Fridge Challenge

Michelle over at From Seed To Table asked to see my fridge. And I'm not sure why, but here they are.

The indoor fridge
 The top shelf in the indoor fridge is mainly made up of misc condiments that we 'need'. The first large shelf contains some super old aloe juice that I drank when I was pregnant to help alleviate my blood pressure (turns out it was the fact that my legs were dangling off the exam table that caused it to be so high....thanks Doc for freaking me out) [and yes, my daughter is 4 months old, so that should really be tossed], 2 blocks of tofu (we love the stuff!), more condiments, half a watermelon, fridge pickles, some chicken..... and the lower self contains eggs (it is really amazing how quickly we go through eggs!), leftovers from the week and fruit. The two drawers are jam packed with veggies (store bought) and whatever we have managed to bring in from the garden.  The bottom skinny drawer is mainly my guilty pleasure drawer, cured meats, cheeses, pate..... yummy stuff that I couldn't eat when pregnant but love. And a fruitcake. I LOVE fruitcake....

The garage fridge
This was supposed to be the husband's beer and work lunch fridge. I commandeered it. And this is before I added milk, eggs and strawberries to it!  This is the fridge that I make sure is mostly empty when my Mom comes to visit, because one trip to the Asian market and out fridges are overflowing.

So I showed you mine....


  1. Thanks for joining in the fun Nartaya! Funny how many of us have that guilty pleasure drawer - and it always seems to be the skinny drawer. Mine has pig parts - sausage, bacon, prosciutto, pancetta - and cheese, we can't live without pig parts and cheese around here.

    1. I agree! We can't keep prosciutto in the house or our 5 year old will devour it. I love exploring the 'little Italy' portions or cities to find more yummy cured meats. We came across a small shop in the Ferry building in SF named Boccalone whose slogan was 'salty tasty pig parts' and immediately had to purchase some of their salami. We were so disappointed. Never trust a salami with a cute slogan....

  2. You show me yours. We will. We're so busy, but this looks like fun!
