I Won the Lottery!

Just kidding. Not really. I've never even played the lottery. But I feel like I've just won some sort of lottery or prize. ... Except I paid for it...

It's a brand new freezer!
Fully stocked with meats, fish, prepared meals, and veggies!
Mmmmmmm!
We signed a contract with Country Pride Food Services. And, ya know, we paid for all this food and the freezer, but they delivered it and stocked it and sorted it and will refill it with whatever we want (and pay for) whenever we want!

I've been living with one tiny little above-the-fridge freezer for way too long. I can never stock up on bread or cheese or (ahem) cookie dough. I could never do the "make two meals instead of one and freeze the extra" thing. But now I can! Wa-whoo!

Every time I tell somebody about this they say something like, "Oh, now you can freeze ..." And insert their favorite thing to have on hand in the freezer. I'm most excited about bread. We always have to make a mid-week extra trip to the store for bread. What about you? What are you so happy to freeze (or would be if you had a big freezer)?

OOO!! That is awesome! I am right there with you about the bread. We seem to go through 2 loaves a week, and there's only 3 of us! Plus no real room in our freezer! We were playing with the idea of getting a small one to keep in our shed so we could do just what you said - make two meals and freeze one! How exciting!! (love the part about the cookie dough...there is ALWAYS room for cookies...)

B-E-A-U-T-Y!!!

Lasagnas, soups, cookies, spaghetti sauce w/ meatballs AND very riped chocolate-coated bananas!!! With five kids anything ready to cook/warm up is a big hit around here!

PS: Oh! We love frozen Kit-Kat bars: eat it straight or make crumbs out of it to top any ice-cream concoctions - give it a try!

Honestly? Ice cream. And pizzas. And stuff that I keep passing over for a year until I have to throw it away from freezer burn. But the ice-cream never goes bad for some reason... or the pizzas... Huh, that's weird.

We just bought a big Chest type and then accidentally also bought 160lbs of beef to go in it. We have been having some sweet pot roasts. After only a few mo the dang thing is FULL.

When you were little, we always had our freezer full of fish that Mike Wood and I caught, filleted, and froze within a short time of pulling them out of Puget Sound. We miss that freezer. Sometimes it had venison in it, but usually just fish and casaroles.

Cool! I can't wait to get me one of those! I love to make freezer jam with my garden strawberries. Yummy!
