oh, ugh.

Every now and then, I go through the fridge and get rid of stuff that has gone off.

Apparently, this time I waited too long.

Things I found in the fridge tonight:

  • two bunches of celery, one rubbery, the other mummified

  • a tub of hummus with an inch thick layer of something clear, yellow, thick and sticky on the outside of the lid

  • a jar of pickles with the lid only half screwed on

  • a bag of what was once carrots,gone black, sitting in 2 inches of black slime in the crisper drawer

  • a bag of grapes, 80% of which were now raisins

  • several containers of leftovers turned colours food should never be

  • some perfectly intact hot sauce I made a couple years ago

  • something dark and leathery in an unsealed package labelled sliced turkey

  • a dozen eggs in perfect condition, but poorly balanced on the shelf. I know have 5 eggs in a ziploc.

I should go back and scrub the shelves, but I am Done for the night.

Blick. I am squeamish but incurably curious. Serves me right.

The lj-cut was like a dare...

Thank you. Thank you for sharing the snuff film version of food pr0n.

I feel very very dirty, a little nauseous, and very satisfied.

Obviously you are suppose to store all food purchases in hot sauce in the future. This will ensure their long term viability for when you decide to use them.

I think residents with less spice tolerance than I would complain about that. :)

Yes, yes I would.

I laughed out loud at this post :) thanks for sharing!

Cleaning the fridge is on my list for sometime. *g*

Aw man, I thought you were posting pics!

Somehow, that never occurred to me.

I'm losing it.

You may have completely cured me of any interest I might have had in eating carrots. Ew.

But on the other hand, the pickles are still *probably* okay to eat, so the world is still ok.

After some consultation, our current theory is that the sticky yellow goo on the hummus container was half-dried pickle juice.

I hate pickles. :)

Sodium and vinegar make me a happy camper, so pickles (and olives - yum!!) are a major treat food for me.

So don't worry. I will make the sacrifice and devour your fair share of the world's pickled objects so you don't have to!

See, olives are fine, since they're pickled in brine rather than vinegar. I just have a low tolerance for vinegar.

Of course, adding gin to the olives usually helps. :)

Pics would have been scary. If you'd found a smell transport protocol, and posted scent-images of these things, that would have been VERY bad.

I believe I will be embarking on a similar odyssey this weekend... *Braces self, but also feels less alone and ashamed*
