He said I won because my freezer has the previous tenant’s wedding cake. (Click the image for more detail.)
In my defense, my roommate’s cousin subletted her apartment to us. So we have be considerate of her things. You might recall a Seinfeld episode where Elaine gets busted for eating someone else’s wedding cake. Lesson learned: don’t touch the wedding cake, no matter what!
Here’s a stroll through the rest of my freezer. I’ve amassed so much stuff because:
- I don’t eat a lot, so it takes a long time to finish food.
- I buy in bulk to save money.
- I bake a lot and preserve goods in the freezer.
- I’m frugal. For example, I kept the gravy from my roast pork and saved office food that would have gone in the trash. I’ve also saved empty shrimp shells for one and a half years, telling myself I’ll make really good seafood broth someday.
If you think that’s a lot, there’s lots of stuff I couldn’t photograph because it was hidden in the back. I’ve also got blueberries, bananas, pureed acorn squash, lemon juice, lemon zest, chicken stock, ground pork and leftover wonton skins and probably stuff I forgot I even saved.
