What's in *YOUR* Fridge?

Yesterday, I got to thinking about the sometimes disgusting, always interesting, weird-variety of shit in my fridge, and I thought to myself: Self, you need a new question of the month (because it's technically been the Question of 3.25 Months at this point). So my question is this:

What's in *YOUR* fridge?

Particularly, what's in your meat-drawer?

I thought this question might be particularly fascinating since many of us HAVE a meat-drawer, but I'm sure we keep a strange variety of other-worldly things in there. For example, I have stale bread that I feed to the birds, tofu, cornmeal, and spicy-peppers.

So that's my question of the month.

I shall answer it below, and then I leave you to your own wits.

I know it is near impossible to leave pics in the comments, so I encourage everyone who reads this and has an interest to run home, take a pic of your fridge and its contents, and post it on your blog. Then post your link here.

We will have a crazy-fridge-fest like NO OTHER CRAZY FRIDGE-FEST THAT'S EVER BEEN HAD BEFORE!
