Really bad produce... How (and why) to Clean your Refrigerator...
Yes!!!! That icky bag of, what used to be, lettuce was in MY refrigerator!!! And do you know when I discovered it? I discovered it when we had a dear friend over for dinner!!! She was in the kitchen with me, helping with the meal. I reached into the vegetable crisper to pull out some newly purchased romaine lettuce when, lo and behold, I pulled out this disgusting bag of very old lettuce!!!!! I had to laugh to cover my embarrassment!!! It was horrible!! And, to make matters worse, I had two very old tomatoes in there, too!! They were, well, horribly nasty!!!
Hence, this post.
Ladies, please, Please, PLEASE go through your refrigerator WEEKLY and discard any old produce. Also, please check all of your leftover containers to make sure you aren't growing any penicillin in there (yes, I've been guilty of that before, as well). I don't want anyone to be as astonished as I was at the discovery of this repulsive find. So, head to your refrigerators today and make sure everything is fresh!!!
Also, while you are in the refrigerator, you may as well clean it. Clean it, as in use soap and water and wash it out. Never done that before? You're in luck! I happened upon this site just yesterday and the author gives clear steps to clean it in a flash!
Let's all get our refrigerators in top shape with NO old veggies inside!!!
