Subject: RE: BS: Recipes - what are we eating?
The fan that blows cold air from the freezer into the cooler compartment of the fridge is dead, I've called a repair person who will arrive on Monday. This has gone out before. I've moved as much as possible to a small bar fridge (the larger ones people used in dorms, or put in a wet bar in the house) that I inherited from a friend. I don't use it often, but when I do, it's a lifesaver. Usually around Thanksgiving I shift shelves and put a large stock pot with brine and a turkey in.

I've turned the non-cooled part of the fridge into an "ice box"—literally stuffing bowls of ice and tubs of ice (frozen in the large upright freezer that was replaced a dying freezer last fall). The things that don't really need to be super cold but should be cool are doing okay in there for the time being. And my meals are stuff that is very easy to make and don't require going to the fridge more than once or twice. Grilled cheese sandwich for dinner, etc.
