[Comments] (2) Wasted: Yesterday afternoon I discovered that the freezer had come unplugged. I was chagrined. However, I girded up my loins to do what needs to be done, and I have filled the trash bin with the contents of the big freezer. I am particularly sad about the corned beef brisket and the whole chickens. Not so sad about a steak I didn't know I had; I will NEVER freeze steak again because when eating it you can tell it's been frozen. Gretel had the stew beef and she has been busy with it all afternoon.

Survivors were the bulk pack spices and a bag of Hershey's miniatures as well as a five pound bag of walnuts and a huge slab of chocolate that I think is Leonard's.

Conveniently, Grandma Jessie's ancient fridge is standing right by the big freezer so I moved stuff into the freezer of it while we defrost. (It shouldn't take long in this heat!) Most of what I moved was frozen water packs for the cooler, but I also bought a whole bunch of chicken breast yesterday. I've never had such help in defrosting before; I always had to pack all the coolers. Of course, I didn't have to use too much room, because nothing much from the big freezer survived.

There was stuff in there I didn't even know what it was or how old! I think I'm going to get a dry erase board to list the contents on the front door of the freezer.

I think I'm going to start keeping my TPN supply in Grandma Jessie's refrigerator. Rachel and I have had it with having it in the house.

I think the TPN idea is a good one; every time I visit, I am so nervous I am going to break it when I get the milk out.

I must agree. At least the chocolate survived.
