I'll show you mine if you show me yours (your fridge silly!)

I'll show you mine if you show me yours (your fridge silly!)

I am easily amused as many of you already know. My idea of good to share info has always caught people off guard (Sorry McGramps for making you blush with the pubic hair mention!), I am an odd one but it keeps people on their toes…

Keeping with the oddness I decided to snap this photo of my fridge but before you look at it know I’ll be expecting to see a photo of yours now! I show you mine, if you show me yours.

I know you are thinking, “what on earth is so entertaining about the inside of someone’s fridge?” Think about it for a second, you know how some people snoop through other people’s medicine cabinets? Well the fridge photo is the same.

Take the box of wine in my fridge for example, it was for me but now I am knocked up and not drinking it. We are using it to cook and to catch fruit flies now since N is a beer (not wine) guy.

You can also see the giant mixing bowl of gingerbread cookie dough and the maple pumpkin cheesecake (in the spring form pan) in there.

The fridge and freezer have been making me crazy these days. There is just too damn much stuff in there. Yesterday the jar of 9 bean soup fell out and smashed N’s toe.

We have too much food in there but I have a major issue with throwing good food out. N eats the majority of the left over food (he takes it to work with him) so we keep left overs. I also have them for lunch when I am too lazy to cook.

Plus with money being tight it is very important for us to make our food dollars go as far as they can. That is why you’ll notice canning jars of chicken stock and that jar of 9 bean soup chilling in there. We don’t waste anything.

Problem is we also do not have the proper containers to store that much food despite our owning a slew of those Tupperware like dishes. It seems we need more or we need to eat faster.

In our defense many other families have an overflow of food in their fridge this time of year as a result of all the holiday baking and entertaining right? This is why I want to see a photo of your fridge!

  • I thought I was the only one that bought salsa in a huge jug like that? My frige is pretty bear right now, seeing that we went to other peoples houses to eat over the holiday.

  • Mmmmm,, box of wine,,! I will take a picture after I have some coffee in me, my fridge is so empty it is embarrassing. We did dinner at my brother’s, so no leftovers, and with the roads here so bad I have been walking to the grocery store, so no real stockpiling of food for awhile.

  • I use quart size zip lock freezer bags for storing a lot of stuff in my fride. Rice, leftover veggies, leftover mashed potatoes, leftover meat. It takes up a lot less room, and can be put in the microwave to reheat. Then, you can toss them in the trash when you are done.

  • The door on my fridge looks very similarly cramped. I used to participate in Fridge Fridays, where everyone showed a fridge pic like this. It was shameful showing my leftovers in the same spot week after week.

  • I would purge it, but there really isn’t that much to get rid of in there. It’s all fresh leftovers. It’s the time when having an extra fridge makes a lot of sense, at least from a toe-smashing visually pleasing sort of sense.
