Day 8 of The Minimalist’s Game had me poking around my refrigerator to see if there was anything that needed to go.
- A bottle of “Lars” Swedish-style mustard, purchased in Andersonville (aka “Little Sweden”) in Chicago back in 2007. Does mustard go bad? In any case, I didn’t want to find out.
A thin jar filled with sauerkraut of an unknown vintage. As the last pack of sauerkraut I purchased was at the beginning of summer, I am sure that this one is much older. Gross.
A jar of Teriyaki-Ginger sauce, which is some of the worst marinade/dipping sauce I’ve had. More yaki than yummy
A can of cat food from when my sister last visited in…July? I have saved the top because she wants it back; it’s a reusable plastic lid.
A tub of miso that is of unknown age. Probably from the Spring.
Two boxes of baking soda to de-stink the refrigerator. They have been there for a loooong time. I didn’t even realize they were there.
Two Korean yogurt drinks, so old that the liquid has de-emulsified. I didn’t even know that was possible.
p>I actually made some soup with the miso (it smelled OK) and remembered this was the miso I didn’t like. A little too sweet for my taste.
