Use up my yeast!

Besides baking absurd amounts of bread, how can I use up 6oz of Fresh Bakers Yeast before it expires on 4/12/2010?

I've used up 4oz of fresh yeast over the past week baking for Easter and going crazy experimenting with bread. Now I've got 6oz of yeast to use up before it expires. It's currently living in my fridge, in a sealed ZipLock bag. (for reference, about 1oz produces 2 loaves of sandwich bread)
I still have 1.5 loaves of bread to eat, and really, I never eat this much bread ever- I've been having sandwiches three times a day at this point, and forcing toast upon anyone who visits me. I've got a huge amount of breadcrumbs and I've got a decent stockpile of croutons. Additionally, while I
likelove baking, I'm in crunch time at work, and don't foresee having the time/energy to bake bread every night when I come home. (although if there's an AWESOME recipe that I need to try, I would make the effort)
Please let me know of any recipes that can use this up!
or alternatively, how long past the expiration date can I store fresh yeast and have it remain usable? The internet appears to disagree upon how freezing affects it.
Anecdotes/hilarious stories most welcome.
