One of my favorite things about writing a blog is sharing brands I love and believe in. I don’t like to bash or do negative reviews, so I won’t go into detail about how badly Home Depot dropped the ball on my refrigerator order.
I had a beautiful new LG fridge picked out – it was big (25 cu ft) , and shiny, with a freezer on the bottom and lovely French doors – and it made it all the way into my house before the delivery guys broke it.
But alas, it is not mine, nor will it ever be. [cue boos.]
So, the hubs and I are taking the little man out shopping tonight for lots of little odds and ends, and we’re going to hit up Lowe’s for a new fridge while we’re at it. Sadly, they don’t sell my coveted LG, but I’m sure I’ll find something I love just as much. I hope it doesn’t take too long to get it – I’ve been fridgeless for almost a whole month! I can’t wait to finally start cooking in my new pad!
It seems like forever since we’ve had a good meal. Sandwiches, pizza, pasta, veggies from the Chinese place. I’ve been doing my best to make good choices and stick with organics, but I still feel sluggish and weird (and broke! This has been expensive!)
I must admit, however, that the challenge of cooking without refrigeration has kept me on my creative toes. Last night, we had brown rice with a can of Eden beans, a jar of organic salsa, some hot sauce and a chopped avocado. Not half bad, if I do say so myself!
I’m trying not to complain too much. After all, refrigerators are a relatively new convenience, right? My foremothers did it with style, so I can surely survive a month. And after being stranded during the flood, and succumbing to a salami sandwich from the local gas station, it’s all up from here!
As much as it hurts, my dryer has bit the dust, too. So it looks like we may be shopping for several appliances today. (Just as soon as I can find a coupon code , specifically Best Buy coupon codes ! Haha…) But the ones that came with our house were old and inefficient, so I’ll be glad to get my Energystar on again! (It’s times like this when I wish this little blog were just a bit bigger, so I could pitch some of those appliance people out there! …hello? anyone listening?)
You know what this all means, right? New recipes! Soon! I can’t wait. I’m just itchin’ to get into the kitchen. Especially since my belated birthday gift finally arrived…details soon!
What are you doing with your Saturday?
What modern convenience could you NEVER live without? Which would be easy to give up?
