I am the Grossest Person in the Universe

So today was Clean Out The Fridge Day. I did a recon last night by opening the door and peering in and I didn't think it would be too bad. Maybe 7 containers that needed to be dumped and run through the dishwasher. Manageable.

This afternoon I dove in. I grabbed the containers I had seen last night, dumped them into the trash, rinsed them, and stuck them in the dishwasher. That's when I noticed something at the very back of the fridge.

WAYYYYYYYY at the back of the fridge.

It looked like a saucer covered with foil. 

That's when my memory hit me like a Mack truck and I became very afraid. 

I reached back and grabbed it. I took it over to the trash can. Seeing as we don't have the funds to be throwing out saucers I knew I had to actually deal with what was inside the foil instead of throwing out the entire thing. 

I carefully peeled back the foil to reveal what I had expected. Yep. A log of cranberry sauce. A ONE YEAR OLD log of cranberry sauce. It was in fact leftover from last Thanksgiving.

Amazingly, it didn't smell, and it didn't look that bad. It had a light dusting of mold on it, but nothing gag inducing. It went into the garbage. The saucer got rinsed and put into the dishwasher.

So there you have my confession for the week. 

Have a great Monday.

That's pretty funny! Good thing it wasn't any worse. There's something for you on my blog, not the last entry but the one before that (sorry can't remember the date) but you'll know it when you see it.

I found sour cream dated for April 4. I did not open it.
