When I got home from my Kroger trip yesterday I realized my freezer was in sore need of some attention, so instead of working on a Friday Fluff Up project (which I'd way rather do. . . ), I decided it was time to clean out the freezer and get some idea of what exactly I had! As it turns out, my daughter's preschool needs Chicken Nuggets next week and I had no idea that we had any, but sure enough, there was a whole big bag of Tyson Chicken Nuggets buried on the bottom of my freezer drawer!
Here's what it looked like when I started (this keeping it real thing is for the birds . . .)
And here it is in the middle of the disaster . . . (yuck!)
Finally, here we are all tidied up! If you happen to see me at the grocery store purchasing any kind of garlic bread, please. stop. me. I know the stuff is terrible for you, but I have an eleven year old boy who thinks there's nothing better in the whole wide world than Texas Toast, so when I find a deal I just keep on buying more. However, I feel horrible letting my family have it more than once or twice a month, so it just fills up my freezer! I know I have just a few more sweet years (maybe months, EEK?!) of being the coolest mom ever, so I am completely buying his love these days. (However I am using my coupons to help out . . .) 🙂
Believe it or not, we only have a regular side by side refrigerator/freezer, and while I'd love a large freezer we just don't have room for it (and I figure if we've made it this long without one, we'll surely survive without it!) But, it does need to stay organized, and I was amazed at all the meals that I had lurking in the back of my freezer!
