This afternoon I thawed two pieces of Food Saver sealed cod from 2014 that were as good as the day I froze them. I'm out of store-bought tartar sauce so I used an online recipe and mixed up some ingredients in the fridge (capers seems to be the secret ingredient) to have with it and was pleased with the results. I thawed a much more recent whole-grain baguette that I cut into slices cross-wise and toasted to use with hummus that I need to thaw.
Maps. I'm a hoarder, to be sure, but I decided again to act as if my kids were going through the box and tossed about 3/4 of them. I kept a few of places I might actually drive to, and as out-of-date documents they are placeholders until I get a newer one at each state welcome station. Sometimes I had to figure out who was governor (the old Texas map with Rick Perry, for example, is gone). I have a small cloth bag of maps now in the new SUV; I had a bag of more current maps in the old SUV but I think I left it unlocked in the driveway one day and someone grabbed it, perhaps thinking it was a purse? This looking at stuff through my children's eyes seems to be a good exercise.
