Goodbye, Cold Friend

deadfridge2010_06

The refrig had a sudden attack and died. No warning. No sounds. Just woke up one morning to water on the floor.

This happened last Thursday. Of all the food items I lost, I'm sad about the two cartons of mascarpone cream that I was going to use to make frosting. Oh well, a big trip to Trader Joe's can fix that problem.

Just another reminder to eat your ice cream first.

A new fridge should arrive Wednesday so I'm out for this week's TWD (sorry, Pink Stripes) but hope to fill my fridge with the essentials: butter, cream, buttermilk, milk, butter, cream cheese, butter, and ice cream. Oh yeah, maybe some veggies too. ;)
Pin It!

Ugghh, sorry to hear that. Same thing happened to me about 6-8 months ago. Of course they can never have the one you want "in stock" so you can take it right home with you!

I'm sorry to hear about the death of your fridge! I wish mine would do the same thing, though, because it's so old, haha. Happy food shopping for your new fridge!

Sad :( A good reminder to eat ice cream first, though! So that's the silver lining :-P

It's always sad when you lose a large appliance but there is something nice about starting over with a nice, clean refrigerator. Have fun filling it and I can't wait to see your mascarpone frosting!

So sad! Ours refrigerator did that same thing once and the saddest thing was losing all the breast milk I had stored for when I returned to work. Sorry if that's gross on a food blog . . . but that's what babies eat!
