What's in your Fridge Friday

My blog friend, Jessica, is doing a fun Friday feature called "What's in your Fridge Friday."

I think this is so funny and so perfect for nosy people like me types!

So what's in the Newlyweds Next Door's Fridge? ...

The main shelves contain: Milk, salsa, cranberry juice, Brita, a half of an onion leftover from last night, Parmesan cheese (for these potatoes I'm making tonight), Trader Joe's yogurts, bagels, bread.

I warned you before, we tend to not have a lot of food on hand.

The meat drawer contains: Turkey lunch meat, ham lunch meat, procsutto.

The produce drawers contain: apples, limes, oranges, zucchini, peppers, tomatoes, asparagus, corn, and arugula.

Our produce drawers are a little lighter this week because our CSA came last week, not this week.

The door contains: Pacifico beers, 3 kinds of cheese, PB&J, and a whole lot of condiments.

Now I know it doesn't seem like we have a lot of food on hand but I did cook two meals this week! I made Thai curry chicken and veggies stir fry on Wednesday and Gazpacho on Thursday.

How did I cook without a lot of food on hand?

I've been doing a new shopping technique where I buy staples that keep a long time (like rice, condiments, soups, cereal, frozen food, etc.) once a month at Costco. And then when I'm not out of town working, I do lots of small trips to Trader Joe's and Fresh & Easy on my way home from from my office and only buy fresh food for the next 2-3 days out. It keeps me from getting overwhelmed with shopping and keeps me from wasting food. I'm lucky that I have to drive by a Trader Joe's to get home from my office.

Now, tell me, what's in YOUR Fridge? Or better yet, link up to Jessica's blog, My Beatles Babies.

I have a bachelor fridge, too! Usually random low fat stuff and wine. ; )

I'm like you. I keep tons of staples on hand and then we only have to pick up a few things here and there.
That's the best way to do it!I lov eme some Trader Joes!

It's actually better than you don't have a ton in your fridge and you have more in staples, frozen food, etc. Less food to worry about wasting!

Jessica said...

Ha! I am so tickled that you posted!

Next time you make curry stir fry, invite me over, k? Thanks.

I tend to keep my fridge pretty empty too. For whatever reason having too much in it just really seems to overwhelm me.

Our fridge is suprisingly full but we also live with 2 other people.
