Sonia, the fabulous Natural New Age Mum, challenged some bloggers to bare their fridges to the world today. What fun, I thought. Then ‘worrythoughts’ set in… What will people think? My food choices aren’t ‘perfect’ and my fridge isn’t super organised and Pinterest-worthy…
So, as an exercise in keeping it real and allowing myself to feel a tad vulnerable, this is what’s in my fridge…
A variety of Asian sauces including oyster, black vinegar and mushroom soy.
Cassis (for adding to champagne), maple syrup, yeast for homemade bread, butter, ginger and a variety of other condiments.
Milk, bubbly, white wine and soda water (yes, I do like the odd tipple!).
More sauces, condiments including my sister in law’s famous plum sauce and mum’s jam.
Soup, goat’s cheese, avocado and strawberries plus probiotics, gut supplements and medication.
Then we have a variety of nuts (I activated my own almonds for the first time last week), yoghurt, cheese, mushrooms and so on. The jar with the black lid to the right of the cheese contains Crio Bru grounds, ready for me to try some sort of face mask/scrub.
Still more condiments, curry pastes, capers, olives, more Asian ingredients such as miso, tamarind paste. Yup, love Asian food.
Bacon (hubby loves a cooked breakfast) and then we hit the main vegetable section. Today I have broccoli, sugar snap peas, carrots, snake beans, cauliflower, celery, red and yellow capsicum, zucchini and pumpkin. In the big blue pot is my lamb, barley and vegetable soup/stew (recipe coming soon).
Things that are normally in my fridge but I just happened to be out of that day include free range turkey and mountain bread (for Mr 6’s wraps) plus coconut cream and my frequent breakfast of mixed grain/nut/seed congee (I must remember to soak some more tonight!).
There you have it, my fridge wide open. Check out other people who have ‘bared all’ in the blog hop below.
Do you have a favourite cold item that I should find a home for in my fridge?
