Freezing in the Time of Corona

THE BAD NEWS AND THE GOOD NEWS

SO:

πŸ™ My fridge freezer has kaput and its’ contents are slowly melting…

πŸ™ Everyone I know has a full freezer, so cannot ‘adopt’ my food failures…

πŸ™ Due to lock down, I cannot invite anyone round to share in the quickly spoiling spoils…

πŸ™ I’ve got to eat, cook, or throw away good food…

AND:

πŸ™‚ The cats are dining on steak, salmon and mince (I mean, LOOK at this pic: Sophia the sated cat, sleeping off a full belly breakfast)…

πŸ™‚ Today the household is eating the most spectacular buffet imaginable… So far on the menu – samosas, bhaji, burritos, Chicken goujons, Yorkshire Puddings, pizza and french fries… & we are adding to it by the minute…

πŸ™‚ Over the next few days we’ll be guzzling chicken stew, ravioli with the most delicious, chunky, gourmet sauce, and many other foodie delights, bounded only by my culinary imagination (I LOVE being presented with a set of random ingredients and turning them into delicious dining. Got THAT on acid!)…

πŸ™‚ I’m getting a new, bigger, more environmentally friendly, fridge freezer which (apparently) won’t need defrosting or smell of niffy food…

πŸ™‚ I used local trades people…

πŸ™‚ I have to eat, cook and have a clear out [ALL things I LOVE doing]…

So… I could see this as a disaster or an opportunity… And I chose: Laughter, a full belly, ingenuity, learning, and not to overstock or overthink. Ultimately I saw the silver lining and what can I tell you about that? Well, it was moist with condensation from all the chilled out food… Told you then.. πŸ˜‰
