Freezer Stuff

I'm getting ready for the new refrigerator to join my kitchen this Saturday. And in the process, I'm cleaning out the freezer of my old refrigerator. I'm looking through containers and reading the tape on top of obscure packages to see what might be cooked into dinner each night. Sometimes, I can't believe what I've saved. I mean, how many meals can a tablespoon or two of tomato sauce create? Why did I save that?

There are meals in there that were leftover and saved for future use, but when I think about whether my family and I liked that original meal, I have to admit that sometimes, we didn't. I mean, that's why there's so much of it in there, right? So...why freeze it to serve again? Hmm.

There are one or two frozen waffles, a few pieces of chicken fillet, a couple of hamburger patties--not enough for an entire meal, but maybe someone would want it for lunch? Yeah. Right. In my household, neither of the guys ever look in the freezer to make lunch. It has to be right in front of their faces before they eat anything that I don't prepare and hand them. Alrighty then, let's pitch those things. Or wait! How about mish-mash night? A little of this, a little of that for dinner...that'll work. A few more packages cleaned out. Check.

This may not be a good week for company to come for dinner. I'm just saying...
