So, we moved on April 16th. Today, July 9th, I was looking for a glass pitcher that had gone missing in the move. After eliminating every other location that a glass pitcher could possibly be, I determined that it had to be in the top cabinet over the refrigerator. I, being rather”vertically challenged,” am unable to reach this cabinet. And there was a crockpot on top of the fridge, in the way. So I called my tall and handsome husband to reach it for me.
Unbeknownst to us (or maybe “beknownst” for a few minutes, but immediately forgotten), someone had helpfully packed kitchen things in the crockpot back in April.
Unfortunately, these were not kitchen implements — they were edible things.
WERE edibles. Some lemons (which, amazingly, still look fine), a loaf of bread (not so fine, unless you like your bread green and furry), and some plastic bag of produce that is now unidentifiable. I couldn’t bear to look further to see if there was anything else.
So there may be a valid and pressing reason to clean the top of your fridge. You may find something that you’ve been missing…..
And while we’re on the topic of Crockpots, I want to know: If I haven’t used my Crockpot since before November 2009, should I allow it to occupy valuable storage space, or should it pass to my younger brother? Is there any pressing reason that I might need it — some indispensable dish that can’t cook in a Corningware in the oven? I need opinions.
