Come on Inside…

March 2, 2009

My fridge, that is.  My friend Sue was interested in buying a seeing my new fridge, and I’m so in love with it that I want you all to see it, too.

First, the exterior – the “glamour shot”:

A Sight to Behold!

Pretty, isn’t it?  It’s so shiny that it caught the flash from my camera. 

 And now for the piece de resistance, the interior – the “money shot”.  I made sure to take these photos the day after grocery shopping, so you can get a glimpse into what makes me so Wendalicious.

A Diagrammatic Look Inside My Fridge

A Diagrammatic Look Inside My Fridge

As you can see, the thing is built for speed.  Please note the HEALTHY food shown scattered across the fridge.  Most of it will get thrown away next Sunday.  Just kidding.  Mostly.
 
Here are a couple close-up shots of the various foodstuffs chillaxin’ in my fridge:

 

The Meaty Deli Drawer: fake bacon, real bacon, bratwurst, chicken tenders, sirloin steaks, hot dogs, ham, and some other stuff I don't remember putting in there.  I think there may be some gingerroot in the back.

Sesame tahini (for hummus), ground pork and turkey (for Swedish meatballs), leftover Chinese, homemade creamy black bean tomato soup, and A&W Root Beer Floats.

Fat-free sour cream, minced garlic, Greek yogurt, French Vanilla soymilk creamer (the shiny blue box), and cage-free eggs

water (all natural - is there any other kind?), milk, caramel syrup, and roasted red peppers.  Please note the containers in the back: you should always store rice, whole wheat flour, and flaxseeds in the fridge so they last longer!

And, last but not least – THE FREEZER!
Danger lurks in the outer reaches of the deep-freeze...including chicken pot pies (not mine), apple turnovers (not mine), chocolate molten lava cakes (not mine), and fat-free no-sugar-added vanilla ice cream (mine).

 Well, now that you’ve seen the contents of my fridge, I feel so…so…exposed.

I should at least tell you what I’m making for lunch/dinner this week, with all those tasty ingredients:

  • Slow Cooker Lasagna (that was tonight’s dinner and it was GREAT!)
  • Slow Cooker Swedish Meatballs (my MIL is Swedish, and she shared her mother’s recipe with me)
  • Bratwurst Pretzel Pizza (from last month’s Rachael Ray magazine, God help me)
  • Buffalo Chicken Tenders (I have no recipe – I’m just wingin’ it.)
  • Cilantro White Bean Hummus, as a spread on Mediterranean Veggie Sandwich (cukes, roasted red peppers, feta cheese, tomatoes, all on whole grain bread)

I’ll definitely post the Swedish Meatballs recipe, since it’s so delicious.  MIL made it for Christmas Eve dinner, and I’m hoping it’s going to become a tradition.

And the Cilantro Hummus is a pretty good copy of the version that Panera Bread makes.  Their Meditteranean Veggie Sandwich ROCKS, and I wanted to make it at home.  So I did!  The bread I bought for the sandwich is from Rock Hill Bakehouse, called “8 Grain 3 Seed”.  You can buy it in either Price Chopper or Hannaford.  It is SO delicious that I often just eat it totally plain.  It’s sweet, nutty, chewy and perfect for sandwiches.

 I hope you enjoyed the journey into my refrigerator.  More posts as more interesting items make an appearance…

    I actually found your blog while searching something out in knitting…..go figure….

    Just wanted to say I enjoy it…I commented many months back about the Saurbraten …. Sorry about your BIL….teaches us that life is so very precious…..

    @Chris: Thanks for the compliments! FYI, the fridge is a Maytag (just in case you’re going shopping soon…)

    We have one very similar. Very fancy indeed. I find the freezer to be a bit annoying, though, because stuff gets buried.

    I try not to dwell on the negatives, Joanne. 😉

    But you’re right.
