One of our regular participants, Gawilli of Back in the Day, decided not to enter this week's survey of refrigerators. However, she did write a hilarious post about not participating. Go on over to Back in the Day, and read the post Refrigerator Rights. This is worth your time.
Is a question frequently heard by the parents of teenage boys. This is also what Amy W. of A Family Story is asking this week's Fun Monday participants. Amy wants to see the inside of our refrigerators. Easy enough , right? Not so quick, sweet Amy has instructed us not to clean before taking the pictures. I thought of a way to cheat and not cheat at the same time. Since the fridge needs cleaned, I figured that I could take a before picture and then take pictures as I cleaned the refrigerator. That cleaning impulse passed quickly. So here is my NOT so clean icebox.
Refrigerator magnets adorn both the front and side of the appliance. Most of the magnets hold postcards. We do have one piece of artwork by our lovely granddaughter, who is two.
Inside the freezer, you will see a big box of frozen soft pretzels, frozen chicken breasts, frozen fudge, ice, and a few more items. If you look closely, there are black styrofoam cups that are decorated with pumpkins. I use those cups to hold hot grease. After the grease is frozen, it is easier to dispose of as a solid than as liquid.
On the bottom shelf inside the fridge, you will find some of our beverages, yogurt, and applesauce. The middle shelf holds bread and eggs. Behind the bread, there are some things that need to be thrown out. There is cheese in the meat keeper. Strangely, I hardly ever place any meat in the meat keeper. The top shelf has several things including a bowl of nectarines, some condiments, and some more things to toss out including part of a very large zucchini.
Finally, inside the door, you will find more beverages including wine and several cans of some immunity drink among those plastic bags at the bottom.While writing this, I realize that the fridge really does need cleaned so off I go to clean the refrigerator. Yours is probably already clean so you might like to check out how the other participants keep their food cold. After you are finished, stop by for some pie. We will have coffee and some frozen ready-to-serve (Just Thaw) Banana Creme Pie
As a historical note: Two of the first home refrigerators both appeared in Fort Wayne, Indiana, where, in 1911, General Electric company unveiled a unit invented by a French monk. In 1915 the first "Guardian" refrigerator - a predecessor of the Frigidaire - was assembled in a wash house in a Fort Wayne backyard. Fort Wayne is my home town.
