Items that go in the refrigerator or freezer. This word is necessary because not all perishables are refrigeraed, and not all refridgables are perishable. I added the "d" as in "fridge" to aid pronunciation; otherwise, it would be "refrigables" which would want a "hard g."
Wife to husband: Would you bring the groceries in from the car and put the refridgables away?
