What's in your freezer?

I'm feeling very industrious this morning having finished my latest freezer inventory.

Now I know what's in my freezer.

What's in your freezer?

A lot less than there was last week. I decided that I needed to either cook the 15 pound Butterball in my deep freeze or start planning it's birthday party, so yesterday I made roast turkey with all the trimmings!

All I have left in there now is some ground beef, a dozen hamburgers, some boneless skinless chicken breasts, two 5 pound chickens I got for 99¢ a pound, a couple dozen hot dogs, a half dozen stuffed potatoes, one package of steakhouse potatoes, 3 loaves of Oroweat bread, a package each of hot dog and hamburger buns, a pack of artisan tortillas, a 10oz bag of spinach, 1 pound of shredded mozzerella, and two blue ice packets. Oh, and my first ex-wife.

The freezer part of my refrigerator has a couple or three top sirloins, 6 pork chops, 6 burgers, 8 hot dogs, 3 veal cutlets, a 2 pound bag of corn, a 2 pound bag of green beans, a 1 pound bag of crinkle cut carrots, a 1 pound bag of julienned bell peppers, a couple of containers of spaghetti sauce with a meat ball and an Italian sausage link in each, sliced cheddar cheese, sliced Swiss cheese, vanilla ice cream, strawberry ice cream, chocolate ice cream, and some black bananas for banana bread or banana pancakes. Some of the turkey and sides I made yesterday will be going into one or both of the freezers in a couple of days, too.

I think that about covers it.

This gave me the push to clean out and inventory my freezer. I have a side by side that I HATE but let hubby talk me in to. Not user friendly.
So in my freezer right now is:
1 chuck roast for pot roast
1 boneless pork loin
1 package pork chops, bone in
3 packages of boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 packages of boneless skinless chicken thighs
1 package of turkey legs
1 package ground beef
2 packages smoked sausage
2 packages Jummy Dean bulk sausage
4 freezer bags of red, green and yellow peppers
Brown sugar
1 tray of beef stock
2 trays of ice cubes
15 bags of veggies
4 freezer paks for lunch boxes.
1box each of aunt jemima waffles and pancakes
Phew... Now I have a clean and tidy freezer!

Lots and lots and lots and lots and...............

Probably close to 100 ears of corn-on-the cob, 30 or so packages of frozen green beans, same of corn-off-the-cob, tons of packages each of zucchini and yellow squash, bags of whole tomatoes, whole and cut-up okra, about half dozen containers of homemade baked beans, same quantity of home-smoked pulled pork, plus an assortment of small pork and beef roasts, several Cornish hens, a whole chicken, plenty of fish fillets, a few packages of salmon steaks and tuna steaks, a half dozen pork chops, chicken leg quarters, ground beef (raw and cooked), Italian sausage, bacon, link and patty pork sausage, and several other commercially-made frozen veggies.

The one in the refrigerator has assorted frozen juices, shredded coconut, chocolate chips, salted and unsalted butter, various fruit rinds (lemon, orange, etc.), dry yeast, ice packs (for coolers and boo-boos), and packages of almonds, pecans, macadamias, walnuts.

There is probably more, but I think I've inventoried most of what is frozen.

What's in my freezer(s)?
Less this week than the week before. Some of it identifiable, some of it not.
Next week there will be even less. I'm on a mission!
Give us this day our daily bacon.

I'm not about to inventory my freezer when it's almost as cold as the freezer outdoors. We have a small chest freezer and freezers on two fridges. We label everything that isn't really obvious (e.g., bread in clear plastic) and can usually remember what we have.

2 bone in turkey breasts (great deal at Target @thanksgiving)
20 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast
5 lbs bacon
5 lbs ground beef
chuck roast
2- 1/2 pork loins
a big 10 gallon jug of water (put in before a hurricane threat to help pack deep freeze full, to stay colder longer)

In the fridge freezer
homemade sauce
bags of frozen veg
homemade peach pie
blackberry cobbler

I keep my deep freeze organized with those reusable cloth grocery bags. I have a bag for beef, one for chicken, and one for pork. If I get a good deal, then I will add a second bag for one type of meat. This way I can lift out the bag to get what I need and there isn't anything that gets lost in the bottom of the freezer.

I also repackage the meat I buy in the serving size that I need and vacuum seal. These packs thaw quickly in a sink of cool water.
