Eating Out Of The Freezer

In a couple of days, we head off on our big major RV trip and Bev decided we had too much to do besides cooking.  As a result, she went to the freezer and pulled out some stuffed peppers and cabbage rolls for us to eat for three nights or until we run out – we’re both okay with eating the same thing for several meals in a row – I can always put an egg on it for breakfast :-).

She added the cabbage rolls and peppers to a pot with a sauce of 1 quart of our home canned tomatoes, a can of tomato sauce, 4 cloves of pressed garlic, and black pepper – our tomatoes and the sauce have plenty of salt.  The first time we didn’t cook the peppers long enough so this time we went 1½ hours at 350*.

Here’s my bowl with a pepper and 2 cabbage rolls topped with some sauce and grated romano cheese - after I cut the pepper open, I added some more sauce.

For the initial meal, neither the peppers nor the rice inside were done enough, but this time both were just right and I thought they were outstanding as were the cabbage rolls.  This sauce, while simple, was very good.  I could tell no difference between fresh and frozen and the next time we have lots of sweet peppers, many more will be stuffed and frozen for an easy meal - if you grow peppers, have extras, and like them stuffed, I encourge you to try this.

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by Almost Heaven South.

Two years ago:  Follow-up Odds And Ends



  1. Eating out of the freezer is one of the challenges of going on a trip. Your freezer sounds full of goodies and better than anyone else's I know.

    Enjoy your trip and safe travels. Hope you're taking your camera along. We don't want to miss anything Larry.

  2. Hope you two have a safe and enjoyable trip in your RV...I'll be thinking about you...

    Going to the freezer for meals is nice sometimes... Those stuffed peppers and cabbage rolls sound fabulous...


  3. We'll be on the edge of our seats waiting to hear about the "big" RV trip. As much as I like cooking new things, we go through phases where we've got to eat out of the freezer. I call if freezer week.

  4. I seriously cannot tell you how good that sounds.

  5. Stuffed Bell Pepper tomato soup, I love it. I always make extra stuffed bell peppers because the leftovers are always so good.

  6. My mother was a huge fan of stuffed peppers and served them often, but I'm allergic. It caused a lot of nights when I wouldn't eat. Funny, I'd have thought you could remember that your one kid couldn't eat something, but that must be too much for any person. But Bev's right; eat the leftovers so you've got less to do while preparing for the trip.

  7. When I was a kid I used to hate cleaning out the fridge meals, but as I've gotten older, I realize the importance of them and so enjoy them now!

  8. I couldn't agree with you more! "Put an egg on top and call it breakfast" is one of my favorite meals. ;)
