I was chatting with our friends at Southeast Steel, the downtown Orlando appliance warehouse, and was not surprised to learn that they’re getting lots of calls for new freezers.
Some people, I suppose, have done a lot of panic buying at the grocery store, purchasing more meats and frozen entrees in the event that their favorite Stouffer’s dinner disappears from the shelves.
Others, like me, are cooking more, making stocks, sauces and soups, too much to be consumed within a few days. So we package it up – my vacuum sealer has been getting a workout – label the containers and toss them into the freezer.
Which is quickly filling up at my house. And I have a refrigerator/freezer in the kitchen and in the garage. I’m at the point where I might have to take the bottle of vodka out of the freezer to make room for packages of homemade moussaka.
