it's a messy kitchen

Confession: I have the freezer of a hoarder

Every time I go home to visit my parents, I end up bringing back more food than I really know what to do with.

And not that I’m complaining (obviously, I mean, who would turn down homemade soup and pizza?) – but it’s proving to be an embarrassing situation in my freezer.

As you can see in the photo, it looks like I’m saving up for the Apocalypse – and half of what’s in there isn’t even visible. The freezer situation is partly a result of my hoarding instincts (ie. the frozen veggies, halves of banana bread), but the rest of it is from my mom, aunt, nana, etc… basically, all my relatives who want to keep me happy and well-fed. And for that, I am a happy camper.

But for the sake of this blog (and because I find it amusing), a list of what’s currently hiding out in my freezer:

– Trader Joe’s Blarney Scone, because I can’t resist them around St. Patty’s day
– 1/3 loaf of homemade banana bread
– Block of fudge from Christmas
– Broccoli florets
– Peppers and onions
– Frozen cubes of chicken broth
– 1/2 quiche
– Chocolate chip peanut butter cookies
– Little Debbie snacks (yes – from Valentine’s Day AND Easter), brownies and cakes
– Chocolate chip coffee cake
– Corn
– Lentil soup
– Chicken soup
– Sticks of butter
– Homemade veggie pizza
– 1 loaf of wheat bread
– Cooked bacon
– 1/4 bottle of citrus vodka
– Shortbread butter cookies
– Two bananas

It’s some miracle I’m not 500 lbs. But then again, maybe that’s why everything’s been stuck in the freezer…
