      Ok, just because I have not done one in quite a while, I went down and did a freezer inventory. My freezer is in the garage now... I liked it better, back in my apartment, when it was in the kitchen next to the fridge/freezer.... I was mostly making note of meats but also some other things. Here's what I have got- any suggestions and ideas are appreciated! I'm always looking for new inspiration!

      I have:

      (beef/venison)
      1 lb pack of "venison to grind"
      4 hamburgers
      1 pack Aldi stew meat
      1 small pack of venison for pepper steaks

      (poultry)
      2 BIG turkeys- one I am thawing tomorrow, planning to cook this weekend
      5 lb bag of wings
      1 roasting chicken
      1 5lb bag of boneless skinless chicken breasts (IQF)
      Family pack of bone-in thighs
      1 small bag chicken nuggets

      (pork)
      1 very large "ham thing"... I say "ham thing" because my BF works at a school- when we had the big storm in October, FEMA came in and turned it into a shelter, it served as a shelter for a week and he worked over 100 hours that week, when they cleared out, Fema wanted all the left over food to be thrown in the dumpster, even things that were never thawed... so BF grabbed this giant ham- it's like 2 feet long.... I don't know if it is real ham, lunch meat or "composite meat product" or what... one day we're just gonna have to thaw it and figure it out but it is a LOT of ham....
      1 "pea-soup pack"- contains a ham bone and some big chunks of ham meat that will be used to make pea soup.
      2 packs of "red-hots"
      1 lb italian sausage (planning to make that thing Carol posted about ages ago- with lentils and spinach, that you make in the crock pot)
      1 pack pork cutlets
      1 large (3 lb?) pork roast
      4 lbs of bacon

      (other)
      large frozen bag mango chunks
      frozen raspberries
      1 1/2 cups frozen rhubarb sauce
      ww bread
      Mozarella cheese- lots (4 cups?)
      shredded chddar about 2 cups
      2 packs of spaghetti meat sauce that I just made
      large bag of raviolis
      salmon burgers
      Peirogies (sp?)
      Fish sticks (DD loves these, I don't)
      6 packs english muffins (also thanks to fema)
      3 containers of juice concentrate
      Some baking ingredients like cocnut, choc. chips and some nuts
      Gallon jar 2/3 full with turkey stock

      (veggies)
      lots of frozen veggies- I have mixed veg, corn, green beans, a brocoli/cauliflower/carrot combo thing in cheese sauce and broccoli.

      This is just the frozen stuff... I'm figuring I have a months worth of food right here.
