Well I think I am almost done my Christmas shopping and it’s not the 23rd..Lol Last night’s shopping trip with my father went well. We shopped for almost 3 hours and then went for a lovely supper. I think that may have been the longest we have ever spent shopping. However, we had to drive around to 7 different stores at 7 different locations in the city so that took up a lot of time too.
A while back I had done a post on all the canning I had completed this year and had planned on posting about all the produce I froze this year, however I forgot until now. As I went downstairs this morning to pick a protein out of the freezer for lunch I commented as I always do...wow this sucker sure is full. If you don’t believe me here is a picture.
All that food and there are only two of us..Lol And here’s the kicker...I have another freezer out in the garage that is just as full...lol No pictures of that one since i am lazy and don't want to walk outside to take the picture..lol
Part of the reason that it is so full is that we shop at Costco and therefore buy a lot of meat in bulk; however, the other reason is that I simply froze a lot of veggies from the garden this year. If you want to see pictures on the individual veggies check out the canning label to the right most of them should be there.
In 2011 I froze
17 cups of purple carrots
32 cups of orange carrots
12 cups + 10lbs of purple beans
28cups of green beans
9lbs of tomatoes
48oz of spinach
8 cups + 1.5 lbs of broccoli
16.5 cups + 3 lbs of cauliflower
21 cups of onions
16 cups of zucchini
24 cups of kohlrabi
8 cups of cabbage soup
10 cups of Saskatoon berries
4 lbs of sausage
It was a pretty darn good year for freezing produce for me this year. Now I just have to remember to eat it all!
