RandomAnthony | 14536 comments Ok, assume like, at many offices, TC has a refrigerator in a nondescript lounge. We all put our lunches and whatever in there. What's in the refrigerator? What are the kitchen rules?

I've got diet cokes in the door. You touch them, you die.

Rebecca White (rebecca_white) | 1028 comments I'd have a big tub of plain yogurt in there all the time, but I wouldn't always finish it before it would go bad. Most days I'd have either a salad or leftover soup/stew for lunch.

I took one of your diet cokes... THAT's for many years of you touching my drink. :)

Cynthia Paschen | 7087 comments You can have the diet coke. Just don't bother my homemade iced tea with fresh mint.

A bottle of hot sauce, some yogurt and green tea.

It needs to be cleaned out/checked once a month.

I think Jim just volunteered to clean the fridge! Yay Jim!

Just for that, I might have to swipe another.

janine | 7715 comments i'll bring in a jar of peanut butter too, my beloved sprinkles and good ripe cheese.


message 12: by ms.petra (new)

ms.petra (mspetra) fruit, grilled chicken, coke zero, and for my sweet tooth a box of "forget the peanuts Drumsticks"


message 13: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) Why do people put peanut butter in the fridge?


message 14: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) But ....

mine never has oily muck. mine is perfect.

i don't keep my peanut butter in the fridge, but i don't think there's a TC pantry, or a TC desk drawer.

I want banana's but they don't go in the fridge.

Sarah | 13815 comments Label your food, people. And preferably date it. With this many people using the fridge we're going to end up with some serious science experiments.


message 18: by [deleted user] (new)

I think that is why I will be cleaning it monthly.


message 19: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) In my building they empty it every Friday. I think it's a good policy.


message 20: by Heidi (new)

Heidi (heidihooo) | 10825 comments I just threw out some whole wheat English muffins - they had to be 4 months old. Oddly enough, they didn't have anything growing on them. I'm curious to know how THAT happened.

Heidi (heidihooo) | 10825 comments Barb wrote: "Oh there was probably mold there ... it was just snuggled into the little holes, ready to surprise anyone who dared to try to eat one."

They didn't smell bad, either.


message 22: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) That would serve as excellent duck/goose/swan food for when we walk in the park.


message 23: by Sarah (new)

Sarah | 13815 comments I'm mad because my jam went moldy and I only bought it a couple of weeks ago. I bought it from the nice lady at the farmer's market who makes her own jam. I know fresh things go bad faster, but it wasn't a large jar and I can only eat so much. :(
Is it because I got the "just fruit" kind with no sugar added? Does the sugar help preserve it?


message 24: by Kevin (new)

Kevin  (ksprink) | 11469 comments i once had a lovely 7-up fern growing in my room when i was in high school


message 25: by Phoenix (new)

Phoenix (phoenixapb) | 1619 comments Curry chicken salad, club crackers, green tea with mint and honey, Folders simply smooth coffee, and french vanilla coffee creamer.

Uh kevin...what's a 7 up fern?


message 26: by Kevin (new)

Kevin  (ksprink) | 11469 comments a glass of 7-up you leave under your bed and it develops into a mold and then into a fern-like growth


message 27: by Sarah (new)

Sarah | 13815 comments I think "what was the grossest mold you ever saw" might make a great thread.

Yes I do believe sugar's a preservative. and Pectin. And you know, preservatives. Which I'm pretty sure those farmer's market ladies avoid.

I was mad when I stood around the kitchen chopping stuff for salsa once, and 3 days later the jars in the fridge were moldy. Screw it, now I just buy it at the store.


Jackie "the Librarian" | 8993 comments The yogurt I didn't get around to eating today with my lunch after all, and some of that boxed soup.

The butternut squash kind from Trader Joe's is pretty good, especially if you add some cinnamon and cloves, and a little of Barb's cream.


message 30: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) I sure wish we had a Trader Joe's here.


message 31: by Sarah (new)

Sarah | 13815 comments In the fridge, or TC, or where you are?


message 32: by Félix (new)

Félix (habitseven) Uh ... where I am.


Jackie "the Librarian" | 8993 comments Oh, hey, look! Diet Coke! :)


message 34: by Kevin (new)

Kevin  (ksprink) | 11469 comments i'm putting a big bag of peanut M&M's in the freezer. feel free...


Jackie "the Librarian" | 8993 comments :::adds a six-pack of pear cider for sharing later in the evening, grabs a handful of peanut M&Ms from the freezer:::

Thanks, Kevin!

Carol | 1679 comments I wonder if fizzy skittles will activate after freezing? I'm going to try it! TC and RW

Phil | 11628 comments I put in a catfood sandwich, cleverly disguised as tuna.

Are you okay there?

Phil | 11628 comments Hehehe. Got one!

Now to plant the brownies made with Ex-Lax......

::begins baking::


message 41: by ms.petra (new)

ms.petra (mspetra) if you do that once, people seem to leave your food alone in the future. If you add other ingredients to the brownies, they will come back for more. :)

Nondairy creamer. I'll probably drink a couple of RA's diet cokes and blame it on the cleaning staff.

Although, don't do this in real life, at least if you work on Wall Street...a friend of mine was temping there many years ago and drank one of the executives' bottles of Evian. He asked her if she'd taken it and she said no but they had her on hidden camera...

RandomAnthony | 14536 comments writes "RA" all over his diet cokes with permanent marker


message 44: by [deleted user] (new)

Hmmmm. Just had a quick look in the fridge. Darn, no diet coke left.


message 45: by janine (new)

janine | 7715 comments i'll have some diet cokes by this fancy new 'RA' brand.


message 46: by [deleted user] (new)

Oh really is that what they were? I didn't recognise them with the new label. I'll have one too.

The cleaning staff has no idea what this means.
