the freezer is a pleaser

a temporarily tidy shelf of bananas, muffins, lemon juice cubes, grapes, almonds & a pretzel

September is busy- back to school and hectic fall routines. This can cause a lot of food waste (ok, at least in our family) as we recalibrate. Although I’m thankful for my compost bin, I’m even more appreciative of my freezer right now. Browning bananas, extra muffins and bagels, grapes we’re not getting to, leftover tomato paste and an overabundance of homemade pesto- they all go into the freezer until I’m ready to use them. It’s like getting an extension on your homework! Write the date on the outside because who can remember that kind of stuff?
