    Our cats are awful. They broke my butter bell!

    We have to keep the butter in the cupboard, or they'll be at it. Sometimes they manage to get the door open anyway and still leave the telltale raspy tongue marks.

    Cheese gets moldy but you can just cut the mold off. I freeze cheese that I can't use in time (because I sometimes buy bulk cheese). As long as you let it thaw at room temperature it prevents crumbling.

    Some people I stayed with who didn't have a fridge left eggs out. They last a couple weeks without going bad.
    That makes sense, actually. Folks generally didn't have refrigeration in the old days, unless they had access to an ice house or something. At best they had root cellars or terracotta crocks they kept in water to promote evaporative cooling, but that doesn't generally cool things down more than a few degrees (and the crocks don't work at all if it's humid).
