Plumbing the depths of the freezer

Spring is for the annual garage cleaning. Fall is when I tackle the annual fridge and freezer inspection. While the fridge, with its science experiments in Tupperware containers, is usually more exciting, this time the freezer yielded an odd surprise.

Behind the popsicles and frozen fruit was a package of mini corn dogs that seem like the grocery-shopping equivalent of drunk dialing. I can't remember when or where I bought them (possibly Aldi?). They contain "chicken, pork and beef," and are proudly microwavable. And in case I might have been worried about portion size, the box says it contains approximately 16 batter wrapped cocktail franks.

The sell-by date is October 21, so it's good to know that I've got 13

days before the clock runs out. Although the

closeness of that date suggests that this package might be a multi-year

freezer lurker, the good news is we've only owned the freezer for 30

months.  

Ultimately this is the opposite of finding $5 in your

winter coat -- it's something you either reluctantly eat or

guiltily throw away. We always seem to have such good intentions when

it comes to leftovers and the freezer, but those good intentions just pave the road to the trash can.

From now on, I'm going to store everything in this battery-operated bagel dome. Do you know what's hiding in your freezer?
