what not to refigerate maybe


that is a cherokee purple that i picked early a few years ago
i placed it on the counter until it completely ripened
fighting my wife she so she wouldnt put it in the refrigerator 
which would ruin its flavor if it ever ripened in that cold environment

i think i have convinced her to not refrigerate tomatoes
i still find them in there sometimes
is a struggle sometimes

this article i read listed 5 things to not put in the refrigerator
most i agree with

the manufacturer says refrigerate after opening
dont leave it out
i know some of yall leave it out
i see it out at restaurants and cafes
i know its tomato based
put it in the refrigerator
upside down please

leave it in the frig
my wife she is known to leave it out sometimes
it makes be a little nervous when she does that
so i put it back in the frig which makes her angry with me
im use to that
ok ill admit she leaves it out usually related to some recipe

i eat whatever she cooks even if she left out the butter
i figure the oven will kill most of the germs

should be left out of the frig if possible since they taste better that way
just eat them in a few days
we usually have ours in the frig
if i bring any from the garden we usually eat them day of

dont refrigerate since it tastes better not cold
i know folks who freeze theirs
not me
i eat mine especially sees candies soon after they enter our condo

leave them out until they ripen
we follow that rule

hot sauce
all ours are in the cabinets unless its a pepper sauce
what germ would live in a real hot sauce 

from the store gets refrigerated
eggs from our garden could get left out but i refrigerate them since it makes me feel better
eggs get a coating on them when they are laid 
if its not washed off its safe to leave them out
store bought eggs are washed 
i like to be real safe
they all go in the frig at our house

i am a you got one week in my refrigerator type of guy
after 7 days the chickens get whats older than 7 days
some things like soups i freeze to use later

i dont want to get sick from what my wife she is growing in the refrigerator
i prefer to eat  whats growing fresh in my garden

what do you do
