Refrigerator Adventure

April 26, 2011

Have you ever opened a refrigerator, just to be hit the smell of rotting, molding food? Well I have. And let me tell you, it has to be one the most unpleasant things in the world.  Well this happened to me in our last week in the kitchen before spring break (which was wonderful by the way, I’m already ready for summer!) and well, we had to do something about it. I wanna say it was awful cleaning out the refrigerator, but well, it was actually kind of fun…

We started by cleaning out all of the stuff that didn’t belong to us. You see, we have a bit of a problem with some of our teachers leaving their food in our fridge, even though there’s a sign specifically saying “For Cooking Class Only” INSIDE of the refrigerator. They have to see it, they must.  Maybe they find it to inconvenient to walk an extra 15 feet and put their cokes and tupperwares of leftovers in the teacher fridge right down the hall. I don’t know, but regardless, its very annoying, so we moved it. And if they can’t find it…. I won’t even feel bad, because now its exactly where its supposed to be.

After we got that taken care of, we got onto the fun part. There was a surprising amount of food that had either gone bad or would be going bad within the next few days, and we had to get rid of it. There were strawberries growing a white fuzz, molding alfredo pasta, and putrid orange juice alongside old yogurt, ancient cream, and some aging salad mix. Now disposing of all this was the fun part. We couldn’t just put it in the trash because it REAKED, so we turned to our trusty friend, the garbage disposal.  For those of you that haven’t had the pleasure of using a garbage disposal (I feel like that isn’t many, but I could be wrong) I highly recommend it.  There’s something surprisingly pleasing about hearing you’re old rotten food get ground up to bits… and now we have a clean fridge!! Its a win-win for the Woodlawn Kitchen.

Alfredo, Wilted Salad, and OJ about to meet their demise.
