These may be a little bit hard to read, if you click on the pictures they will open in a different window and should be slightly easier to read. Last time I made out an inventory it was a handwritten one, this time I have copied it onto the computer for safe-keeping ;-)
As you can see, there is much more meat in the chest freezer than I thought, twenty nine different kinds of meat and lots more if you count all the individual chicken breast fillets, drumsticks etc. There should be no danger of my carnivore of a husband going hungry until he can dip into the real world of self sufficiency and re-stock the freezer by his own hand .... and gun.
What I will do is count the individual items in the boxes and list them on the inventory as and when I dip into them to remove something. I didn't want to keep things out of the freezer, or the lid up for any longer than I had to.
If there doesn't seem to be many 'vegetarian' items this is because I have a drawer of the upright freezer with a selection of things in. I will make a separate inventory for this freezer sometime during the coming week to get everything finally listed.
Now this is done I can menu plan from the inventory instead of standing at the freezer scratching my head AND my freezer is lovely and tidy .... and I can actually see where things are. Putting things back in their categories means that I can now find what I need and hopefully keep it this tidy as we eat our way to the bottom.
