October 15, 2012


This week we cleaned out, defrosted and inventoried both of the freezers.  Man, what a job. These things take on a life of their own.  After each inventory we do a “freezer book” and swear  we will keep it up to date.  That lasts about three weeks.

The day of Warner’s big party I asked him to get the Capanata out of the freezer.  After much heaving and hoing he produced a small Ziploc bag of the stuff that was over a year old….No, said I.  I did a batch enough for 30 several weeks ago. He claimed I never made the stuff and on it went.  After much ado, the last item we pulled out of the freezer (this is a big chest freezer) was the Capanata.  So much for inventory control…
