You need to tidy your fridge pal, you can’t just keep starting threads at the problem.

No, it’s just that between the rabbit food and jars of condiments there’s not much room for what we actually eat.

Is it possible to backdate an entry or must it be from this date onwards?

Impressive / terrible.

Something like that once happened to me - I was making bread using a breadmaker, and the handle of the tin (or whatever you call it) broke. Flour, water, butter everywhere. I had to replace our blinds in the end.

  • date: last weekend
  • item: sriracha bottle
  • mess rating: 1/10 a small smear. More interesting was the reason: it was too far away from the fulcrum to withstand an aggressive opening of the door and was a victim of its own inertia

No idea what a crumpet was doing in the fridge but I’m glad there was no mess.
