foods that really stink when they expire

Ok, I'm not going to make a long post today but I opened my fridge today and smelled a funk, and now I'm inspired to share some wisdom I've picked up over the years.

I don't know why, but I know this to be true: you should never let the following foods go bad in your fridge because they stink utterly.

  1. broccoli
  2. black beans
  3. cauliflower
I'm off to burn some incense now. If you know any foods that should be on this list, submit them in your comments. Help me avoid stinky situations in the future.


  1. Hahah... That list made me laugh and it's so true. Those three things going bad can eventually make the whole kitchen stink. Eeeks!

    Also, any type of meat going bad and grapes. Good lord.... :S

  2. Grapes! Really--that one never occurred to me! As for meat, I guess I side step that landmine by being a vegetarian. But the beans are like an unavoidable hazard--I've always got beans in the fridge. Need to get the protein somehow...
