oh yeah, the reason i went there were for the eggs, .77 a dozen for large. eggs seem to be really high right now, i like to buy the jumbo size and cant find them for less than $1.69. i ended up getting 6 dozen of the large to tide me over.

For most of my life I've had a small chest freezer and really often had no idea what was in the bottom of it. Since moving here I put off buying a new one, and while it does get a little crowded, the freezer on top of my fridge seems to be enough for us. I don't entertain on quite the scale I used to, and no longer live near my (large, extended) family, so really don't need as much as I used to. The fridge is not near a water source, so I need many trays of ice cubes. I've a few "diet" pizzas for quick lunches, several bags of frozen vegetables. A couple of steaks, a few pork chops and one pork tenderloin. Some frozen chicken wings. Several servings of stock, soups, stews, chili that I make from time to time. Some pesto, harissa, thai-style curry. It is amazing what I can fit in that little freezer.

This is my situation exactly. Sometimes I think I must have a psychological disorder that makes me keep the freezers so full I can't tell heads or tails what is there. I know there are lots of different meats, even deer sausage which our sil keeps saying he will take and give us more room...lots of veggies, fruits, desserts, you name it. I'd show a picture, but I'm ashamed for anyone to see it.

My pantry is almost as bad. I need counseling!

beef shell steaks
pork spare ribs
3 pork loin roasts I cut down from a whole pork loin
AP flour
rye flour
whole wheat flour
soy flour
hand of ginger
walnuts mixed veggies
baby peas
bottom round roast
eye round roast

all meats were on sale from between .99 to 4.49.

I am sure there are a few other odds and ends in there.

Besides food preservation the small freezer I have does double duty as a cat feeder. Another reason to not know what's in there.

12 lbs ground beef
6 kgs chicken breasts
3 (10lb+) chickens
2 packages pork steak
several bags of chopped rhubarb
3-4 bags of carcasses for soup
3 lbs butter
2 standing rib roasts
lord knows how many freezies
3 4L pails ice cream (vanilla, chocolate and neopolitan)
1 2L Breyers triple chocolate
bag of king crab legs
bag of shrimp

upstairs freezer

2 bags of perogies
assorted bags of frozen veggies
1 bag frozen raspberries
1 bag frozen blueberries
1/2 bag of mixed berries
