Cate at Sweetnicks says that you can learn a lot about a person by the state of their purse. Or wallet. Or car. And if those can reveal interesting tidbits about you, imagine what someone could learn from the state of your fridge! So Cate wants to know,what's in your fridge?
It's a question I don't really want to answer, but what the heck.
My fridge right now is a disaster! It's never really in good shape, but this past week has seemed to be an especially bad time.
On the top shelf - from left to right - we have some leftover tomato sauce being saved to baste a meatloaf being baked tonight, olives, hot dogs, margerine, mayo, mustard and I think a zucchini in a plastic bag.
Middle shelf - Ground beef thawing, baby carrots, a plastic bag of cheese from the cheese store, some yogurt, a cooler, and worcestershire sauce. I can see lots of condiments in the back peeking out too.
Bottom shelf - A bowl with 2 hard boiled eggs sitting on top of a container of soup. Behind the eggs, frapuccino mix, chicken broth and milk. A jug of water because I haven't gone to the water store to buy a new water bottle. More milk and more soup.
The worst part of the fridge - the door. How 2 people can have so many condiments, sauces, spices, jams and such is truly a mystery. Below the cheese slices I can identify some jam, hoisin sauce, green relish, an unopened bottle of curry mint sauce I totally forgot I have even though it's right in my face, and some tomato paste and anchovy paste in (separate) tubes.
Next shelf down - curry paste, mushroom finishing sauce, and 90000000000 bottles of bbq sauce, hot sauce and on and on and on.
Three things I always have in the fridge - milk, cheese and 90000000 bottles of condiments.
Three things I never have in my fridge - Kalamata Olives when I decide to make a recipe that calls for them, Molasses - because you figure out pretty quick not to store it in the fridge after you've done it once, and room for actual food amongst my 90000000 bottle of condiments.
O, the shame! Cate, thanks for the opportunity to show the internets the horrible state of my fridge! I hope there's at least one person out there who can beat me in the messy department.
