Three Things...

refrigeratorI saw the topic for this week's Top Sites Tuesday on Blogdumps and thought, "Hmm...this ought to get interesting!" This week the theme is: Three Things in Your Refrigerator You Can’t Live Without. To be honest, I was tempted to take a picture of my actual refrigerator and post it here but I haven't had the chance (okay, I admit, I've been lazy) to clean it out this summer. I must quite shamefully admit that I just realized that the strangely "fruity" tasting salad dressing I had on my salad two weeks ago had expired in February. Oops!

So as I continue to daydream about what that KISS concert is going to be like when my hubby and I go to see them next month, I am thinking about those three things in my refrigerator I can't live without.

The first thing I must say is the light bulb. LOL! Betcha thought I was going to name something edible. Seriously, if that light bulb goes out (or if my kids decide to play with the trigger button at the door while I'm looking for something inside) I start to worry that the power went out and my food is going to go bad.

The second thing I can't live without is the humidity control switches on the drawer compartments. They are sometimes labeled "freshness controls" on some makes. I think it's the only thing that keeps my fruits and vegetables from rotting too fast. Although I try to feed my family a healthy diet of fresh foods I have a compulsive habit of overbuying these things at times. (Hey, I'm a woman! Let's face it, don't most of us women have an instinctive impluse to shop?).

Finally, the third and last on the list of three things in my refrigerator that I can't live without is FOOD! I can't single out any specific food. I frequently try out different kinds of foods, mainly just for variety. I don't like keeping the same kind of foods in my fridge or in my pantry...although I will keep in stock the essential condiments like ketchup, mustard, mayo, etc. Everything else kind of depends on what looks good, what's in season, and what's on sale (yeah!).

So what's in your fridge?

That's a great post! I wonder what I might find in my refrigerator,

Lisa, I'm sure a lot of people get shocked by what they find in their fridge. I was too embarrassed to show what was actually in mine!
