How to Get a New Fridge in Three Easy Steps

This is the freezer, sans frozen grapes for our road trip, the frozen meals I take to work, and my adventure in babyfood making.

1) Buy too much for your munchkin sized freezer, so that every time your husband opens it, weird things fall all over the place. All the food in this picture? Fit in a cooler that would hold 18 cans. That’s how small this freezer was.

These are the beer drawers. Also home to wilted produce, rice flour and other oddities..

2) Put his favorite items in the back of the fridge, requiring him to send out a search party for queso, since the light hasn’t worked since 2008. Also, put the beer in the opaque drawers on the bottom of the fridge. You know–the drawers where everything drips into, and the drawers where wilted cilantro goes to die.

3) Eventually, just refuse to go grocery shopping until a new fridge arrives. I announced this last night at dinner.

We have more condiment bottles than anything else right now. Each one has about 1/2 inch of product left in the bottom.

This afternoon, this arrived. If you need me, I’ll be alphabetizing my condiments and making little beds for my produce in my new food hotel.

It is so shiny and new, it reflects!

  1. Whoo hoo! Very exciting stuff! And look how nicely it fits into the allotted refrigerator spot in the kitchen! Has that boy pulled himself up on it to admire his reflection yet?

  2. I know we talked about it, but I hardly dared to hope your dream would come true.

    I cannot believe you can see yourself so clearly now!!!

    Tell me, what’s her name? She’s a beaut! Congratulations on the new addition. If you ever sell this place and move, Ms. Fridge must move with you.

    Give her a big kiss for me. NO DON”T. You’ll have to buff her again…

  3. Oh what a gorgeous new fridge! I think I am jealous. Hehehe, I was laughing about your description of the drawers being a place where wilted cilantro goes to die.

  4. It is so bee-YOU-ti-ful!!!! (And is it a sign of old age if I’m rhapsodizing about a refrigerator? Who cares… it really IS nice. I’m a tad green. But my produce is not – cuz it’s wilted and brown.)

  5. Gorgeous! I busted a gut when you mentioned alphabetizing your condiments and making beds for your produce… that is exactly what I would be doing. And then I would bask in the shine off that beautiful door!

  6. OMG I’m in love with your fridge! So you’re saying all I have to do is refuse to shop til I get a new fridge?!? Somehow I don’t think that will work, lol he’ll probably end doing the shopping himself!
