Today’s photo challenge subject is “In My Freezer”. Whenever I mentally (or physically) look into my freezer, I can’t help but smile. One of the first things I see is the lid to a can of stewed tomatoes that includes a little love (aka “la”) note from my husband. Two years ago, I was making a batch of stewed tomatoes and didn’t can them because it was my own recipe and hadn’t been tested. I opted for the freezer method instead. When I freeze things, I reuse old spaghetti, pickle or jam jars. Really any jars with a great fitting lid. My husband entered the kitchen while I was putting the lids on all the jars, so I handed him the sharpie and asked him to label the lids and put them in the freezer. The next time I opened up the freezer, this one stood out from all the rest.
You see, somewhere along the line, we got completely lazy when saying I love you, which got shortened to I La U. It’s been like that for years. Now every time I open the freezer, whether he’s here or not, my husband tells me that he loves me. I informed him last year that we are never eating that jar of stewed tomatoes. I la my la note!
