My least favorite holiday tradition ...

The cleaning of the fridge in anticipation of Thanksgiving leftovers.  Seriously, what the hell was I thinking?  A container with about 3 tablespoons of leftover spaghetti sauce and enough different blocks of cheese to harden our arteries for the rest of our lives.  Not to mention the last of the apples from apple season that I really thought I was going to make something with!

But, it is all done and filled with Thanksgiving goodies.  I can hardly wait to eat leftovers on Friday while watching a 12 hour marathon of Law & Order (or some other similar show) while putting up the tree.  I swear it's going to be decorated differently this year!  Now, all I need is some good ideas.  So, here is some inspiration taken at Dave's Christmas Tree Shop this morning.  (taken with my crummy phone)


  1. My fridge gets the same way. Several containers of only a few spoonfuls. I try to clean it out the night before we go grocery shopping every month. It makes it so much easier. lol.

    Law & order & tree decorating... sounds like my holiday tradition. :]

  2. Eleanor came up with a neat trick, and you can use it, too when the kid goes off to college: we had Emily bring her dorm refrigerator home with her:) The turkey won't fit in it, but we were able to move other things in there to make Tom more comfortable in the fridge proper.
