Show and Tell*

It's the long-awaited return of Show and Tell: My Refrigerator.
If you' like to play along, post a photo of your fridge (which is, hopefully, as embarrassing as mine) and let Crazy Mom know.
She'll post links or photos or something (clearly, I am not remembering how this works) and we'll all point and stare and laugh.
Then (I think) someone nominates what they'd like the next Show and Tell to be and we move on to THAT.

Here is my fridge:


Yes. It is like the monolith from 2001: A Space Odyssey. Yes, we bow down before it. No, it does not function terribly well and it is covered with fingerprints. That paper taped to the front is the publisher's obit notice for J.D. Salinger, who died last week.

I keep picturing all these little kids playing some game in this big field of rye and all. Thousands of little kids, and nobody's around — nobody big, I mean — except me. And I'm standing on the edge of some crazy cliff. What I have to do, I have to catch everybody if they start to go over the cliff — I mean if they're running and they don't look where they're going I have to come out from somewhere and catch them. That's all I'd do all day. I'd just be the catcher in the rye and all. I know it's crazy, but that's the only thing I'd really like to be.

Youngest has just finished Catcher In The Rye - all three boys read it and brought their own take to it, but it was Middle who was most touched by it. And it was Middle who prompted me to take that paper down from the fridge...he reminded me how very sad the book is.

But I've digressed, haven't I. You want to see INSIDE the fridge, don't you.


Such a mess.
Condiments on the top shelves, with a bottle of Bailey's I bought for Oldest. Gosh, I'm noticing so much DAIRY. And no wine? I must have taken this shot early in the morning!


Ah! There it is! Right next to the organic milk.
Have at it, folks.
I'm on my way over to see everyone else's.

*Oh! Look! The Fridge Fetish group has contacted me!

OK, I found your blog thru Crazy Mom Tats! blog and I'm sitting at my desk reading through the posts and laughing so hard I'm crying. I hope no one comes in with a major problem asking for help because they'll probably find me on the floor laughing uncontrollably.

You and Crazy Mom are hilarious. Thanks for sharing your innermost thoughts with the rest of us in such a unique and fun way.

I have fridge envy.

Yours is much cleaner (and nicer) than mine.

I have replenished my milk supply and gotten more of the Mrs. Kinser's Chunky Chicken Salad.

I covet your fridge. Mine is a 1976 vintage Whirlpool in that all-time favorite, harvest gold, complete with NO ice maker. Someday the side-by-side that currently resides in the garage will grace my kitchen. Until then, color me green.

But we DO buy the same brand of mayonnaise.
Hood! We don't have Hood products in FL.

We have Cape Cod guests. Our top shelf is 98% beer.

I was hoping for a peek into the cheese drawer.

I would never in a million years post a picture of my refrigerator's inside until I had cleaned it out because it is a disgrace.

Bailey's is nice to have on hand for a hot toddy with coffee. i Never thought about keeping mine in the fridge.

I agree with Bunny. How does Oldest enjoy his? Hot chocolate, coffee, milkshakes? Rihjt on Oldest, I'm liking that kid more and more! Ever try the coffee flavored Baileys?

I will NOT be posting a photo of the inside of my fridge because it is so empty and tidy that it makes me sad. I prefer it when stuff falls out when you open the door because that means everyone is at home.

How appropriate considering our very recent fridge purchase.

That thing is enormous. My god. I had no idea, and I've SEEN pictures of your kitchen before this. Wow.

I would have figured that you'd have at least a couple of gallons of milk in there, the big jug kind, with all of those boys of yours. But maybe they are just not big milk drinkers. Too busy off being creative and hanging with hot firefighters.
