Sweet Endings



This is my sweet ending to the weekend!
In my quest to clear out all the food from the large
freezer so I can defrost it this spring, I've been creating
meals from little surprises in there that are making
getting dinner on the table easy and fun!

We were hungry for something sweet after dinner and I
did a little rummaging through the Arctic
 air and found this pound cake.  Fortunately,
 I had whipped cream and Torani Caramel Sauce
to make it something extra special.

In my freezer adventures, I haven't come across any
UFO's yet.  (unidentified frozen objects)  But I haven't 
made it to the back of the shelves just yet! ha. 

Yum.

    1. Very tasty! Perfect with a cup of tea. We need to drink some smoothies, though...lots of berries in there!

  2. You know I have to start doing that too. I have frozen berries and I always forget that I could be smoothie-izing them! I tend to use them in yoghurt or ice cream, or as "ice" cubes in drinks. But I never have smoothies. And they cost sooooo much at the juice bars.

  3. UFOs ~ so funny ~ when I was in hospital Selina and Sue went through my freezer and kicked out some sausages with an eat by date of 2008, some pork chops with an eat by date of 2012 and some more decided dicey JARO ~ just about recognisable objects . . . . lol

    Regarding your cake it looks like the answer to someone''s prayer for a meal to die for . . . . sinfully delicious . . . :) ,

  4. I bet when you get to the back of the freezer you will find some mammoth steaks; I mean real hairy Mammoths from the Ice Age that crept in there to keep warm! Ha!

    D'ya know last winter it was so cold in my kitchen I used to leave the freezer door open to warm the kitchen up, That cake looks really good, you are so creative.

      but the freezer is higher!

    1. I might bake a few big berry crisps and send them off to work with the mister and to an auction. That would help a lot!

      Delete
  10. I see that your rummaging skills aren't limited to auction treasures and clothing but to food as well. :) That caramel sauce looks extra good!

    1. That sauce is a very good brand! And the chocolate one tastes just like my homemade!

      The freezer is pretty frosty! haha...Harry figured out how to unlock it and left it open a couple of times..just enough for frost to form nice and thick. I think he was looking for where I hid the potato chips. :)

    1. It's an ancient thing...it's about the size of a small refrigerator...sits in the back pantry. I expect it to die sometime when it's full of food. ha.

  13. Look delicious!
    I always have berries at freezer because I use around the year!

  14. I don't have a freezer anymore but my side by side fridge freezer side is crammed full and I have been working on it. No surprises yet either but I am sure there might be some. You sure can make something beautiful out of your freezer...not me.

    1. I'm always saying I wish my freezer was frost free, but one good thing is that the defrosting forces me to clean it out at least every other year!
