Half Frozen Bottle of Water 

 I’m a big fan of ice cold water. It’s refreshing and invigorating and thirst quenching. I found a pretty useful life hack online a few months ago that allows me to have ice cold water whenever I want it. All you have to do is take a used bottle of water, fill it half way, lay it sideways in the freezer, and leave it alone for a few hours. Once the water is frozen, you open the bottle and fill it up the rest of the way. If you do it right, there will be ice on one side and water on the other. The ice makes the water cold instantly and keeps it chilled for hours. No muss, no fuss. I keep a half frozen bottle of water in the freezer at all times. It’s a cheap and easy way to impress thirsty guests when they come over. They think I’m smart and clever for coming up with it. I don’t tell them that I stole the idea from the internet. It’s not lying. It’s deceiving. There’s a difference.

Sour Gummies in the Freezer 

 I bought a packet of sour gummy worms today. I put them in the freezer. Why? Because they taste better cold. Everybody knows that putting chocolate bars in the freezer is a good idea. Fewer people are aware that putting sour gummies in the freezer is another way to satisfy the fat kid that lives inside of you. I suppose you could substitute regular gummies, but sour gummies are so much better. They have way more sugar. So the next time you have sour gummies and access to a freezer, I suggest you put those sour gummies in the freezer for a few hours and see how right I am. I didn’t invent storing sour gummies in the freezer, I’m simply a fan of the practice and want to spread the word.

Ice Cube Tray

I have a freezer in my kitchen. It doesn’t have an icemaker. My roommates and I have to use ice cube trays. An ice cube tray is a plastic or rubber flexible trough that you pour water into, then you stick it in the freezer. The freezer makes the water really cold and really cold water turns into ice. It’s not magic. It’s science or physics or something. I don’t know, it’s been way too long since I was in school. Anyway, if you like ice but don’t have an icemaker, ice cube trays are the way to go. Your only other option is buying ice at the store, but that requires wearing pants. The only major downside to ice cube trays is that they don’t refill themselves automatically. You have to do it yourself. Consequently you’ll often find empty ice cube trays in the freezer.

Finding Forgotten Food in the Freezer

I came home kind of late the other night and I was kind of tipsy. I needed food. I didn’t think that I had any. I checked the freezer just to be sure. I found a half-empty box of Bagel Bites. I was beyond stoked. I let out a cheer and did a victory dance. Finding forgotten food in the freezer is like hitting the late night munchie jackpot. A minute earlier and my stomach was growling and I was desperate for food. A minute later and I suddenly had five little bagel pizzas to scarf down. I popped that shit in the oven, because fuck the microwave. If you’re going to eat Bagel Bites, you have to do it right. Microwaving them leaves them soggy and bland. Baking them in the oven makes them crispy and delicious. They go great with a cold soda or a can of PBR. I didn’t mean for this post to turn into a commercial for Bagel Bites. These things write themselves, I just go along with it. There’s no denying that when pizza is on a bagel, you can eat pizza anytime.

Chilled Pint Glass

I have an awesome roommate. She’s clean, respectful, she likes to cook and she makes extra for me to eat, and she always keeps a couple of pint glasses in the freezer. Nothing brings out the flavor of a beer like a chilled pint glass or a nice frosty mug after a long day at work. It’s hard to improve a quality craft brew, but pouring a bottle into a chilled pint glass is always a good start. You don’t want to drink from the bottle or a can anyway. Start keeping a few glasses in the freezer and experience beer the way you should. Be be forewarned, you can’t go back once you’ve start using chilled pint glasses. You wouldn’t want to anyway, but you are going to lose valuable freezer space.
