First you frigerate, and then you refrigerate.
You are not alone Breezey, everybody thinks there is a D in it, but there's not. There's meat, milk, butter and eggs, veggies and mayonnaise, but no D (except for vitamin D in the milk).

I don't even know why it's refrigerate instead of frigerate. Apparently, it has something to do with the Latin roots of the word.

Well, English is based partly on Latin, and many of the other languages which English borrows from are also based on Latin (Italian, French, Spanish, German...
