My lazy girl/clean out the freezer soup turned out delicious. The plan was to add barley but before I had time to add it, Vince said “Let’s eat!” so we ate and then I added barley to the leftovers.
During winter, and I know we have a long time before winter is here but a girl can dream, I love soup. I think I could eat a toasted cheese sandwich and about any kind of soup every day. Even in summer, I could eat a cold salad and soup every day.
Some day I’m going to get organized enough to have a whole shelf in my freezer that’s dedicated to soups. I could freeze in sizes just enough for the two of us to have a meal. That would be pretty easy to do . . the only hard part is having a clean shelf in our freezer!
Speaking of shelves in the freezer, my little “pizza table” things arrived yesterday so I can’t wait to get a shelf in the freezer just for the freeze dryer trays. Right now I can put one tray in the freezer on top of the fridge in the shop; I can put one tray in the freezer at the top of the fridge in the sewing room and two in the big freezer in the sewing room. Some day . . maybe next week, I’ll get a whole shelf cleaned out just for those trays.
The freezer in the sewing room needs to be defrosted. That’s going to be a huge job but I might as well just do it.
