Enjoying the Fruits of my Labor

If you’ve been watching this space for awhile, you know that I made a lot of soup and other dishes over the course of the summer and fall. I have a 5 ft tall freezer in the basement and a standard top freezer in the kitchen, both absolutely full. My goal is to totally eat through both freezers before the next CSA season starts in June. I don’t think that I’ll have a problem doing it if I stick to my resolution: no new soup. I set this resolution at the end of the season. I made a batch of mushroom barley soup during Christmas time but we had friends over and that soup is long gone. I’m not counting chicken soup, which is necessary every couple of weeks or so. Ok, so I’m not totally following my resolution.

We have eaten three containers of soup from the freezer this week: roasted beet, butternut squash with tomatillo, and pumpkin soup. I think I’m going to make some soup later today with all the veggies that are left in my fridge; I know there’s a rutabaga, a head of red cabbage, some turnips, carrots, and beets. But then I’m done. No more new soup.

Oh, who am I kidding. Yeah, that would be me.
