An Ode to My Freezer

This is the final part of my 3-part series on freezers. Be sure to go back and read both the first part and the second part.

Okay, so this final part of my freezer series is taking a turn for the weird but, hopefully, amusing. Yes, I wrote an ode about my freezer. I even looked up the form and decided to go with the ten-line, ABABCDECDE format. I do think my iambic verse needs some work, but I hope you will enjoy it anyway!

An Ode to My Freezer
You let me buy large quantities of meat,
Gizzards, hearts, liver – all will last,
My fall squash still tastes oh, so sweet,
Saved meals remind me fondly of times past.

Beef, chicken, pork, and lamb,
Whether it’s meat or bone,
You make preservation easier.

From summer fruit to my Christmas ham,
The seasons are still shown,
And it’s all thanks to my chest freezer!

Does anyone else write poetry about their kitchen appliances? It would make me feel much better about myself if you share it in the comments!

    U.R.HIL.AR.I.OUS. Leslie wrote an ode to coconut oil. Uh, well I guess she didn’t quite finish the ode cause she didn’t know what an ode was . . . .It was a funny post too. But I get how it is to love something that makes your life easier. I have those items too. Mine would be the new knife set my husband bought me. Made all the difference!

      Thanks, Jen! I’ll have to take a look at Leslie’s ode to coconut oil. Sounds like fun! : ) Now you’ve got me thinking of all of the things I love in my kitchen. Maybe some more odes will be on the way…

    Thanks for your freezer posts. I havn’t written an ode but I feel close. I’ve been wanting a chest freezer but thought it impossible in my samll apt. with two children. Your posts gave me the motivation I needed to “make” a place for one and get on Craigslist and get one. It all happened so fast and I couldn’t be happier. Now I’m working on filling it up and convincing my 10 yr old daughter that it’s “normal” to have a freezer in your livingroom;)

      I’m so glad you got one so quickly! That’s awesome. I’m sure you’ll enjoy it as much as I enjoy mine. I couldn’t imagine going back to no freezer! Hopefully you’re 10-year-old will come around to the idea. 😉
