31 Days: Day 21 - The freezer continued

They say the road to hell is paved with good intentions. I think the same can be said of the freezer. 

The second part of my freezer clean-out involves the upper drawer. If the bottom part is hell, then the upper drawer is purgatory. It's shallow, so I can see everything that's in there so I'm pretty good about rotating it, but still, you never know. In fact, I found a ziploc bag of leftover chicken thighs that were unappetizingly monochromatic. Not sure when they first entered. In fact, it took a second for me to figure out what I was even looking at.

Here's a rundown of the poor, wasted-away souls I found.

Sorry it's so small. Click to see.

Here's the finished product. I threw so much stuff out, that I could fit everything in purgatory the top drawer. I'll probably start keeping things I use more often like bread, lunch meat and frozen juice in there. Before, I had to keep those kinds of things in the big freezer in the laundry room. And believe me, that's a job for another day.Sometimes my depression era ideas get put in the purgatory drawer because they have a slim chance of actually being used, but I don't know anyone who actually froze and then later reheated and served leftover pancakes. Oh, well, it's the thought that counts, right?
