Cleaning Out the Fridge

One of the many things I accomplished yesterday, was cleaning out the fridge and the cabinets.

Why you ask? I'm not moving for another 3 weeks.

Well, when you are single, not home, and don't cook tends to go bad. I'm talking some of the stuff you all by every time you go to the store, it goes bad in my house.

  • Butter - 1 tub only half used and 1 box of sticks of butter. Expired!
  • Pork chops - Were in the freezer...purchased them back in April.
  • Fajita steak - In the freezer, purchased back in February.
  • Frozen Chicken Breasts - In the freezer, purchased back in February. (full bag)
  • Frozen Chicken Tenderloins - In the freezer, purchased back in April. (full bag)
  • Box of 2 fish fillet I was going to try - never tried them...purchased back in February.
  • Box of Sausage links - tried them...nasty...purchased back in February
  • Jello! Expired!
  • Sliced cheese and sandwich meat - purchased who knows when

    I threw away a few other things that I won't eat between now and when I move. Just to get things cleaned up.

    In my freezer, we now have:

  • 1 Tostinos Pizza
  • 1 box of popsicles
  • 1 box of fudgesicles
  • half a bottle of vodka (which I can hardly look at right now with wanting to ralph)

    In my fridge:

  • 6 bottles of smirnoff ice (see comment above on vodka)
  • 1 bag of grapes
  • 1 package of deli cheese (that doesn't go bad until November, yeah!!
  • 1 bottle of jelly
  • 2 Tupperware containers of leftover Beefaroni (Bou's kids won't eat it, but I will! hehe)
  • 1 huge ass jar of applesauce! 50 oz for 97 cents!! I love applesauce!

    In the cabinets are a couple of cans of soup and some seasonings.

    I want to get rid of all of this before I leave.

    One last thought......Grilled Cheese Sandwiches SUCK without butter!!

    Ooh, yeah. :P

    I don't know what I bother to buy vegetables sometimes. Last time I cleaned out the fridge, I had 3 unopened bags of salad greens, all wilted and brown. Ugh.

    Songstress- you didn't wait long enough, my friend. If you wait longer, it all turns to water. Blech.

    I still don't think Jello goes bad.

    I have science experiments in the back of my fridge.

    BTW, I think if you put mayo on your bread before grilling, it works the same way as butter... which I also don't think truly expires. :)

    I hate to say it, but Bou's right about the lettuce! Eck!!

    Ogre ~ Do you put icing on that?
