So it's a gloomy, rainy day in New York city. That reminds me of one of my favorite old songs by the band Chicago - "Another Rainy Day in New York City." Anyway, I'm spending the day catching up on my blog reading and am seeing a few posts that include photos of people's freezers and refrigerators for various reasons.
And so I picked up my camera, walked into my kitchen and took a picture of my freezer. Obviously these are not beauty shots but I swear I didn't edit the contents. This is what my freezer looks like. So I'm inviting you to comment with links to photos of your freezers. Extra credit if you include the fridge! :)
But back to my freezer. Clearly we have no children so no need to call Child Protective Services or anything. And, in my own defense, I included a photo of my veggie crisper to show that there is healthy cooking and eating going on around here...in between cocktails, of course.
I am not a coffee drinker but Brian is and Zabar's is his favorite brand. Behind the coffee are a couple of packages of frozen spinach because that's one of the few frozen vegetables that I have lots of uses for. I need to restock my frozen peas but otherwise I really prefer fresh. On the right side is my baking stock which currently houses butter (we don't eat full fat butter on our bread so that's just for baking), leftover chocolate chips and leftover peanut butter from my batch of homemade doggie biscuits. I realize, of course, that frozen peanut butter is impossible to eat. And yes, that is the point. I have certain willpower control issues, OK? :)
The bottles in the freezer are gin, regular vodka, vanilla vodka and Cointreau. We like the rum, whiskey and bourbon at room temperature and the liqueurs can't be in there because they would freeze. And, of course, you need chilled glasses. Oh, we sometimes include some vanilla ice cream in our creamy drinks which explains the small container.
So, let's see your freezers. Or just leave the name of whatever 12-step, self-help program you think we need. Happy rainy day in New York City!
