Adventures in the vegetable drawer

In the latest round of housecleaning, I have unearthed rotting vegetables in our refrigerator's vegetable drawer. Who knew that celery could make such a mess, including melting into a murky brown liquid?

So I've thrown out the celery. And the carrots. And the wilted cucumber. And the dessicated cherry tomatoes. And the tainted onions. And various green leafy vegetables now of indeterminate origin.

Miraculously, the Romaine lettuce survived. So I had some of it with my lunch, which was what had driven me to rummage around in the vegetable drawer in the first place.

Oh, and I washed out the vegetable drawer. Of course.

Now I know why you have to burn your food.

ugh, it's the stuff that survives months in the fridge that you should avoid! Covered in chemicals... yuck.

hello, why did you eat the lettuce?!? It's probably plastic, coated with all kinds of bacteria and mold taking a break from the other veg!

no, no, actually i wanted to say...the lettuce ALWAYS survives. someone came over to my house with a head of lettuce (as one will), and she left it behind, and like two weeks later it was still going strong. i just don't know what to do with a head of lettuce, is all, which is why it was sitting around making me feel guilty about wasting food. but you know what?, lettuce is just water masquerading in a green cape at a fancy dress ball.

I suppose at this point I should quiver in abject apology for my sinful ways --- except that I know, with my masterful housekeeping skills, that this scenario will likely repeat itself in the next six months, if not a year. Mwah!
