A VERY Silly Thing in the Freezer

I save beef / chicken broth after I've roasted an animal, or part of an animal, for my carnivore husband.  Then I freeze the juice in a zippered baggie for future use. Recently, I made the mistake of tossing a broth bag in the freezer before it was cool. It wrapped itself around the grid shelf and froze in place.  I had to practically disassemble the freezer to get the thing loose.  

You don't see the problem here...


But, on the flip side...


Good grief.  All I could think was - a broth bag wearing a thong.  And I couldn't separate the two.  The bag was frozen solid to the grid and to itself.  

So I laughed hysterically and took a picture.  It seemed like the thing to do. 

My husband suggested I run hot water over the bag to free it from its misery.  Which I did.  But, oh my, what a sight.  :-) 

Don't try this at home.

Thanks for stopping by! This blog is challenging this year to say the least, and I will be glad when Z comes, but sad when it's over too. Here's to a great finish! I love the thong wearing broth bag! Made me LOL! Peace.

I'm a saver like you but have never had that one happen...I usually use containers instead of baggies though.

I feel your pain. I've done the same thing, but with soup.

Love the information about the naming of your blog and why. I great metaphor for life-the ballpark. You are right, is this about baseball? Maybe you will have posted Wrigley Field's 100th anniversary photo? Good for you to use your creative sense of things. Glad I stopped during the #Challenge.

The things we find in the freezer

Sadly, that's a common occurrence in the freezer here. I used to make chicken soup from scratch a lot... yeah... we lost a lot of good soup that way.

Laughing and taking a picture sounds like the perfect option. It's what bloggers do. :)
