Leftover frozen mystery meals
Anyone else do this? I couldn't ever remember to buy masking tape last year and so I, (as I did the year before, and the year before, and...) just put leftovers, to include stocks of various kinds, in the freezer with no identification, thinking at the time that surely I would be able to figure out what it was and when I stuck it in there. Like really... Tonight I am having something that appears to have black beans and maybe a sweet potato slice in it. I thought when I pulled it out that it was some borscht, but surely I wouldn't have made borscht with black beans.
Anyone else having a mystery meal tonight, or is it only me? Sigh.
I am pleased to report, though, that I have finally managed to acquire some masking tape and hopefully will never go through this again (next year).
Forget about masking tape. It doesn't last under freezer conditions, & then all you end up is mystery packages & little pieces of tape at the bottom of your freezer.
Do yourseld a HUGE favor & buy what is an extremely inexpensive roll of freezer labels. These are made specifically to remain on packages until purposely removed by soap & water. Can be found in supermarkets & any other places where canning supplies are sold (i.e. hardware stores, etc.). Look for "freezer use" or "freezer proof" on the package.
Again - forget about masking tape. It ain't gonna help you.
REALLY??? I think that was part of my masking tape problem. I was always searching for such a thing at the grocery store, to no avail. The hardware store... I shall have to expand my search. Then there are the special pens, which I assumed existed but never showed up for me when I looked.
