labeling leftovers

The freezer is a blessing and a curse. It is a magic ice box that transforms things - it saves perishable food from rotting, but it also can crystallize things beyond recognition. I have tried wax pencils (rubs off), sharpie (rubs off faster with condensation), masking tape (glue that is nearly impossible to scrub off), and for a while was just throwing things into the freezer in different size containers hoping that would jog my memory to what's what.

No more!

A friend recommended painters tape - the blue stuff you can use to help keep paint of floors and trim when paining interior walls and surfaces - and it rules. It sticks to things, holds up to being in the freezer, but comes off without leaving gook on your glass or plastic. If you want to make it even easier for yourself, or anyone with less than dexterous hands (kids, people with arthritis, etc.) you can fold the edge of your label back on itself and you create an instant pull-tab.

Also yes,  you should be jealous of my goat curry. It is awesome.
