Defrost in the frost


I have a strange sense of timing. An arctic cold snap sweeps through town and we're shivering in the snow, so I'm reminded that I really need to defrost my upright freezer. My garage felt like it was barely above freezing, and sticking my hands into the cold freezer full of old veggies was excruciating. But the plus side is that I was able to put the stuff I wanted to keep into a cooler and put it outside on the back porch and it stays frozen.

Confession: there were bags of garden veggies in the back of the freezer labeled "Summer 2008". I have a laundry basket full of these old freezer burned vegetables to throw into the compost. I'm going to save, wash, and reuse all the ziplock bags.

What better way to spend a snow day? Well, the kids had other ideas ...

  1. I need to work on our freezer, too--a project that I'm not looking forward to.

    I love the tea party pictures!
