So now we’re doing this thing where we order our food 6 months in advance….

Namita recently heard about these companies out in Pennsylvania or wherever that will provide you with a commercial freezer, and 6 months of meats and other foods at a time. It’s all organic, individually packaged, and the salesman is coming next Tuesday……

All of the husbands out there — you know I’m asking, “Wait, what’s happening?” I laugh, but Namita must often wonder what I’m talking about at times as well. Of course, I’m usually asking for approval, and she’s usually telling me what will be happening. 😉

So there I am a week later, and some sales guy named Rod or Rob (or whatever his name was) from Five Star Home Foods is trying to sell us on this program. You select the types of foods you want, be it chicken filets, steaks, hamburgers, etc. They deliver a large commercial freezer, and six month supply of food. It’s all flash frozen and individually wrapped.

We signed up but they allow you to cancel if you don’t like the free trial pack of food they give you. We tried their steak burgers and pork chops. They were… fine. They’re smaller than you would buy in the store, but my wife says it’s because they’re all organic.

Alright, I’m in. I’m not a big advocate for organic food. I’m not against it by any means, but I’m not going out of my way to buy organic. I’ll do cage-free eggs and conflict-free Nathans hot dogs all the time.

So here we are. We have this massive commercial freezer in our garage stocked with food. It’s been a few weeks now, and no worries. I’m still lazy and I like eating out, but it’s nice to know there are supplies in the house. Last night, I grilled pork chops and chicken breasts. Small portions, but you have so many, you know? And they were fine.
