Fridge Space


My fridge space alternates

Between

Double-stacked Tupperware containers containing I-can't-remember-what, but it must be good because I saved it goodies, Styrofoam and plastic takeout holders with leftovers of last weekend's dinner out, green fuzzy science projects in saran covered bowls, Corning ware dishes with mystery meat in maybe gravy and remnants of what looks like stew, opened jars of condiments, jams and jellies ranging from full to one tablespoon left if you scrape the bottom carefully, seven-layer dip that can't be used because we have no chips, oranges and apples jockeying for in-between space amongst the foregoing because the veggie bins are full, and

Where the heck can I put the new groceries

Stuffed.

To

Shrivelled apple, desiccated green onion and limp carrot in bin, half carton of skim milk, slice of week-old dry mushroom pizza, and

There's nothing to eat

Barren.

wonderfully done. Personally, I rarely have the "barren" problem, but no matter the lack of space there never seems to be anything to eat.

This sounds like a case of too much being too little :-)

Ha! my fridge has had times like this too. Sorry I forgot to 'translate' my fridge. Rocket is aragula, I believe. Aubergine is eggplant, Courgette is zuchini.
I enjoyed this glimpse!

Ahh yes, I unfortunately understand!

What perfect descriptions of both "states of fridge!" I know, because I've seen them both in person. ;o) Great job!

Amazing, how a fridge can be so full and there's nothing fit to eat. Good post!
