Karma Butt Kicking - The Extended Version

So those lovely crab fries from Thursday helped karma out by giving me a merciless headache/migraine ALL F-ING WEEKEND. I know better than to eat that stuff (some preservatives, like the kind in Old Bay type seasonings can trigger migraines for me) in excessive amounts. I also was very aware that I was getting dizzy spells a precursor to allergies that kick into migraines later. So much for living in the moment. Sheesh!

I am much better after drinking tons of water and eating much better stuff all weekend but I didn't get too much done. My plan had been to cook all weekend stuff I could freeze for a taste of summer in winter. We have the most awesome corn around here this year (you can eat it raw it's so juicy and sweet) and the tomatoes are to die for and the peaches are incredible too. I've never done the freezing in excess thing and I am hoping that I have enough freezer room to actually do it. Do you cooks have any good tried and true freeze now and enjoy later recipes you can share with me?

Mmm peaches...

I'm not entirely sure J's hiatus from blogging has anything to do with the lawsuit. He told me'd just kinda lost his zest for it and wanted a break. The suit was filed this past Friday, and J's last post was a week ago, which was also the last time I talked to him. If he knew the suit was coming, he didn't say anything to me about it. But I could be wrong. It's not like he tells me everything...

At least you checked out how much room you have in your freezer first! I usually cook it all and then panic!

Migraines suck - so sorry it hit you this weekend. I can see how Old Bay type seasoning can bring that on. Hope you feel better today.

My grandmother-in-law and I were just saying this evening that corn, peaches, and tomatoes are at their peak right now. We had a plate full of sliced 'maters at supper tonight...HEAVEN!

Sadly, I've never mastered that cook/freeze/eat later thing. If I cook now, I eat now. Sorry I'm no help!

Hmmmm - freeze now recipes. My wife did some meatballs and her own sauce, and froze that ... it tasted good about a month later ... I'm sure that doesn't help.

The only thing I know how to freeze for later is strawberries. But I would imagine the principle is the same for peaches. Which would be to slice them. And then set them out to dry. When it's dry, put them in a single layer on a cookie sheet and stick it in the freezer. After they are frozen, you can bag them.

They are not going to be good for just eating plain. But we use ours in smoothies.

No tried and true tips here but I know what you mean about the corn and the peaches! I've eaten so many they're doing a number on my digestive system but oh the mouth watering goodness is SO worth it!
