I am sure I am not alone in taking stock of the supplies on hand. I did the deep freeze dive and the strangest thing I found was frozen fish I labeled "Make Lox". Then I checked the upstairs fridge freezer and threw out all the WTH did I waste a container on this stuff.

On the upside I have enough chopped meat to make 4 million tacos, 3 million meat loaves and 2 million shut up and eat it meals.

@Misschief & @bookreader451 , you've both got interesting things! I am a bit alarmed at what's NOT in my freezer....no frozen overripe bananas! For my entire adulthood, I'd been throwing overripe bananas in the freezer to make banana bread later. No one could possibly make or eat enough banana bread for all of the hundreds bananas I've had (and thrown out...) over the years...but suddenly ...nothing. This is the surest sign yet that the end of the world is nigh.....

I did the search on Friday, while my husband was out doing some stocking up. I came across a package of badly freezer burned crocodile meat. It was given to us by my daughter when she moved a year ago. It has been tossed.
I had alligator fritters once. I do remember liking them.

Hmm.... Fish sticks, spanikopita, popcorn shrimp, cooked ground beef, veggies, goats milk (for soap), pumpkin purée, lunchbox ice packs, and raspberries. Nothing too weird this time. There's usually something unidentifiable, but I recently cleaned out...

I have a package of microwave fish. It was a 2 pack and the microwave made it.... I didn’t finish it. Luckily there’s instructions for boiling the package to cook the fish but I was a little traumatized.

I also have sampling’s of popsicles from the past 3-4 years. My husband eats popsicles like nothing else exists every summer and occasionally I get different flavors to try. There’s always one or two from the previous box that gets forgotten when I buy a new box. Half the door is full of popsicle singles with no flavor labels. We’re gonna play roulette this year.

I bought like three weeks worth of frozen "healthier" meals from sprouts and cleared my freezer out. Also, in a panic I bought like three boxes of ice cream sandwiches.

I had the idea to make a wild berry port during the summer. Of course I never got around to it but I have a lot of frozen blackberries and serviceberries still in my freezer.

Freezer 1 - meat and ice cream (mostly).
Freezer 2 - strawberries, blue berries, peaches and apples. Jan may have snuck in some veggies.

Then we have a pantry for canned goods ( tins). And dry goods. If'n you're hungry come on by.

Stuff I am not sure I will ever use lol, things that have been in there for 2 years- like the 4# of Blueberries we picked and I use in Smoothies (bananas too).
Bunch of things like Veggies, pastas (tortellini), fish sticks. There is also a tiny bag of Dog treats hand made that have been there for 3 years, we don't have a dog but DD wanted to get it for a friend. {roll eyes}

Fortunately/Unfortunately we had a power outage in the fall so had to toss most of the food in the freezers. So, I had stocked up on meats and vegetables when things got back to normal so I have plenty to get by for some time. Chicken, turkey breast, ground beef, pasties, meatballs, veggies, fruit plus homemade pea soup, spaghetti sauce. I also have a fairly large pantry stocked with canned goods. I've made two trips to a small local market for fresh veggies and fruit and bread. Otherwise I'm set. Wish I could find flour but none to be found.

That's what my mom in Saskatchewan said. Said she'd pop them in the mail.....
I'll have some soon enough, I think: Sunday's online grocery order had 3 bunches and next Monday's has another 3 bunches....

Stuck in my head
Hub just called our local meat market, and we are going to pick up a side of beef and a half hog in the next few weeks so we will be fully stocked again.
Right now in our freezer(s) is frozen fruit, meats and goats milk (for soap) That's about it.
We have enough in there if we weren't able to shop again, we'd be able to survive for about 6 weeks, then another 3 on leftovers. :(

I did my (now) bi-monthly shopping yesterday. I finally was able to get flour and felt like a millionaire. Still no yeast though. Or toilet paper or disinfecting wipes. At least now I can use those 3 bananas that have been in my freezer for longer than I care to admit.

Flour and yeast. Can't find it ANYWHERE. I thought, oh people are hoarding bread, fine, I'll just make my own. Umm, NOPE.
I just found both flour and yeast at a small bulk food store I forgot about by me. I got 10lbs of flour and a pound of yeast. I'll share the yeast with a couple of my neighbors that have been trying to find it.
