One of Mama Kat’s writing prompts this week is – something new that you are loving. I splurged on a couple of things over the holiday season but the most practical one was my new chest freezer. It’s not a big one; I am in an apartment after all but it’s perfect for me.
I have been in this apartment for nine years now with only an apartment sized fridge/freezer. This is a challenge when there are three of you to feed and you would really like to take advantage of sales. I don’t know how many times I must have stood there in the grocery store looking a little spaced out in front of the chicken/pork/beef/etc. on sale, trying to remember how much freezer space I had left and if I could buy that extra package of chicken/pork/beef/etc.
Now, though, I have the freedom to buy as much as the budget will allow. Bring on those chicken legs! Extra pork chops? Yeah man! Frozen juice concentrate on sale? Woo !
I actually have room in my regular freezer for ice cube trays now. Gasp!
