My husband and I have to announce a new member of our household … a 5 cu.ft. chest freezer that has taken occupancy in our work room. I cannot TELL you how excited I am about this freezer, especially considering that our freezer upstairs is the size of a shoebox and I like to do things like make my own stock for soups and stuff like that.
A big challenge that I see in my future is to be wise about what I buy – this isn’t an excuse to start buying random things on sale just because they are on sale and because I have a chest freezer that has a ton of food storage possibilities. Another thing that I’m going to need to be smart about too is wrapping foods so they don’t get freezer burn – I’ve had to chuck some cuts of meat because they have fallen victim to the burn.
If anyone has any suggestions – I’m all ears!
(Editor’s note – big thanks to my in-laws for coming up this weekend with their Honda Element to help us haul our new “baby” home. :-))
