Before you do your Thanksgiving shopping, why not give the inside of your refrigerator a thorough cleaning? That way you can get all the old stuff gone and make room for that brining turkey, plus it will be all pretty and shiny when relatives and friends poke their heads in. 🙂
I just did this today and it felt great, except for the sad reminder of how much food didn’t get eaten before it went bad. Not a ton, but it’s still a waste. It’s always something to work on.
