Why am I so excited about this? Because it is going to be a huge help this year while homeschooling to be able to pull a pre-made meal (one that is full of good stuff, not preservatives) and pop it in the oven on extra-busy days. I love my crockpot (almost as much as this lady) but there are some meals that just don't do as well in the crockpot. Plus, there is still a bit of prep work required to use that noble appliance.
If you have read my recent posts, you know that I have had an influx of assorted fruit lately. Most of this has gone into the freezer in one form or another. It had gotten to the point where I was the only person who could get items out of it, thereby preventing an unsightly avalanche.
When I finally unloaded it, even I couldn't believe how much was inside.
But back to my new freezer. While I would have preferred a huge chest freezer, where to put it would have been a problem. We don't have a garage, so it most likely would have been kept in our backyard shed.
But not to worry. My new freezer is 4.5 feet tall, just perfect to fit inside my kitchen. While it means there is less storage space in it, it also means it's conveniently handy. Overall, I am quite pleased.
Now my biggest problem is deciding which of the frozen meals I want to make first;) I'm planning on making a huge batch of meatballs today, as well as some burritos.
From there on out, the possibilities are endless:)
