If you don’t hear from me for a few days, don’t fret! Our refrigerator decided to die on us a few days ago, and our new one isn’t going to be delivered until sometime Friday. Yep, I open my freezer one morning and my ice cream has leaked through the carton and melted into a little puddle. Our milk is warm, and we have water in our ice cube trays..
You know what that means: no fridge = no food = no cooking = no posts! Sad, I know. I was just as sad when I realized we had to toss ALL of our food that was in the freezer and fridge (Brian didn’t want to take any chances). This included a few essential everyday supplies – milk, coffee creamer, eggs, yogurt, ICE CREAM… Oh man, it was a sad, sad day. All our groceries filled two and a half large kitchen garbage bags, and they’re currently residing in a little grocery cemetery at the end of our driveway. Not only do we not have any milk to drink, I also can’t make coffee because I don’t have any creamer! You have no idea how good a large cold glass of milk sounds right now.
You really don’t realize how much you rely on your refrigerator until you don’t have one anymore! How did people survive back in the day before fridges were even invented?!
On the brighter side of things, since we were already planning on doing some major kitchen renovation/upgrades next spring and getting new appliances were one thing on our list, we decided to buy a new stove/range while we were at it too. I think I might be more excited about this new oven I’m getting than the refrigerator – it’s a convection oven! Apparently it creates restaurant-quality desserts… well I guess I’ll just have to make something in it to try it out :)
I’ll be back when I finally get some fresh groceries in my new fridge! Until then, stay warm and enjoy the crisp fall weather before the snow falls!
