We have three freezers. Two refrigerator/freezers and one upright deep-freeze. As you can imagine, every once in a while something gets shoved to the back and forgotten about.
Plus, the deep-freezer is not a frost-free model. This means that at LEAST once a year it needs to be emptied and shoved out on the porch to melt down – otherwise we end up with layers of crusty frozen ice and no shelf space. And let’s face it – if I get a bigger deep freezer, I COULD get rid of the second fridge. Maybe.
The kitchen freezer is full of Mom’s stuff. It is mostly un-marked, un-dated and generally questionable. The secondary freezer is full of kid-food. None of it is destined for the trash can. The back freezer is combination of both.
The answer, then, is to toss all of Mom’s un-marked and un-dated stuff and move my stuff into the kitchen freezer, right?
It’s a sin to waste food. She’ll know I threw her stuff out. Trash day was yesterday and I don’t relish the scent of food decaying in the heat for a week. Even if the cans ARE at the street.
Someone come hold my hand. Please??!!??
