Red Neckedness...

Did you know that my ice dispenser dispenses corn?

Yep. Just put your cup under my in door ice dispenser, press the button, and PRESTO!!!

Frozen corn!

WooOOOO HOOOoooo!

Another way to sneak in those pesky vegetables that are so hard to get 5 a day of...

Wait! It gets even more exciting!

The corn has freezer burn!

What. You didn't expect to get fresh frozen corn from my ice dispenser, did ya?

So. Here's how it all came about...

The refrigerator was part of the house...We decided to leave our cheap, poor energy efficiency fridge in South Texas. After all, how convenient we can leave ours behind, and not mess with moving it!!!

We move into our lovely castle, and discover that the handle is broken off for the on/off of our ice maker. Also, apparently, this fridge isn't so energy efficient itself! The ice is in the door. However, it doesn't keep it cool very well, because, when I put ice in it, the ice melts, then refreezes in a big chunk! So, even if I buy ice, I have to get an ice pick to get to it!

I decided this was a complete waste of my time, so I bought a nice stack of ice trays and a handy dandy ice bucket, which I keep in my freezer. However, now I have this big bucket of nothingness taking up space...

You know I hated to waste that space. One day when I was trying to cram my frozen veggies in my freezer, which needed cleaned out as usual, I decided to throw the bag of corn in there for the moment...

After all, I was pretty sure I'd get around to cleaning my freezer in the next few years or so...

Unfortunately, my kids had a friend over who was determined to convince my girls that the ice maker actually dispensed ice...Unfortunately, all they proved is that the ice dispenser could indeed tear a hole in a plastic corn bag....

Of course, I was slightly horrified, and decided that I simply must get that freezer cleaned out soon...

And I will...





*Someday*

But for now, you will receive not only a warm welcome from my front door...


You will get this in your glass...




Now if that ain't classy, I don't know what is!

And, yes. Apparently some peas met the same demise as the corn.

P.S. Am I the only one who occasionally struggles with blogger thinking that pictures need to be turned sideways? I even went and edited them to sideways so blogger may rotate them the right way. Oh well..

Hilarious!
Oh, and yes, I had the same issues with blogger and I got so mad that I switched to Wordpress.
Take that blogger!

Okay, that would have to be the coolest thing I've ever seen. Who needs an ice dispenser? Corn's where it's at.
Love it. =)
