Matthew's Science Experiment

Supplies Needed:

1 freezer
$100 worth of food
1 on/off button or knob
1 small boy who likes buttons and knobs:

Step by step instructions:

* Go out to the garage
* Grab your scooter and head toward the back door so your mom thinks you are going in the backyard to play
* Once she goes back into the house, open the freezer
* Turn control knob to "off"
* Shut freezer door so she doesn't know you were in there
* Return about a week later to check progress:

Most interesting findings:

* Rhodes Rolls actually explode through the bag when thawed (those are the rolls all over the bottom shelf and in the door).
* Chicken juices are not contained even by vacuum-packing.

Total damage:

6 lbs. of spoiled chicken
4 lbs. of bacon
4 lbs. of butter
3 lbs. of ready-to-eat shredded pork (that I painstakingly slow-cooked last week)
60 frozen rolls
6 containers of homemade jam
Frozen spinach, Healthy Choice Fudge Bars, and Skinny Cow ice cream sandwiches

Sigh.  Oh well.  I've been meaning to defrost the freezer anyway.

Bad evil cute Matthew! Jacob did the same thing when he was that age. It is so sad. Especially to lose the fudge bars and Skinny Cow treats.

Oh Bonnie.... you are cursed. Seriously. If it's gonna happen, it's gonna happen on your turf! ;) Your handling it much better than I would. And who knew about Rhodes rolls? Wowsers. Wish I was around the corner to help you clean up! Your kids will hoot over this one years down the road. xo
