yet another freezer post...

Moving into a new place, it's quite a process to accumulate a good, well-balanced set of freezer contents. It's tempting to start throwing all kinds of things into the freezer. But really, there's only so much space. Since Lintil and I moved in about 6 weeks ago, I've been carefully establishing the ideal freezer contents (Lintil doesn't seem to be into freezing stuff, so we didn't need to establish freezer far)

Here are the contents of our freezer:

washed and chopped cilantro
washed and chopped green onions
about 20 wiri wiri peppers

1 package of frozen chopped spinach
half a bag of frozen peas
half a bag of frozen corn

1 unopened package of 4 veggie burgers
6 veggie weiners (of an 8 pack)
1 frozen pizza with sauce

half of a baked butternut squash
3/4 of a baked acorn squash
3 pieces of veggie lasagna (wrapped in aluminum foil)
3 bags of bread, about 4 slices left in each (ok, i did just throw these in...)

half a can of crushed tomatoes (in tupperware)
2 half cans of 2 different cream of mushroom soups
half a can of coconut milk

3 cans of frozen orange juice
2 ice cube trays

1/4 package of stewed 'mutton' (lintil's)

actually, there was a problem with the electrical outlets in our apartment for the past 4 days, and i was worried that everything would melt (and it nearly did)...

but we couldn't cook! thank goodness for frozen food and peanut butter!!

yeah, gotta say, this is impressive. so do you think it's safe to refridgerate/freeze opened cans? does metallic stuff leach in or something? i just know that stuff gets mouldier faster when sitting in an opened can than in a jar. but maybe because you can't close it properly, i don't know.

it's all transfered to tupperware. no way!! i would never freeze cans! especially open cans. i hesitate to leave stuff in cans for a few minutes. (my mom always taught us that anything left in a can for too long could lead to food poisoning. of course, she may have just made that up...)

I think sharmalade should go to the halloween party as her fridge and pin everything in it to herself

nice variety! although, if i may, i think that the lasagna will keeep better if wrapped in saran wrap. foil doesn't keep a tight enough air seal, which can allow other freezer smells to 'taint' your future meal or freezer burn...
