Silver lining pie
One bright side of the fridge's demise is that I was forced to make a pie out of all the partial bags of berries that had been in the freezer. An arbitrary mixture of raspberries, blueberries, cranberries, and mixed berries took quite well to my mom's tried-and-true berry pie method of dumping flour and sugar into the berries in until it looks right, then dumping this filling dotted with butter in the old standard Betty Crocker oil crust, and baking at 425F until it smells good. Mmmmm. Fortunate friends got to come over and share it with us while we watched the replay of the day's Vuelta a Espana stage projected on a big sheet in the atrium.
Another bright side is the sheer quantity of bacon we've been consuming. Who knew there was so much squirreled away in the back of the freezer?
Stranger food in the coming days for us, as I work through the dregs.
