You know, getting all up in their business.
Even their fridges.
Yesterday, Edie posted about her fridge contents and what it might say about her, and I immediately thought, BRILLIANT.
Or maybe I've just reached the dregs of possible blogging material.
If our fridge could talk (and who's to know what happens when the door is closed anyway?) maybe this is what it would tell you...
*there are lots of fresh fruit and veggies
*it's mostly all *real* food
*leftovers for lunch and quick meals
*dairy is our friend
*so is salsa
*could we have more types of milk product? (almond milk:me, skim: Scott, whole:Annelise, half & half:me, whipping cream:recipes, individual milk: Annelise's lunches, cheese (colby jack & string): all of us and don't forget...real butter: good friend to everyone
*yes, that is a brown banana (for my spinach-kale smoothie later)
*we do have deli meat, which I'm not sure if that qualifies as *real* food (Annelise eats the natural choice Hormel stuff and Scott loves paper-thin-preservative-full Buddig)
*I either need to throw out the leftover tortilla soup from Sunday or eat it for lunch today
*yes, that is a package of ground beef thawing out on the counter, which is apparently a no-no, but I forgot to transfer it to the fridge in adequate thaw time for our taco soup tonight (oops)
*is anyone ever going to eat that leftover turkey burger patty (it's from last week, should I toss or risk it?)
*I keep raw eggs in their container (house) and boiled eggs (usually for Annelise's lunches or quick snack) in the door
*I need to buy more dijon mustard after squeezing the last drop of our expired mustard last week (we're fine, no one died, it only expired in February, I think)
*I never know what I should keep in the bottom hydrator thing, usually onions and garlic or potatoes (which probably shouldn't be in the fridge anyway but I've never carved out valuable pantry space)
And a few more things (our fridge is wordy)...
1.) the leftovers prove I've followed through on my meal-planning (YAY)
2.) the large containers of spinach and kale mean I'm trying to be healthy(-ish, -ier) (at least through smoothies)
3.) the almost full container of cabbage means I have not eaten a salad since I bought it and cut it up
4.) the boxes of stick butter means I've been on a baking binge (I should never have tried that chocolate chip cookie recipe) and therefore negate #2
5.) most of all though, I think a full fridge says we are blessed (!!)
You can peek at the inside of more fridges here.
What does your fridge say about you?
If you do this too let me know, you know I'd love to peek!
