Or, more accurately…
How a package of chicken breasts ended up costing $140.77.
Here’s what happened…
Sunday afternoon I went for the package of chicken breast that I had defrosting in the refrigerator and discovered that the package had leaked all over the shelf.
So I grabbed my trusty bottle of Clorox Clean-up and got to work wiping down the shelf. Which then triggered the following chain of events:
- “What the hell. I might as well do the other shelves.”
- “Well, I might as well clean out the fridge.”
- “Hold old is this container of leftovers?”
- “Guess I forgot about this package of green beans.”
- “Why is there an empty jar of pickles back here?”
- “How many jars of pickles does one family (who doesn’t really even eat pickles) need?”
So after 30 minutes my fridge looked like this.
And a proclamation from my family that there was nothing to eat in the house.
Which there wasn’t.
Which prompted a trip to the grocery store.
My dear husband, trying to score a few points to ensure an evening of uninterrupted football playoffs in front of the big TV, volunteered to take me.
Which meant I came home from the store with this.
So beware the next time you clean your fridge during football playoffs. You could end up with $140 chicken breasts.
