In Proclamation #5157, President Ronald Reagan said: "Now, Therefore, I, Ronald Reagan, President of the United States of America, do hereby proclaim March 6, 1984, as Frozen Food Day, and I call upon the American people to observe such day with appropriate ceremonies and activities."
Thank you Mr. Reagan.
Now, I'm left to think how, I, John Q. Citizen should observe this day. Its coming up on 2:00pm here on the east coast and I haven't done a single frozen-food related ceremony or activity yet. I feel like I've broken my fast early on Yom Kippur. Bad frozen-food boy.
A quick check of the freezer reveals the presence of
2 packages of Cooked Squash
1 package of Birdseye Classic Mixed Vegetables
1/2 package Jones Farms "Little Sausages"
1 Lean Cuisine Deluxe Cheddar Potato dish
1/2 tub each of Haagen Daz Cookies and Cream and Coffee Ice Cream
4 boxes of assorted Twinings Teas (they just keep better in the freezer)
1/2 bag of frozen shrimp
4 partial bags of frozen french fries (I always forget we have them when I'm at the store)
2 Omaha Beef sirloin steaks (thanks GF's mom.)
1 small freezer burned steak of the mystery cut variety.
1/2 bag of buffalo wings
2 Cornish game hens
1 tub of pine nuts
1 tub of chicken schmaltz ( I always forget its there and its such a good ingredient)
1/2 package of shredded coconut
5 bags of wild rice (don't ask)
Folks, this is what I've got to work with. I'm now open to suggestions for any frozen-food related activities and/or ceremonies I can observe to commemorate this important day. You may also tell me how you intend to mark the day.
Please note, for those of you in Alaska, Moose walking through you yard do not count as Mobile Pre-Frozen Food, so kindly leave them out of your planning.
