The contents of my large freezer

I stalled all evening before finally trudging down to the basement to tackle this freezer.

I took EVERYTHING out and put it on the floor. I sorted into piles, threw out obviously freezer burned stuff, and put it all back. The freezer needs to be defrosted, but I'll deal with that later.

Here are the "after" pictures. I was too humiliated to post the "before" ones.

The door:

From top to bottom, left to right:

Shelf 1: broccoli florets (16 oz.)

Shelf 2: chicken stock (2-2 cup containers), pureed winter squash (6-2 cup bags)

Shelf 3: pie crusts (4), puff pastry sheets (2), applesauce (1 qt.), burritos (6)

Shelf 4: pie crust in pan (1), Canadian bacon slices (5 oz.), Immunity Soup (3 cups)

Now the interior:

From top to bottom, left to right:

Gallon baggies of:
Shredded zucchini (1)
Shredded red bell pepper (1)

I did it. I conquered and organized the big freezer. I also discovered we have a lot of cow in there.

I will be making stock as I use up the meat in the freezer. The spaces left vacant will fill with containers of stock. I love stock. It's healthy and tasty. Good stuff.

Next on the agenda is the dry goods pantry area(s).

Tomorrow is another day.
