I actually have two freezers, the one above my fridge and a second upright. Whenever people come over one of the most common questions I get is, “How come you have two fridges?”

As I learn to do things differently I think I will eventually perhaps get rid of the second upright but for now I freeze a lot of things that I make and then store for later. I’m a busy single mom what can I say!

  • Giant ziplock bag of blueberries
  • Giant ziplock bag of cherries
  • Huge bag of mixed vegetables for stirfries (beans, carrots, brocoli, peas)
  • Various jars of nuts & seeds currently:
    pine nuts, hemp seeds, chopped almonds, chopped walnuts, sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds

In the big freezer:

  • Homemade vegetarian wontons
  • Homemade vegetarian chili
  • Bags of chopped spinach & kale
  • Large bags of apricots I have to make into jam
  • Flat bread
  • Perogies from Salmon Arm (if anyone knows how to reliably make these PLEASE come to my house!)
  • Various teas
  • Another huge bag of mixed beans

Points of pain: Glass doesn’t freeze so well if the contents are liquid or anything but dry.

In the winter or rather end of autumn I made a lot of soup and will freeze it into yogurt containers. I also have been known to stock up on bread and store it in the freezer as well.
