Antiques in the fridge....

I have a meat drawer in my fridge, where I keep cheese and lunchmeat. In addition to a couple of VERY old hot dogs and some undistinguishable moldy stuff, I threw away my anchovy paste, which I've had for way over ten years.
Do you have any antiques in your refrigerator?

I'm not looking. I don't want to know. If I knew, then I would have to do something about it. No thanks. I'd rather be on this forum.

Probably. Don't know what, if anything, for sure without looking.

We sometimes have some cheese with a fuzzy green beard. Leftovers are more often aged to retirement.

One of my brothers affectionately calls these items U.F.O.s - unidentified food objects. Yep, yep, yeppers. We all have 'em.

I've got a nice size sliver of parmigiano cheese that is rock hard--just can't bear to throw it away. I might need it .

Absolutely...it would be great as part of a coating for some fried food or part of a topping for a casserole.

Or toss it in the freezer. Next time you make a vegetable beef soup or a Minestrone toss it in there! Well, as long as it's a small amount. If it's a larger amount still freeze it and grate as needed.

My antiques tend to be more along the sauce and condiment line.
Got some shrimp paste in there I am scared to open....

My mother's freezer was a protected archaeological site, or should have been.
Guess that keeps me fairly current on leftovers anyway.
