I’m hoping I’m not the only one out there with this confession….Truth is, I know I’m not the only one, but I doubt anyone else will fess up!
Ideally I’d love to have my fridge cleaned out every two weeks. It’s hard to do when so many other tasks are placed in a more important slot than lowly fridge cleaning. (Hmm, cook dinner or clean the fridge?) It’s been too long since my fridge has been cleaned out. We’ve been shuffling things around, moving stuff, making room, removing things occasionally – but there are far too many UFI’s in there (UFI= unidentifiable food item).
My mother-in-law has been so sweet. When she heard about my foot, and we had the impending storm, she brought over some hurricane supplies, and meals for our family. My husband did the fridge shuffle and made it all fit. Now, the large containers have small amounts in them, and as grocery weekend is approaching, I know I need to clean out the fridge. UGH….I hate cleaning out the fridge. I have the dishwasher running, and figured when it’s done, I’ll clean out the fridge, and stick the yucky containers straight into the dishwasher to clean. No biggie.
Now here’s my confession: Have you ever just looked at a container with UFI in it, and longed to just THROW IT AWAY instead of cleaning it? Huh? Yeah, I’m there. If it’s a cheapie, recycled container, or a “disposable” gladware type container, I’m pitching it. If it’s nicer, I’m going to bite the bullet and clean it. BLECH, I hate this chore!
