While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.

If you can stop your teeth from chattering for long enough, March 6 is National Frozen Food Day!

Hear, hear to celebrating the convenience of having it any way you want it, just the way you need it, any time you want it.

As long as we have been trying to maintain the freshness of fresh game and produce, savvy fishermen, farmers and trappers have been using cool (and downright cold) places to store their bounty. In 1912, Clarence Birdseye went on a fur-trapping expedition to Labrador and witness the native people there freezing their catch to preserve it. By 1929, the iconic Birdseye was selling quick-frozen foods to the general public.

But don't forget, frozen food isn't all microwaveable TV dinners and bricks bags of vegetables. We're thinking you can indulge in ice cream and other desserts of the frosty variety today as well.

Trying to clean out the freezer? Put that frozen corn to good use in a Monterey Jack, corn and roasted red pepper risotto. That should shake the chill right out of your bones.
