Kit – freezer pens

Now, I don’t have a freezer pen. If I did I would probably have avoided the sweet crumble topping on macaroni cheese incident last week. Our guests were very polite, saying they thought it added a certain something, but I think I’m going to try and stick with bread crumbs on my macaroni from now on.
So, I’m going to invest in a freezer pen. Ideally it would be one that would write on and rub off again, but apparently these don’t exist. Instead you have to buy special freezer stickers which peel on and off. It seems like an additional layer of hassle, but I think in the long run it will be worth it.
At the moment I defrost stuff and hope for the best. When I tell our childminder (aka Uncle Brendan) what’s for the children’s tea it’s usually a case of “The brown stuff in the blue container.” If he asks what it is, I have to confess I’m not entirely sure. Lentils? Mince meat? Hopefully not chocolate mousse…Claire


  1. Ha. I did this last week – defrosted UFO (Unidentifiable Frozen Object). Turns out it was tomato sauce that I had made and batch frozen. I adapted Jamie Oliver’s Killer Jerk Chicken, using the sauce as a base. Turned out fine this time, but may well invest in a freezer pen.

  2. I know stickers can be a pain, but I bought some from paperchase in a book, with their pantry peepers design ( They say things like “made with love” and reminder to write a date also. I can’t see them on the website, but you might be lucky in store.
    – They brighten up my freezer anyway :)
