Talking What's in your freezer??

I know, I know......

I'm only bringing it up because most of us just don't know. Steve was bored the other day and he did an inventory of our little 6 cubic foot freezer we keep in the guest room. Now I have the list taped to the inside of a kitchen cupboard and I can check things off as they are used. Sometimes it pays to be married to a retired husband with OCD.

But of course. The U and L means upper and lower shelf.

I have an undetermined quantity of automatically generated ice cubes and a bunch of really cold food.

That heretofore shall remain nameless.

I'm afraid to look. If I rearranged anything in the chest freezer, I would need the headboard piece that I set on top to keep the lid closed. And don't even start me on the bottom drawer freezer. DH is forbidden from accessing either of them, he just swears a blue streak and leaves them open.

We have three freezers - it would be harder to inventory those than it would our refrigerator! One in the bottom of the new fridge, one in the top of the old fridge, and a small standalone one we bought before we renovated the kitchen. I *wish* DH would inventory them for me!

Three cashmere sweaters and all my lambswool. I've had an infestation of moths and freezing kills the eggs and larvae.

Kayelle, you just HAD to start this thread! My parents' freezers were always an archeological dig...I'm afraid mine aren't much better.

Freezer at the farm: empty at the moment (we only use it when we are at the farm and processing stuff)
Large freezer in basement...Conrad's taking up a lot of the space, but there are several liter bags of corn, strawberries, perogies, homemade sausage, pesto, stock, and beans, beans, beans, beans.

2 fridge freezers...the tenant/roommate/chicken sitter has a frozen pizza, a bottle of vodka (purchased in July and still unopened), a liter of vanilla ice cream and 1/2 lb of bacon on her shelf.

On the top shelf of that fridge freezer, I have 2 pheasant legs, a lamb chop, 3 l of broccoli, 1-12 oz bag of chocolate chips, the shells from 1.5 lb crab legs, the shells from 4 lb of shrimp, the shells of 2 lobster tails, more mussel shells than one can shake a stick at (all you an eat night). 3 frozen 1/2 lemons, 3 l of frozen beans, 2 1-lb packages of ground beef, 4 lb of bacon. I am not going to tell you what I have in the door....

In the freezer on the porch, I have approx. 20 lb of "trimmings" from Conrad in 4 lb bags (for sausage), 4 lb of pork cut into cubes for sausage, more bags of corn than I cared to count, 1.5 lb of lemon grass, 1 qt of fish stock, some walnuts, pecans, almonds, fennugreek seeds, black beans, chick peas, methi. And little dribs and drap of other things. Somewhere, I have a leg of lamb...suspect it is buried in the big freezer...probably settled at the bottom next to that turkey I keep meaning to thaw.

I don't alphabetize--I use a whiteboard marker and write directly on the freezer with hatch marks to indicate how many. As I use items, I adjust the inventory. The writing comes off with a white board eraser. I don't need to have a list in the kitchen, 'tis just I who picks and chooses what comes out of the freezer (except the tenant's pizza and bottle of vodka).
