See I have this tiny problem. I buy
and alas... he is probably right. sigh
However, when the holiday season approaches...I NEED the extra space that having an extra frig would give me. I mean you can't find anything in our frig when it is full of a turkey and all the trimmings.
BUT we live in Colorado. And in Colorado, most years it gets darned right cold around the holidays. Which means my garage is as cold as a walk in refrigerator! ding! ding! ding! ding! ding!
So in years past and this year too, I've used my garage to store all the extra food we have. And it is awesome! This year I used the garage to cool down my turkey brine quickly by setting the pot directly on the concrete. I don't think that the frig could have done that. I also am able to put our turkey in the garage while it sits in the brine. I could never fit it in the frig.
And this year, instead of filling up the frig with still warm food (and possibly spoiling the milk) I put all the left-overs in the garage! Hubby was so happy about this...as he doesn't like spoiled milk for his cereal.
I suggested that we put some shelves in the garage for me to put the food on...and hubby agreed! (course, who knows how long it will be before I can actually get my shelves.) but one day I will have shelves in the garage for extra food storage!
and now I've just come up with an idea for what to get hubby for Christmas! woot! He is getting shelves for the garage! he he
