    Default Capitol 1 asks "What's in your wallet?" I ask, "What's in your FREEZER?"

    As I was packing my bargain spiral hams into the freezer, I did a rough count. There are actually more than this IN the freezer, but here's a rough idea of

    What's in my freezer? (# of packages, each worth 1 meal or more)

    Beef roasts: 3
    B/s chick breasts: >3
    Chick thighs: 1 or 2
    Corned beef : 1
    Fish: 1 + 3 Gorton’s
    Hamburger: 3 meatballs plus 1-3# patties
    Pork chops: 3
    Pork roasts: 3
    Regular hams: 2
    Salmon: 1
    Spiral hams: 3
    Steaks : 1 set
    Turkey: 1 (18#)

    This is 30 packages of stuff! Since I can make a meal from each package, I could theoretically not buy meat for the next month! And, although some, like the meatballs, are just enough for a meal, some, like the turkey, are enough for a meal plus lots of leftovers!

    And all of it bought on sale!

    Good for you!

    To be perfectly honest, I have no idea how much of what I have in the freezer at the moment. The boys and my hubby have been in charge of getting things out of it and loading it up when needed and they have not been writing things down like I asked. Oh well! I do know that we could live off all the stuff in there for a couple of months at least though.

    - 2 whole chickens
    - 10 pounds shrimp
    - 2.5 pounds tilapia
    - 20 or so family sized portions brown rice
    - 10 pounds butter
    - 50 pounds whole wheat flour (could be more)
    - 50 pounds whole wheat pastry flour (could be more)
    - 5 pounds ground turkey
    - 10 pounds mozzarella cheese
    - 10 pounds cheddar cheese
    - 5 packs cheese singles
    - 5 boxes Morningstar patties
    - 5 bags blueberries
    - 5 family sized portions homemade banana nut waffles

    - 2 family sized portions homemade pecan muffins

    I know there's more, I just can't think of it right now.

    Hmmm...
    5 half gallons of ice cream
    assorted frozen appetizers - DH and I have our quiet dinners once a week after the kids are asleep
    6 steaks
    chicken legs
    hamburger
    whole wheat flour
    frozen fish filets
    ham steaks
    frozen strawberry jam - from the garden
    pork loin


    Actually every so often I go and re-inventory, so I have an idea.
    Then I make a "what could be for dinner list"
