An article in The New York Times has me thinking about the contents of my refrigerator again. The last time we looked in my icebox an empty cardboard six-pack holder of light beer and withered strawberries graced the shelves.

Not much has changed since August. The strawberries are gone, replaced by a small container of organic whipping cream I bought for coffee when my mother visited. She was here in October. There's a half-eaten chocolate toffee thing and a few more empty six-pack holders now, too. My fridge is a mini food desert.

Mustard. Yellow. And of course bread and cheese. While most people panic without eggs and milk, I can't stand the very thought of no bread, a little sliced yellow cheese and mustard. I've gone to my car in search of mustard packets. I need help. (Help me.)
