Let It Go As A Frozen Chef


Let go of the pile of dishes.

Let go of the hours of food prep.

Let go of the boring recipes and the same old bar food junk.

Let go of the idea that you’ll miss tip-off because the snacks aren’t ready yet.

Let go of the madness normally associated with serving your party people awesome, original food during the tourney.

Let it all go and whip up some new creations this year using ingredients from the frozen food aisle. That’s right. Frozen. Food. Oh, and win $800 doing it…WAY more than enough dough to cover all of your tourney bracket entry fees.

Life of Dad and The National Frozen & Refrigerated Foods Association have joined forces for the epic #FrozenChefMadness promotion (running now though Noon EST on 3/17/2014) that will net one lucky winner a cool $800 Visa Gift Card, and three other winners some hefty spending cash too, all for strolling the frozen food aisles of your local grocery store, picking out a few choice selections from this product list, sharing their original snack/meal creation on social media using the #FrozenChefMadness hashtag, and joining up with the great Life of Dad Network. Not bad, right? All of the contest rules and prizes are here, so brush up on the specifics and get cooking…’cause the games are about to tip off and you don’t want to miss a second of the madness.

Listen, I get any apprehension you might have about frozen foods: Sodium levels, yikes! Diverse ethnic selection, ummm…maybe? Fresh is better, right? Will everyone think I’m a lazy dad if I use frozen foods? I had many of the same concerns, PLUS I’m a stubborn, anti-convenience, from-scratch at-home chef, but since being asked by the fine fellas at Life of Dad to participate in the #FrozenChefMadness contest, I’ve discovered frozen food options that aren’t merely vehicles for salt delivery into my getting-healthy self AND there are tons of ethnic choices AND there are times when using some frozen foods makes total sense…like when you are rushing to prepare something delicious for your hungry friends waiting in front of your 60″ HDTV or when you are trying to bang out a healthy home cooked meal in-between your daughter’s Girl Scout meeting and the scheduled tip off time of your favorite college basketball team’s opening round tournament game.

I’m already a lover of stashing multiple bags of fresh-frozen veggies in my freezer, so I don’t have to deal with limp broccoli florets and pathetic carrots 48 hours after bringing them home from the produce aisle, but now I’ve discovered a few more frozen goodies that I can rely on in a pinch, to Let Go of some of those issues mentioned at the top of this post.
