I love the freezer. It's ideal for storing things that I don't eat right away, but want to be able to eat at a moment's notice.

We were going through a bag a week before, and 75% of them were moldy and inedible. I've got a humongous bag of chocolate chips that will soon become cookies. And my new favorite, whole wheat pita.
Instant Delicious Pizza: Take a whole wheat pita, spread on some jarred pesto, top with a couple of spoonfuls of herbed goat cheese and some strips of string cheese. Throw it in an oven at 425º for 10 minutes (preferably a convection oven) et Voila! Pizza.
