Subject: RE: BS: Nov 2010 Declutter & Exercise reports
It's late, I'm headed to bed in a couple of minutes. I came in to turn off the computer, so will report first.

I was on my feet for quite a while in the kitchen, cutting up and blanching pablano peppers. I have a recipe I like, and they will be cooked however they're used, so I chose to trim stems, seed, and cut in half these small (3-4") peppers before blanching for 3-4 minutes before freezing. This has removed a couple of containers from the fridge.

I cooked a chicken breast (froze the rest of the skinnless boneless pack) and a small casserole dish of the pepper/cheese/relleno casserole for the next couple of days. But I was able to move quite a few bulky things out of the fridge. The dishes have also been washed and the containers are air drying now in the dishwasher.

I swept several rooms and cleaned out the antique 3-legged hanging fireplace pot that used to hold cat toys. Now they're in a bag in the pantry and the pot will be re-purposed. Another load of laundry has finished so it will go in the dryer before I head to bed. Today I cleaned the burners and the stove top and rearranged the freezer a bit. It's beginning to look at lot like the holidays in my kitchen.
