Today Kara and I defrosted the freezer, and we had a great time.
Well, ok - that may be a bit of an exaggeration, but it really was kind of fun. Kara melted the frost with the steamer, and I sucked it up with the shop vac. We were finished in record time.
I dumped over five gallons out of the vacuum when we were done - evidence that the task was long overdue.
As an added bonus, I found some bags of guava puree buried under all that ice. Tomorrow I'm going to start a batch of Guavalicious apple butter.
Maybe I'll even have a contest and give some away - provided there's enough interest (hint, hint).
