We have two freezers. One at the bottom of our fridge freezer in our larder and the other lives in our barn.
The later is fuelled by electricity that runs from the plug in the larder. The cable goes out of the window and finishes beside the upright small chest freezer thirty yards away.
It’s a perfect setup as long as no one jiggles the cable.
This morning Danny had bought a half price free range Gressingham duck from Tesco for Sunday lunch (always eaten in the evening). I knew that we had Victoria plums in the barn freezer and offer to fetch some to stuff the duck.
When I lifted the lid of the freezer I could see that something was very wrong. I usually struggle to mini defrost this freezer. Removing the ice from beneath the lid with a wooden spoon.
Today the contents had dropped. I could have stored a suckling pig in the cavity. There was very little ice.
We now are heads down cooking up the defrosted meat. We enjoyed minted lamb kebabs for lunch. Tomorrow and the next day it will be Wild Alaskan Smoked Salmon for lunchtime sandwiches. I have just turned off a slow cooked Spring game casserole in the slow cooker. Danny will finally be making home made sausages tomorrow evening whilst pork and veal meatballs simmer in the slow cooker. On Tuesday we will be making salami.
Meanwhile the Newmarket Computer Company have discovered that my sickly laptop needs a new hard drive. They can also copy my files to the new one. As these are not backed up (shame ?) I’m going to use their services and hopefully I might have my laptop back under my fingertips very soon.
Meanwhile this post is from a borrowed laptop so just time to write a bit but not answer comments or emails. Many apologies.
