Mine is mainly full of meat (I like meat), fruit (for smoothies and dessert recipes when fruit is out of season), and nut flours (and flax and coconut and amaranth and arrow root and…). And yes, incidentally; that is a red light you think you see, bestowing its glow upon the contents inside. We call our freezer the “Red Light District”. It was more fun than a standard, red freezer bulb
I typically keep my frozen fruits and vegetables (read: cauliflower) in the door shelves (along with some burritos for my teens). Top shelf: All of my different flours, nuts and the ground turkey breast that was marked down (Come to me, ground turkey breast potential!). Next shelf: All of the cherries from our trees this year (there were literally gallons of them). I have a couple of bags of nuts I keep frozen in there, too (it lengthens the shelf life of the nut). Third shelf: My grass-fed beef. As soon as I use up the cherries for desserts for neighbors and friends, I will buy more grass-fed beef. Bottom of the freezer when a drawer could be, but we don’t mess with that: Regular flour and a cold compress. No correlation between injuries and flour. You might wonder why I am keeping flour? It’s for recipe testing. If I want to compare finished products, I’ll make two items side by side. Oh! I have frozen cheesecake slices in there, too… Ooh. Cheesecake slices!
Now on to how I’ve been doing with our Mid-Year Challenge… Be sure to do your thing. I am thrilled share my progress and thoughts, but I’m not the person you should necessarily look to for dieting advice (I’m not a paid nosh-a-titian). Be sure to subscribe for updates by adding your email right (in the sidebar) or through Feedburner in the title bar up top. You can also click the tab up top that says Mid-Year Resolution for regular updates.
I ate this:
Breakfast: A piece of fudge (a new recipe coming soon)
Lunch: A&W Coney chili, cheese, and onion dog, sans bun + a piece of fudge (it’s good fudge)
Dinner: a tomato slice (I caught s virus from the hubs, so I’m trying not to eat)
Exercise: I worked at the treadmill desk for about 30 minutes.
Notes: I caught my hubby’s virus, so I am trying to be super careful about what I’m eating. I’m definitely keeping it light.
What I am thankful for:
All throughout TOPS this week, we are supposed to write about something we’re thankful for.
I am so thankful for the enthusiastic, ridiculously fab family I have. Whether we’re just sitting around, telling jokes, arguing over board game rules, or complaining about politics, we always have so much fun. Last night I took my daughters for a quick trip to Hobby Lobby (I had an old, unspent gift card), and I ended up buying my daughter My Little Pony Stickers. It was so much fun! And I am addicted to looking at baking supplies.
Colt and I like to watch Jeopardy, and Drew and I like to speak French to each other in really bad accents (but we do try. He loves his French class).
And my sweet baboo. What can I say about him? He is just the most terrific person I’ve ever met. Even when he snores (which is fine because I move him over so he doesn’t drown out Ice Road Truckers).
What are you thankful for today?
