What goes in your fridge? My First Post!

Hey all… here’s a question…

Anything questionable that you keep in your fridge? For example, my mom keeps cookies in hers, but a lot of other people don’t. Same thing with bread, jelly, peanut butter, etc etc etc…

So, what gets frozen in your home?

I’m Amy by the way, and I’m a SDMBaholic.

And I’m single, gay, and looking!

I keep salsa and chocolate in the fridge, I hate partly-melted chocolate.

Ketchup. Catsup. Whatever. And mustard.

I don’t think it needs to be there, but it’s something my mom always did.

Hubby put peanut butter in the fridge the other night, but that’s cuz he was a bit, ahem, loaded. Found the phone in there once too.

My mom always put anything that could get bugs in it…flour, sugar, cereal, etc. I don’t know why, I guess it was passed down from her mom because they lived in the country. I do the same thing, just out of habit.
I keep the peanut butter in the fridge because I hate when it gets that oily taste.

Welcome,** NotWithoutRage**!

I always keep peanut butter in the fridge, to keep the oil in it from going rancid.

My absent-minded hubby once put the T.V. remote in the fridge. I have also found his car keys in there.:slight_smile:

I keep bread, oyster sauce, ketchup, potatoes, jelly and sriracha sauce in the fridge. PB stays out.

Hi, NWR, and welcome! You’re ours now; free time as you knew it will now be spent here…it’s a mind-control thing.

I do the same thing w/ flour, baking mix, etc. Ultress. (Not rice or pasta, though.) Keeps 'em fresher.

Definitely nut butters, i.e. peanut butter and tahini. Gotta stir them a bit more, but it keeps them going rancid.

During his photography phase my Ex (boo, hiss) kept bulk film in the fridge. Got all pissy when food “got in the way”. He also went through an antique radio phase, and one of those would take up residence in the fridge now and then.
As he explained it, blippy problems–on again off again–would get “stuck” when exposed to cold, then they could be fixed. (The blippy part is my translation.)

I don’t drink it often, but I keep vodka in the freezer. And pesto cubes (w/o the cheese; it freezes better.) I make big batches during summer when the basil is growing like crazy, freeze it in ice cube trays then pop the cubes into a freezer bag. I love pesto, but it’s ridiculously, obscenely expensive to buy in stores. Gotta admit the bags of weird green cubes don’t look exactly appetizing in the freezer, though.


I keep my coffee in the fridge. I’m not sure if that’s wierd or not.

I have this cup that I keep in the freezer. It’s this cool contraption that has water in it - in the shell of the cup itself, you follow? You freeze the water inside and it keeps your drinks cold without ice cubes (I hate ice in my drinks).

And welcome aboard NotWithoutRage.

Yeah, what’s the deal with coffee in the fridge?

(Crass midwesterner pauses while ground shakes from coastal posters simultaneously fainting in horror. thud, thud, thud) I drink the stuff, even grind my own beans–cute little grinder gizmo Christmas gift–but does this make enough difference to bother?

P.S. Take this the right way, okay, Jack, but I think I have cup envy! That sounds great! Remember where you got it by any chance?

Personally, I store chocolate bars in the fridge. Nothing I enjoy more than chilled Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups. I also have been known to keep Doritos in there; it seems to bring out the flavor. Only do this if I don’t polish off the entire bag in one sitting.

It was a Christmas present from my aunt. I have no idea where she got it. But if you feel like playing detective I can give you this clue: it has a Harley Davidson logo on it.

Is your aunt registered here? If not, something tells me she’d fit right in.

Off to prowl the biker shops…purely for research purposes, of course…

Live brine shrimp (sea monkeys!) for my tropical fish.

Milky Way and Three Musketeers candy bars.
And a copy of my birth certificate.

Deodorant. For those minty-fresh pits. :smiley:

Fresh ginger in the freezer, keeps forever & grates easily.

Dismembered body parts. What can I say. Sometimes people just irritate me, you know?

Just the normal stuff…jelly, milk, salad dressing, mayo…stuff that spoils.

Cold packs (five for lunch boxes and one for boo-boos), coffee and Reese’s Peanut Butter cups are in the freezer, along with two cups like Jack Batty’s.

Peanut Butter and bread do not reside in the fridge at my house. Neither one lasts long enough to go bad, anyway.
I also found the remote in the fridge once…and it was me who left it there. I went to get a snack, came back and the TV remote was gone. I looked all over, pulled all the cushions off the sofa and loveseat, could NOT figure out where it was, so I used the VCR-Universal remote. Later I went to get more milk, and lo and behold…there was the TV remote, right next to the milk!!

Lets see, at my house, cereal, oil, PB, Jelly, crackers, cookies, and oil are all kept in the fridge. Nuts, and grated cheese are kept in the freezer.
