How's that for frugal....

April 1st, 2008 at 12:46 pm

After a very fitful nap (#*&% phone and email ping), I got up to make some chicken noodle Cup o' Soup. While the water was boiling for the soup, I stumbled out to the garage to get a Pepsi from the trunk of my car (still from the original 12 pack -- that's how little I drink). I was pleasantly surprised to find it nicely chilled already. No need for ice or anything. Maybe I should unplug the fridge each winter and instead just drive around with all my food in the trunk of the car!

(I think I have a fever and am becoming delirious now....)

    We leave our soda out in the garage about 75% of the year...nice and cool! Not sure how it would do for veggies!?

    Not to mention that sometimes your Pepsi would freeze!

    Carolina beat me to it. Don't leave it in the car year round. If it gets below freezing, the cans get burst and make quite a mess.

    We also keep our soda in the garage and all winter it is nice and cold.

    We had a huge screened porch I was a kid. In winter large pots of cooked food were sometimes kept out there. Some older houses here have a bin built into the exterior wall. If it has an opening to the outside, dairy products could be delivered and sometimes kept there. If there is no opening to the outside, root vegetables were probably kept there. Still I'm all in favor of refrigeration, which has probably saved a lot of lives.
