Freezer Inventory – Main Kitchen

Its downright chilly here this morning. 54 degrees at 8am … I’ve got windows open (not all the way!) and the house is cool so I figured now was the time to tackle this project!

The funny thing … as I’m pulling stuff out (one shelf at a time) I see instant dinners in the making so I started to write things down, like for instance, the top shelf has the breaded chicken and 2 bags of mashed taters, so I grouped those together and wrote down on the side of my list, mashed taters & fried chicken, and then roast beef au jus sandwiches (RB lunchmeat & half loaf of Italian bread) and Hot browns (cooked turkey breast (good lord, I’m not sure when I froze these, but they are large chunks off a roasted turkey) and so on… so this WAS good to do that will definately help with the SRS this month!

I did throw a few things out, a couple bags of bananas that were brown, a bag with 3 lonely freezer burned strawberries. Apparently the kids have been tapping into the freezer for food as there were things opened (raspberries) and used with just a few things left in the bag … the tortellini was ripped open (my pet peeve) … but most of all, imagine my surprise that there were no blueberries? This is the freezer where they would be.

Here’s what I started with at about 9:10am:

And after (about 10:15am):

So there you have it. One down, one to go. I feel a little better about doing this now … I realize that the best
thing was to go one shelf at a time, i.e. empty the shelf, inventory and put back, and then to the next one. Yeah, it’s not as “organized” as it could be but it’s a heck of a lot better. So I’m off to look at the other 2 and decide which one is next!
