For various and sundry reasons (not the least of which is that they're pretty full), we'd like to do some more eating out of the freezers (large one with the fridge upstairs, chest freezer downstairs) for the next couple of months, which means knowing what's in them. This gives me a chance to pin the inventory somewhere, and I know I'm not the only person who enjoys this kind of nosy list, so...

meat: leftovers: veggies/fruit: other:
1 package of chicken drumsticks enchiladas of questionable goodness half a container of frozen strawberries half a container of granola
1 package of country ham, slices lots of chickpea patties most of a bag of peas 3 pita breads
1 package of country ham, large dice several tupperware containers of goulash and beef stew, though it's hard to tell what's what, with a bonus container of Albondigas soup lots of bananas 2 vegetarian sausages
2 packages of pork chops 2 containers of (I think) French onion soup half a bag of cranberriesa half a loaf of homemade bread
1 italian sausage, freezer burnt? 2 tupperware containers of muffins, homemade half a bag of mixed vegetables much Marketspice tea
2 package of pork ribs roast of questionable vintage
2 bags of cheese bread from Harris Teeter
1 package of industrially farmed pork steaks

4 frozen blueberry waffles
small package (½ pound) cube steaks

1 container, lime juice concentrate
.615 pound ribeye

.5 pound New York Strip

part of a bag of shrimp

1 pound scallops

small amount of uncooked stew beef

It is amazing what a little bit of masking tape and a permanent marker will do to help know what everything is and when it was cook. :)

Yea, the tape is... somewhere. I made the mistake of using wet-erase markers, though. :)

What do you do with the frozen bananas?

Banana bread! :) And smoothies, for the ones that weren't too far gone when they went into the freezer.

I saw 1/2 lb NY strip and part of a bag of shrimp juxtaposed, and all I could think is "mmmm, beef and shrimp fajitas..." (It's close to dinner time here. lol! )

Having a full freezer is actually a good thing. It retains cold temperatures better when the power goes out.

In such an event, with minimal opening, you can stretch out how long those items last during an extended outage as you quickly pull an item out to use and close on a minimal basis.


As an alternative, fill empty soda 2L bottles up 80% or and use them to fill up empty freezer space for more emergency cooling capacity after they freeze. Even better as they warm up, potable water!
