I've been doing that a lot lately.
My ex-wife, God love her, was both a good and prolific cook, and she left me a ton of food when she moved out. For the most part, it was the usual sort of leftovers: lasagna, mac and cheese, chili or soup, etc. Since my idea of cooking generally involve countertop or under-the-cabinet devices that beep, I was (and am) very grateful.
However, once in a while, I would find something that I simply couldn't recognize in it's frost-covered state, and I would have to thaw it out to discover it's identity. I was usually pleasantly surprised (found some long-lost casseroles that lasted me for days), but sometimes I just couldn't fathom what something was or why I would ever want to eat it.
Tonight is one of those nights. I found a plastic bag, inside of which was a freezer bag, inside of THAT is some UFO, Unidentified Frozen Object. It's some sort of creamy white looking stuff. It might be mashed potatoes, it could be some long-forgotten bread dough, or it may even be the filling for a lasagna. I just don't know. I guess I'll let it thaw out in the fridge and check it out tomorrow night.
The suspense is killing me.
EDIT 10/07/2008 21:56: Well, the bag has thawed, the contents are now clearly visible, and the mystery food has been identified as....
...chicken and rice.
Now that I see it for what it really is, I remember my ex-wife making up a big pot of it about two years ago, and putting it into about a half-dozen gallon-size freezer bags. I thought I had finished it off a long time ago, but I think that this may finally be the last of it.
As I recall, it tastes alright. Not exactly gourmet cuisine, and probably not the better for age, but when you're a bachelor who can't figure out why he needs four burners on the stove when one is enough to boil water, then you'll gladly take some well-aged leftovers.
