The big chest freezer died. With it went a fair bit of meat, some nice pasta sauce, some squash, probably about a bushel of beans, several pints of applesauce, and a number of peaches, blueberries, cranberries, and apples. As well as some oddments, ranging from turkey stock to some birds being used for still life drawing (sorry Mom, but PONG was emanating from that package, and it was rather….soft).
I did save the fifty year old piece of wedding cake though!
But for the most part, Mush, or almost mush, or simply not enough space in the regular freezer.
That will teach me to take up canning.
That d—- thing was only about four years old too. I bet the warranty was three and a half.
