Forget about the food . . I can live on Blue Bell ice cream for the next few weeks.
There’s actually a 4th half gallon of ice cream hidden out on the first shelf and there’s another half gallon in the fridge/freezer downstairs.
We ordered half a beef last week and it will be about a month before it gets here. I somehow have to get this freezer cleaned out and defrosted before I leave for Paducah. Didn’t help that we bought 25 pounds of Italian sausage while in Arma, KS last week. The wheat in the bottom drawer . . I can take that out, let it come to room temp and pour it into a bucket I was saving for my next bag of flour. There’s still a LOT of ground meat (in the red/white plastic bags on the bottom shelf – 1-1/2 pounds per bag). Anyone want to share some good ground beef recipes? I like meatloaf, hamburgers and though I don’t like them, I make a good many meatballs. I think I’ll take out a bag and make taco soup.
Once the wheat is out, the ice cream has been consumed, the already cooked food in the containers is used, I hope I can make room for the half of beef we have coming. Somewhere in my head, I hear a voice saying .. just buy a second freezer but I will not give into that voice because I would fill it up and be facing the same stuffed to the gills freezer next time I need to order beef.
Ok . . shall it be Rocky Road or Cherry Cordial?? I’m off to work on consuming the ice cream! 🙂
