What's in your fridge?

What do you keep in your fridge?

On the average day we have Milk, eggs, cheddar, feta, organic Parmesan and shredded Mexican blend cheeses, mozzarella string cheese, broccoli, orange and apple juice, sweet tea, some kind of meat, bagged salad, a Brita water filter, apple sauce, peppers(banana and jalapenos usually), leftovers butter and condiments.

I have decided to take pictures of my fridge as often as I can remember. I think it will hopefully make me think twice about what I put in there and help me to see what sits in there and doesn't get used and what gets used a lot.

These are a few pictures from today and descriptions to go with them.

In our fridge today:

Top shelf - Brita water filter, leftover spaghetti sauce, broccoli, salsa, margarine, organic yogurt, cherry pie filling, a caprisun juice pouch, bagged salad, kosher hot dogs and the rice from the stir fry I made tonight for dinner.

Middle shelf - Two Sun Drop sodas, one large container of green grapes, one large container of red grapes, bagged salad, two and a half dozen eggs, half a head of iceberg lettuce and a large jar of applesauce hidden behind it all.

Bottom shelf - 1% Milk, Simply apple juice, no pulp orange juice, iced sweet tea, whipped butter, feta cheese, ham steaks, leftover re-fried beans and fresh mozzarella cheese

Left drawer - Mozzarella cheese sticks, Mexican blend shredded cheese, block of cheddar cheese and limes

Right Drawer - carrots and corn on the cob

Now the door:

Top shelf - soy sauce, Greek dressing, chocolate syrup, strawberry syrup, Caesar dressing, pure maple syrup, grenadine, banana peppers, pepperoncini, jalapenos, A1 steak sauce, white bean salsa and a Caesar salad kit dressing and crouton packet.

Bottom shelf - dill pickle chips, ketchup, teriyaki sauce, grape jam, BBQ sauce, yellow mustard, strawberry jelly, honey teriyaki marinade, moscato wine, Italian dressing, mayonnaise

The Freezer:

Eggo waffles, ice cubes, chocolate moose tracks ice cream, strawberries, collard greens, tater tots, chicken, bananas, Parker house rolls and chili frozen in slabs.

The door of the freezer:

Baking powder to keep it nice and fresh, crinkle cut fries, steak fries, thin mint girl scout cookies, mint chocolate chip ice cream, vanilla ice cream, jamocha almond fudge ice cream, lean ground beef and peanut butter cookie dough.

By the look of this freezer you'd think we ate a lot of ice cream. Truth is most of those are full and completely iced over, we should probably throw them out.

I try to make good use of my freezer by buying lots of meat when it's on sale and then freezing it. I also try to make large batches of things like soup, chili, spaghetti and meatballs or meat sauce so we can freeze it and have it for a night when we are busy or are feeling lazy. It is also nice to have for lunches and nights when I'm not going to be home and the hubs is fending for himself.

I hope you enjoyed taking a peak into my fridge. More peaks to come!
