My friend Alex was going on a vacation and cleaned out her fridge of all of the perishables. They ended up here! We couldn’t believe how much food was in the two shopping bags she brought over! I was wondering why she had so many fruits and vegetables in her fridge right before she was going away when she blurted out that she forgot she was going on vacation and just went shopping as per normal.
