Seems I need to defrost my freezer!

Before moving into my apartment, I had never before encountered an icebox of this antiquity. A few times, I have taken a hairdryer to it but am mostly too lazy so you can see now the state of my freezer. (As a lacto-ovo-vegetarian at home, I don’t have much meat in my freezer (except to make soup). So the current effort is to finish off the juice and peas and try the method of seating a pan of boiling water and catching all the water that runs off. Can we say, “Ugh”?

On this day..
