    Default Whine, whine, whine

    May I whine tonight? Someone didn't close the freezer door on the fridge and everything, (everything) defrosted. I am frantically baking Rhodes rolls, making monkey bread (two) and cooking things we can eat tomorrow night, throwing some things out....and it is so hot here, sure didn't want to have the oven on for so long, or be cooking all night.

    Oh, that's awful! I'm glad you can salvage some of the food. We tend to buy local, grass-fed raised beef in 50-lb. batches, and I often worry that we'll lose a bunch if the power fails. Now I can add "if someone leaves the door open" to my worry list.
    Toni ... If I keep sewing long enough, will they make their own dinner?

    so sorry this happened. we have been in the same situation before but not because someone was neglectful but because the power went out for a week . we had to toss everything.

    You have good reason to whine but glad you are making the best of it. It is a shame to toss foods but you have to be careful.

    A large bag of chicken breasts defrosted so I am going to make chicken enchiladas tomorrow. Thanks for listening ladies, it could have been worse. It could have been our big freezer in the garage and then you would have heard me screaming all the way from California. We have a generator in case the electricity goes out, but sometimes you just don't catch it soon enough.

    That just happened to me about a month ago. Sure cleaned out the freezer! The good thing about cooking it all in one day is that you don't have to cook again for a week. Just heat and serve!

    We have a fridge in the garage. When our oldest boy was a young teen he was always in a hurry. He would slam the refrigerator door and the freezer door would open. Got onto him several times about it. I did get to where I would put a plastic zip loc filled with ice cubes in the fridge so I could tell if anything defrosted. If the ice cubes had melted and reformed then I knew someone was in trouble.

    I put a sign on the door of our freezer to "Please close the door tightly". One time DH didn't get the door shut tightly, but I caught it in time for no real damage to occur. JCY

    I too had a freezer door that popped open when the fridge door was slammed. Got out the packing tape and taped the freezer Shut!
    My DH and kids laughed at me but I was up cooking all night one time too many! New fridge has freezer on the bottom and doesn't seem to have the same problem!!! So sorry for your misadventure. But I highly recommend the tape shut solution!!
