Today I have something a little different to share. A fun mix-up for the middle of winter. During a recent workshop I included a tour of our freezer storage as part of a bigger video that was all about kitchen organization, particularly as it related to freezer cooking. I'm often asked about keeping things organized in the kitchen, so I thought it would be fun to rework a small section from the video, and share it here with you.
There really isn't much narrative to add, the video is pretty self-explanatory. So, without further adieu, please enjoy this walk-through of our freezer storage.
A Few Notes:
- Smart Source Seafood is where our salmon share came from. I really like their business model, and the salmon is top notch. If you do pay them a visit, tell Maddie I sent you!
- Baldwin Brook Farm is where our chicken, pork, and beef are from. Mavis is the nicest farmer you will ever meet and I wouldn't mind if my own living quarters were as lovely as that of the animals at Baldwin Brook.
As you can see, our set up is simple and I do not have fancy organizers (though there are plenty of choices to be found at department stores if that work's better for you). Cardboard boxes and wire baskets have served us well. There's no denying chest freezers are more difficult to keep organized, but if I just get in there for about 30 minutes, 3-4 times a year, that's enough to take stock and whip things back into shape.
I hope this was helpful to those of you who've asked about this topic, and I hope I didn't just encourage yet another chore for those of you who didn't know you're freezer needed organizing. It doesn't! If your system is working for you, keep things as they are. And ignore all Virgo bloggers and their crazy ways. xo
