I’m a creature of habit. For as long as I can remember I get home from the grocery store and put things that don’t need to be in the refrigerator, in the refrigerator. Things that only need to be refrigerated after they are opened. They weren’t in the refrigerated section in the grocery store and definitely don’t need to be in the fridge before being opened. Things like mayonnaise, Ketchup, (I grew up in Canada where it was spelled catsup), Mustard, the jar of pickles. I never even used to think about it, but maybe I’ll find a spot for them on a shelf or in a cupboard.

I’m not finished with the refrigerator. I also like some fruit to be refrigerated before I eat it too. Apples and Oranges for example. I think when they are at a cold temperature they just taste better, and in the case of apples, they have a better texture too.

On to tomatoes. Do you put tomatoes in the fridge. I remember as a kid watching some black and white movie on television and the gangster type guy called a woman a ‘tomato’. I had to run and ask my Mother about that. Anyway, tomatoes do have a different taste whether they are stored in or out of the refrigerator. Or is it just my bias that I think a tomato tastes so much better when it’s chilled. I guess it’s like the old song, you say tomato, I say tomato. By the way, the song is Let’s Call The Whole Thing Off, and yes I had to google it.
