In America and especially in Texas, houses are big and kitchens are huge. In my huge kitchen is a giant refrigerator. It holds an amazing amount of food which iswinderful most of the time. However, there are two sides to every coin, and this huge refrigerator is terrifying when it needs to be cleaned out. Looking two rows behind what you have been treated as the last row for two weeks can be down right scary. The smells alone can make you run for the hills.
Today was that day for me. I had to clean out my Texas sized refrigerator. I survived to write about it, but why, why do I wait so long?? I day dream of making sure I clean it out each week but it never happens. I really am thankful for this wonderful appliance that makes my kitchen more beautiful, but today I understand the beauty of simplicity and not having such a large fridge that can be easy to neglect.
Not to worry though. There was minimal gagging and my fridge now looks beautiful...at least for a short while.
This long weekend for my American readers may be the perfect opportunity for you to get that fridge clean! Happy Labor Day weekend.
