The Inventory

Pumpkin Muffins

2 dozen large pumpkin muffins and 2 dozen mini muffins, gone in days

I’ve been meaning to make an inventory of all of our preserved food so we know how often to open a new jar of pickles or how quickly we can go through our frozen fruit before feeling sad that there is no more. However, I lost my nesting urge pretty much right around my due date (I am 41 weeks today!) and for the last week I have been completely avoiding any homemaking activities besides making K.’s sandwiches in the morning and ensuring that she eats breakfast.  Today I finally felt a wee bit inspired and dug through the freezer and cold room to come up with the following list. I also chopped up two bunches of kale, tossed them with oil and salt and put them in the dehydrator, so hopefully I’ll be able to add kale chips to the list soon! (Also if you were thinking of bringing us food once baby arrives but this list makes you think we don’t need it – you’re wrong! With five people in the house we go through anything edible very quickly, so we’d appreciate any tastiness anyone would like to offer).

Freezer:

  • 1 gluten-free apple pear pie
  • 2 bags chocolate zucchini maple walnut muffins
  • 7 shepherds pies
  • 4 bags soup

    Seven shepherd’s pies, made with ground turkey and love.

  • 1 bag chocolate beet carrot muffins
  • 1 bag pumpkin muffins
  • 3 bags peaches
  • 3 bags green beans
  • 7 whole peaches

  • 1 large chocolate beet cake

  • 2 bags of grapes
  • 1 bag of oatmeal cookies

Preserves (by the jar):

Four lasagnas for the freezer – some topped with cheese, some with tomatoes

  • 12 maple vanilla peaches

    Dehydrated apple chips. Days of effort, but totally worth it.
