Sorting Out the Freezer

Sorting out the freezer is a big job, that’s why I always put it off. The puddings, the stock… Ice creams, they’re fine, but the meat worries me. My next door neighbour says you shouldn’t keep frozen meat too long, and my mother in law is always threatening to come and ‘tidy things up’. I’ll have to have a chuck-out, particularly the legs, the shoulder and those lovely ribs. Could I take them to the dump? Would anyone notice? I wish Paul was here to help. I should have thought of that before I put him in the freezer.


MURDER AT THE OLD ABBEY was featured in the daily newsletter.
