The Beverage Fridge

All my life, I’ve only had one refrigerator. I am organized, I managed it. Even when holidays came around, pre-made pies, fruit salads, etc., found a spot. Beverages were put in an ice chest for the day and folks could help themselves.

Then I met my husband. I inherited six refrigerators and one meat freezer. In order, they are . . .

1 half-sized fridge built into in the kitchen poolhouse. I never really new it existed until I smelled something out there and discovered one of the kids had put Popsicles in the fridge part rather than the freezer part and they melted.

1 full-sized side-by-side in the poolhouse. Rarely anything in it. We stocked it up with halibut and salmon once we had shipped home from Alaska.

1 full-sized side-by-side in the kitchen. This is a big stainless monster. I like it. Serves me well.

1 sub-zero built-in in the kitchen. This is a great fridge for misc. beverages, fruits and vegetables. Everything stays crisp and cold.

1 mini fridge in the barn. Typically this is unused accept for fishing bait. Worms and junk are forgotten in here. I long stopped going near it.

1 meat freezer in the garage. The last of “Roast” and “Beef” our two cows we raised, are stored in here. Along with a lamb we had butchered. My husband’s many Schwann’s sugar-free Popsicles also reside in here. This fridge is going to have to have a major clean out and organization due to the six lambs we currently have grazing in our pasture . . . and whose final home will be in this freezer.

1 full-sized side-by-side in the garage. The Beverage Fridge. I never thought I’d actually have a beverage fridge. This one houses water, beer and pop. I really don’t need it because I don’t drink beer or pop. But I like water. The freezer section is where I keep leftovers. This fridge is on the fritz and not keeping things as cold as they should be. But do I dare request another fridge? I think one of the other fridges should be moved here and we get rid of one of the others.

Does anyone else have a beverage fridge?
