My brother’s mother-in-law shared with him that she and her husband were doing a version of “The Great Purge”. Seeing as how they are ’empty-nesters’, I thought their viewpoint would be a fresh perspective on the exercies. Thanks Colleen for sharing!
We didn’t start purging for any particular reason…there wasn’t an epiphany or anything like that. I have frozen leftovers for years but usually ended up throwing them away.
So, one day I looked in my freezer and saw all the extra stuff frozen and decided to take a chapter from the book of “Kristin School of Cooking.” Tod told me how she goes through her freezer periodically and purges.
As a result, I am in the process of purging my freezer when I don’t want to go to the grocery store or just simply want to make room in the freezer. My best advise to those who are new to freezing leftovers??…
Label your packages! One might think that since freezer bags are clear, it is easy to identify the food item. Not so…plus it’s good to date the package as well.
Thank you for the idea…also makes me feel better that I’m not wasting food!
