I'm currently working on cleaning out the fridge, in every sense of the word.
It's being done a bit at a time as the alarm on the door annoyingly, but quite rightly goes off if I leave the fridge open too long and the temperature rises, but also because we are still eating our way through the excess of Christmas foods. The things with short dates were prepped and packaged for the freezer as you saw in previous posts but things with long dates have been added to meals over the past week or so as there is now no room in the freezer.
But I'm starting to see shelf surfaces now and boy is it a relief!!
As I worked my way through emptying and cleaning the lower shelf and the door pockets/shelves yesterday I came across all this chocolate. Now this is an obvious sign that we are officially ALL GROWED UP 😊
Even a couple of years ago chocolate would never have lasted halfway into January.
A box of rather tasty Lindt chocolate balls ... they must have a proper name but having chucked the box away I cannot for the life of me think of it ... were split into two portions and Alan had one of the bags at the cinema last night while we watched Stan and Ollie. The other one will most likely be saved until the next time we go.
Everything else has gone back into the fridge in the little door compartment with the lid and will be eaten as and when the fancy comes over us.
Which as ... we is now all growed up ... might take a while.
