With the beautiful weather we have been having and a weekend at home with nothing planned (shock horror) we spent the day just having fun in the garden, with bubbles, pool and a BBQ.

What did I have in my freezer? Burgers? yes a box of 4, sausages? always have bags a bag of them at least, Corn on the Cob? yes the kids love them, Chicken? another firm favourite.

I also found some lamb ribs that I had frozen. I also had some frozen fruit, Ice cream and ice-cream roll….oops no ice-cream roll, a quick shop to get some bread and salad, I popped in my basket 2 ice cream rolls to make an Ice cream Bowl cake, so easy and quick.
