Cleaning Out the Fridge

Today's the first day of the rest of my healthy life. And I started it by cleaning out my fridge.

I'm not sure how other people do this, but it took my teenager and me about an hour and a half to dump two kitchen trashbags full of mustard, olives, ketchup, sweet pickles, salad dressings, artichoke hearts and the like. We had to debate every entry. I am truly a cheapskate.

Our music track was The Clash: Should I Stay or Should I Go?

Ketchup full of high-fructose corn syrup was easy. But cheese? And a carton of eggs? Cheese! How do you throw away cheese?

Answer: You don't. You give it to a friend...which makes me kind of a frenemy, right?

Well, she can join my gym in 90 days and pass the cheese to someone else, if she wants. And take me on a cruise!
