I’ve been strangely silent recently because we are preparing to move. If you haven’t moved 7 people twice in 14 months, you’re not walking on the wild side.
Anyway, in preparation for moving, I am trying to clean out the freezers. Yes, we have two. The goal is to use something each day from the freezer. Today, I used a pie crust, orange juice and what I thought was key lime juice for a key lime pie. Turns out the key lime juice was egg whites, so I made a rather bland custard pie. I’m going to have to start labeling frozen food. I also ate an English muffin and a sausage patty for breakfast. And I’m working diligently on drinking all our coffee samples. It’s a sacrifice I’m willing to make.
There is a lot more food in those freezers. Some of it unrecognizable. Some of it looking strangely similar, ala the egg white/key lime juice twins. I’m putting freezer tape and Sharpies on my Wal-Mart shopping list right now.
This is a real life, down and dirty, practical simplifying exercise. How about you? What do you need to clean out of your freezer? Join me in eating up the excess. It’s a lesson in good stewardship and creative cuisine.
