Okay, readers...

My loving mother bought a new fridge after her old one gave up the ghost at age 15ish. Her new fridge is fantastic and I'm quite jealous. It's one drawback is that it's smaller, capacity-wise, than her old one.

But out of adversity comes presents for me! I went home with a bag of frozen foods and a bag of fresh goodies.

Now, here's the challenge: what can we make?

Here are the ingredients:

  • Fresh kale
  • Swiss cheese
  • Provolone
  • Fresh pasta sheets (frozen)
  • Puff pastry shells
  • Puff pastry sheets
  • Parsnips
  • Frozen edemame
  • Frozen bell pepper strips
  • A whole zucchini
  • A whole eggplant
  • Walnuts
  • Limes

Dear readers, what might you make? I'm not envisioning one meal containing everything, but Darling Husband and I are brainstorming possibilities. Post your ideas! If we make them, I'll post pictures. :o)


  1. Now that is a challenge!
    (By the way, just to keep the record straight, the old frig was about 25 years old. What would people think if we got rid of a refrigerator that was only 15 years old? Personally, I think it could have been fixed.)

  2. Consider the record straightened. I would think you spendthrift for sure for getting rid of a mere 15 year old appliance. I actually had been judging you harshly in my head, but now I feel more kindly. :o) The amazing thing is that fridge looked remarkably modern... sleek black facade and water/ice in the door and everything. Not as modern as the current one, with the digital temp read-out on the door, but certainly more so than my white, freezer on top, run of the mill fridge.
