Subject: RE: BS: Recipes - what are we eating?
The old freezer died and some things got soft, but not too much defrosted completely, and today the new freezer was delivered, set up, and after chilling for four hours, is stuffed with the perishables that were in coolers since this morning when I emptied the old one. It was still working, but barely. Now that 50-year-old freezer is going to be recycled.

And I have some cooking to do with things that should be used soon. I can make baked goods and refreeze them, to start with. I do a mix of pumpkin and sweet potato in a spicy bread that is amazing, and some of the frozen sweet potato can go in with the fresh pumpkin here that I'll steam soon. The original recipe is just pumpkin, but I was short on the recipe a while back and added sweet potato to make up the volume and the results were mindblowingly good!
