Cooking.

Dinner is Freezer Surprise.

This particular version of Freezer Surprise is quite easy to prepare.

Buy a lump of lamb or beef, place in freezer without a label, and allow to sit.

Really, you can allow it to sit for as long as you like - the main source of failure with this recipe is removal of ingredient from the freezer too soon.

Remove from the freezer when you have long forgotten what it is or where you bought it. For the expert touch, do so while feeling anxious about your spendthrift ways and therefore will feel compelled to consume every last scrap regardless of palatability.

Ideally by now the meat will have acquired a significant amount of freezer burn. Freezer burn changes colour, texture and sometimes even taste, thus ensuring that there's a continuing element of mystery as to the nature of the meat, with the added bonus that this inspires liberal application of garlic and olive oil in order to ensure palatability.

Place in moderate to hot oven and burn to a crisp.

Ha, ha! And here I got excited thinking you were going to replicate my gran's Chillblain Beef. Which I assure you is delicious and you start with a frozen piece of meat. However, that's the only resemblance :-)

I don't think Masterchef will be ringing any time soon (which with George's table manners would be a blessing).

I always pair that with frozen vegetables left so long they're enclosed in a great ball of frost...

Haha I have a veg version everyday in work. Sometimes I have a favourite colour but can't see in the containers to choose it anyway. It is a very sad lunch when I discover the disgusting green leftovers soup!

I told my mother about freezer surprise, I'm afraid. I do love this recipe and it *is* familiar.
