  • Freezer Contents

    December 22nd, 2019
    food, house
    This afternoon I defrosted our chest freezer, which I probably should have done about two years ago. Aside from having spent a long time dealing with frost buildup, another downside of waiting so long turned out to be that by the time I learned that the drain didn't work it was already out of warranty.

    We mostly use the chest freezer for three things:

    • Buying things when they happen to be on sale.
    • Having enough space that we can make large ~quarterly shops when we have access to a car.
    • Storing leftovers and other cooked-ahead food.
    The main tricky part is not losing track of things in it, since the closer it gets to full the harder it is to find anything.

    While I was reorganizing and refilling it I took inventory. This is what was in it:

    • Dairy (60lb):
      • 3.4gal ice cream
      • 19lb butter
      • 6lb cheddar
      • 2.5lb shredded mozzarella
      • 8oz cream cheese
    • Raw meat (48lb):
      • 15lb stew beef
      • 11lb ground beef
      • 8lb bacon

      • 1pt chicken for soup
    • Ready to defrost and eat (26lb):

      • 1.8lb frozen pizza
      • 1lb cooked mussels
      • 1lb shredded ham
      • 9oz par-baked bread
      • 9oz hotdog buns
      • 2 salmon patties
    • Vegan stuff (19lb):
      • 5.3lb tofu
      • 3.5lb vegan cheddar shreds
      • 3pt vegan ice cream
      • 2.6lb vegan sausage
      • 2lb earth balance sticks
      • 18oz vegan ice cream sandwiches
      • 1lb tempe
      • 9oz vegan breakfast sausage
    • Fruit and veg (16lb):
      • 8lb chopped onions
      • 3lb mango
      • 2.5lb raspberries
      • 2lb peas
      • 12oz spinach
    • Frozen leftovers (13lb):
      • 2pt vegan pasta sauce
      • 2pt beef stew
      • 2pt vegan beans
      • 2lb beef and onions
      • 2lb BBQ pork
      • 1pt vegan peanut ginger soup
      • 1lb vegan cardamon saffron sauce
      • 1pt unlabeled sauce
    • Other (12lb):
      • 5.4lb puff pastry
      • 1qt bacon grease
      • 2lb shortening
      • one pie crust
      • 1pt red cooking wine
      • 8oz almonds
      • 1C stew mushrooms
      • 4oz dried basil

    This is for a house with six adults (three omnivores, two vegans, one vegetarian), and two kids (one of which is kind of vegetarian).
