Freezer Burn

A couple of weeks ago I made a large vat o' soup. Zuppa Toscana - Alex and I love it. Steve at least likes it, as does Nathan. Danny doesn't, but 4 out of 5 surveyed do....

ANYWAY, I was chatting with Suzanne this afternoon and asking her what she was having for dinner - she mentioned soup -and I said "I have 3 bags of frozen soup in my freezer - that's what we'll have". A couple of hours later I open up my freezer...there's the soup...but wait! I put it in unfrozen - and the liquid all settled into one mass. I can't get the darn stuff out. I'll wait for Steve to give it a go before I resort to that old family standby. The hairdryer.

Too bad my favorite hairdryer is kaput. I could have had those babies out of there in minutes.

so-- is that the same recipe as the Olive Garden Toscana. I love that stuff, but I never thought about freezing it. Loved the picture - made me laugh.

It's pretty similar to Olive Garden's zuppa toscana - I found the recipe online - it freezes well, which is nice. I posted the recipe on May 14th of last year.

Unfortunately I may have to thaw all three to get some out.

Oops! I have to say even though it is wrong in so many ways to have a second freezer I love that I can lay things like that flat!

This post reminded me of "Chicken Soup" by Maurice Sendak. Love it!

If I had just a little more room in my garage I would get one. As it is, I have been enjoying not having to scrape my windows in the morning before seminary.
