J and I have a peculiar problem. Our refrigerator is too filled with beer to accommodate much food.
This is because, before our Super Bowl party on Sunday, J bought two cases of cold beer so that there would be beer on hand for the first guests who arrived. (I had been thinking he would either be picking up a six pack, or if he did get a case, that it wouldn't have been cold. But he got the cases from Springfield Beer Distributor, where he says that all of the beer is chilled because the large room it's all displayed in is cool.) Then, most of the people who came to the party brought six packs of beer, only drank one or two, and then refused to take any of it home with them.
And so this is what our fridge looks like now, almost a week after the party.
I really don't know what to do! Clearly I am not in a position to whittle this down. Probably the easiest thing to do would be to have a party, but I have to confess, I was looking forward to at least a couple of weekends without any hosting responsibilities before this baby (and our families) arrive. Then again, it's just beer, so it's not like any party we would have would have to be anything fancy or schmoozy.
This weekend Chiaroscuro is coming to visit, so you can be sure we will do our best to foist beer on her. But she is only one (small) person, so I'd be surprised if she made a significant dent.
And then, soon, we'll be having a baby shower (and actually, the plan is to do it at our apartment). My sister tells me that beer isn't usually a big feature of a baby shower, but I informed her that if we still have this much beer in our fridge by the time of the shower, then it's going to have to be a big drinking party.
Woo hoo! Takers?
