Freezing And Freezers
I really don't know were the time goes,
yesterday I made a batch of waffles for us to have over the week end
and the usual week end loaf of bread
Then it was strip the bed, hoover through, get all the house stuff up to date, the remainder of the day I spent down in the cabin working on some new ideas for up and coming craft fairs, while Martin popped out for animal feed, he spent the rest of the day splitting logs and re-filling the log shed.
This morning I decided to pull out the contents of freezer 2 (mainly meat) re-do the inventory and get the meat from freezer 3 into the freezer 2, clearing out a freezer in readiness for a pig we are slaughtering in a couple of weeks.
There is 4 pages listing the contents of the freezer
I have lists on all the freezers, what is canned. pickled, preserved and dehydrated, they all live in this folder that lives in the kitchen
when something is used its crossed off, this way I can see what we have and with vegetables it helps me decide what I need to grow, no point in growing loads of chilies again when I have plenty in storage, the space can be given over to growing something we are running low on.
While going through the freezers I pulled out a load of salmon
I am going to get this canned later today, it will then be ready to use for sandwiches or fishcakes, fish doesn't keep long in the freezer before it spoils.
Its bowing a gale outside and cold with it, yesterday we had on off snow flurries. It ha been a cold week, and many a morning I have to clear thick ice of the animals drinking troughs, the ice still hasn't defrosted just sitting there were I left it.
