New Year's Resolution #32

(this post is especially for Diana, who seemed to be hinting earlier that I've been a slacker about posting recently...)

Here's my first resolution for you.  (Posted in no particular order.)

In 2011 I resolve to ALWAYS (did I say ALWAYS clearly enough??) write on ziploc bags before I put them in the freezer--both the content and the date.  I always think I will remember what is in the bag, and then later I pull it out and it's an amorphous indistinctly colored mass and I never know if I should cook it or throw it away as quickly as possible.  So this year I resolve to do a better job of labeling.

A closely related but less frequently needed freezer goal would be to never again forget to turn the freezer back on after I clean it.  That was nasty...


  1. Oooh...good one. I didn't even know you could turn your freezer off. I've never in my life cleaned an oven or a freezer...sad huh?

  2. I was thinking of you the other day as I unpacked my kitchen stuff. I came across this small container with about 1/2 a cup of some kind of white stuff and could not for the LIFE of me remember what it was! So I dumped it down the drain, only to remember 30 seconds later that it was sugar! Oops. (I never needed to label it before because it was by my sugar jar on my counter, but after the move I guess it wasn't identifiable enough!)
