A Foodie's Worst Nightmare

We came home from a 10 day vacation to find our fridge broken! Everything inside it had spoiled! I'm talking: half and half, cream cheese, juice- the works! If you've never had this happen before, trust me when I say that it really is a Foodie's worst nightmare.

I was instantly frantic and started to panic. I mean, what's a Food Blogger going to do without a fridge? Seriously! Think about the ramifications here! There's literally nothing I could do without it. I mean, I'd have to buy my ingredients right before cooking, and make sure that we don't have any left overs... or left over ingredients, for that matter. It's SO hard to do, if you think about it. I mean, you're bound to have things like milk and eggs left over from just about any recipe.

So we called a fridge repair guy right away. He came twice over the span of two days, took our fridge apart from top to bottom and couldn't figure out what was wrong with it! He finally suggested that we buy a new one! So we hired another guy. He knew what was wrong with it, but had a hard time fixing it because it's a new "freezer on the bottom" fridge that's constructed differently, blah blah. The drama goes on and on...

On top of that, Hubby and I have been incredibly sick. It was super cold on the east coast, with a couple of blizzards during the time we were there. Coming from mild-weathered, always-around-45-degrees-Seattle, we were entirely unprepared. We've been calling in sick, staying in bed as much as possible, and drinking tons of chicken soup.

So there you have it. This is what we've been up against all week, since coming home on Sunday!

Anyway, the main point of my ramblings it to say this:

I'm sorry that I will not be able to post anything this week, as a result of the disaster area that is my home right now! But rest assured that I will for sure return with awesome recipies first thing next week! So just bare with me until then. =)

Boy, the holidays always turns out to be such a crazy time, doesn't isn't it?

I hope everyone had a great holiday season and that yours turned out better than mine! hehe. And have a wonderfully happy new year! Can you believe it's already 2010?! I'm looking forward to trying some pretty amazing recipes in the new year to come! =)


  1. Judy, don't tell me that. I have 2 refrigerators and a chest freezer (full of baked goods)! What a nightmare... no I can't even imagine. Hope you two are nursed back to health (from each other) - that's the important thing. A cupcake or two will come along in due time! Happy New Year!

  2. Get well soon! And I hope your fridge gets fixed soon. If you really feel the need, Jeff and I will always let you use our kitchen for some of the goods. ;-) -- Erika from Google

  3. OMG, that is a nightmare to come home to and to be sick on top of it all! Get well, fix the fridge, and blog soon! I don't remember how I found your blog but I love it!! Happy New Year to you and yours!

  4. sorry to hear abt yr fridge, and hope you feel better soon.

  5. Judy, the last thing you should worry about is your followers right now; concentrate on getting well. This is just a little bump in the road - all will be back to normal soon.

    Hoping for a speedy recovery for you and your hubby and blessings to you for a fantastic New Year 2010. We will all be here patiently waiting for your next creation! Judy B. Houston, Tx

  6. Oh no!!!!! That is a nightmare! Oh my goodness, I can't even imagine! What a loss - it costs a small fortune to restock a fridge!

    So sorry :(....

  7. oh no that's terrible! I hope your fridge is back in order soon. hopefully you got all of your bad luck for the year out in this first day, and the rest will be great! take care and get well soon.

  8. I am a new follower, the past couple of weeks after hearing about it from a thread on Cakecentral. Very sorry to hear about the fridge, rotten food and to be sick on top of it. Hope everything is back to normal soon. Thanks for your blog, I enjoy it. Denette

  9. It's hateful advice, but: 'Stay Positive!'

    You'll be up and about again in no time. :)

    On the plus side, if you do end up having to buy a new fridge (bad for the environment, though good for the economy), appliance shopping is fun...

    Get well soon!
