So today I thought I'd give you a peak inside our refrigerator/freezer. I must warn you, its contents really do not look like what you might expect to find in the home of someone trying to lose weight. Keep in mind, I have four teenagers whose idea of eating healthy is having grilled onions on their bacon double cheese burger.
Up top there you see the it in it's most innocent view. It's outside shiny & peaceful, or maybe just shiny. A mess of stuff hangs off of it...
A- Grocery lists, TWO. The one on the left is for Costco on a Happy Bunny note pad; the right for Target or Dominicks on a Curious George note pad. In case you are wondering, the Curious George note pad is MINE!
B- A bunch of refrigerator magnets. The one being pointed out there is Garfield; no doubt trying to get inside in search of lasagna.
C- Chicago Blackhawks 2010 Stanley Cup Championship towel, just in case you needed a reminder before your snack.
Ok, let us see what is inside...
A- Greek Yogurt. Nobody eats this but me. This week it is Fage, next week maybe Chobani; whatever is on sale.
B- B is for Beverages. A Brita Water Dispenser keeps me hydrated. When water won't cut it, plenty of adult beverages; left to right Jack Daniels malt something-or-other for my wife, Chili Pepper flavored beer which I received as a gift, and Miller Lite in case John Madden stops by.
C- Leftovers galore! There you see a couple of baked potatoes still in foil, a container with pork chops, another with pasta in sauce, and the little one has pineapple chunks. Wednesday is usually leftover night.
So, what is to be found stored in the doors?
The left door, has less storage space as the ice maker is behind it. But still, some cool goods to be had here...
A- V8 Tomato Juice, I have a 5.5 oz can every day. Good Stuff!
B- Kids eat here, or I mean, kids sauce their food from here. Nasty commercial asian themed sauces which all have enough sugar to send anyone into a coma.
C- I am a man of convenience, hence I buy egg whites in a carton even though separating them by hand is pretty easy.
On to the other door...
Right door, simply just condiments...
A- Cream Cheese in all shapes & sizes of containers. You saw bread & bagels in the main compartment, have to have sour cream for those I hear... neither the bagels or cream cheese is eaten by me; almost never!
B- Amongst the ketchup and mustard what is this rare find highlighted here? Why yes, it is Bacon Flavored Mayo! Heaven in a jar my friends; HEAVEN!
C- Hot Sauce & Buffalo Wing Sauce are more popular in our house than milk or soda pop.
As promised, the deli/veg compartments...
As expected meats & cheeses can be found here...
A- Well also here is some healthy stuff in this veggie compartment; a bag of salad, carrots and green onions. I put this compartment to good use.
B- CHEESE, so many to choose from! We are only 15 minutes from Wisconsin, have to support the neighbors to the north.
C- Left to right, Venison snack-stix and bacon; Ok now I am hungry!
Just one more and we're done...
The Freezer, ours is below the refrigerator. Here is the stuff we use either frequently or will soon. In the basement is a monster-sized upright freezer with a ton of meat inside, oh and frozen waffles too. But back to this freezer...
A- A package of green beans in case someone burns themselves and needs a cold compress.
B- Meat-a-palooza; Pork Shoulder, Pork Chops, Chicken Breasts, Beef Roast
C- Ground meat; beef and venison, have to have variety!
Ok, I am done, your turn; what is in your refrigerator?
