5 Things to Freeze

My name is Karen and I’ve never met a freezer I didn’t like.

It wouldn’t matter how big it was.  I’d fill it.

Freezers are to me, what closets are to Paris Hilton.  And an undetermined portion of the American Armed Forces.

So in honour of my love of the freezer and all things freezable I have for you a short list of …

5 Things You Never Thought of Freezing!

Donuts!

Wool Sweaters

Leftover Yorkshire Pudding

Now you might be thinking? Why? Why, Karen would I freeze these things. Well I’ll tell you …

Donuts – If you buy a box of Krispy Kremes you have 2 options. Eat them all while wearing elastic pants before they go stale  or eat a reasonable amount and  throw the stale ones out.   Lose, lose. Freeze em to keep the donuts fresh and your pants fitting.

Soup – I always say I’m going to preserve my soups but I’m terrified of botulism, plus I don’t own a pressure cooker.  So make huge batches of your favourite homemade soup when the vegetables are in season and then freeze it into individual portions.  It’s basic brilliance.

Sweaters – The minute you see one of those tiny moths flying around your closet, put your wool sweaters in a plastic bag and freeze them for 72 hours. It’ll kill moth the eggs and larvae.

Milk – Milk doesn’t seem to go on sale all that often, but when it does you can freeze the extra.  Yes.  You really can!  Just remove the frozen bag, let it thaw in the fridge and give it a good shake before drinking.  Don’t forget about chocolate milk!

Yorkshire Pudding – I always think I’ve got my sh*t together whenever I make a roast beef dinner.  All goes well until the last 10 minutes when EVERYTHING has to be done at the same time.  Mashing the potatoes,  making the gravy, cutting the roast, sobering up the Betty.   Making a double batch of Yorkshire Pudding means you have an entire batch to freeze, thusly eliminating that one pain in the butt step the next time you make a roast.  Just defrost them.  They freeze PERFECTLY.  And seriously … who wants to eat a roast beef dinner without Yorkshire Pudding?  It’d be like eating pea soup without vinegar. How gauche.

Now if you’ll excuse me … I have to go take something out of the freezer.
