I love nothing better than having a peak into someone elses fridge, I like to see what sort of snacks, vegetables and jars people eat. I’m terrible for keeping out of date jars so it always interests me to see if other people do the same!
Over the past couple of days I’ve noticed some ‘What’s in my fridge’ posts appear in my blog reader so I thought I would do my own so you can have a peek inside of my fridge.
I haven’t had the chance to do a proper instore shop for a couple of weeks now, I’m 8 months pregnant and carrying shopping bags is no longer an option for me so I’ve been ordering a weekly shop from Ocado and picking up small extras from my local Tesco and Marks & Spencer.
The top shelf of the fridge contains jars of pickles, jams and other condiments (I made sure to check the dates before posting) I’m not brand loyal at all but I am a little bit of a snob and rarely buy supermarket branded items.
The second shelf down is quite boring and contains Philadelphia which I find has a multitude of uses from cheesecake to pasta sauce, Coca-Cola is something I know I shouldn’t drink especially during my pregnancy but It’s the one caffeine treat I allow myself to have.
I’ve been suffering from leg twitches during the night since I was around 5 months pregnant, I read somewhere that Tonic Water can help ease the twitch so I like to make sure I have a bottle in the fridge to allow my nightly glass. I don’t like the taste of plain tonic water so I usually buy the twist of lemon or lime, I’m brand loyal to tonic water as store brand just doesn’t cut it.
Finally on the second shelf we have olive oil spread and sea salted butter, If I’m going to be baking a lot I usually have a few varieties of butter in the fridge.
Third shelf down houses Mr Gourmand’s beer, he got a box of 12 bottles for his birthday in December from a friend and there are 5 bottles left in the fridge, there is a bottle of Coca-Cola which was part of an Ocado meal deal.
We don’t have a dessert every evening but I have a Raspberry Trifle and a couple of Aero mousse just incase my daughter wants a treat after dinner. We have two shop bought garlic breads and a pack of tesco onion bahjis which I wouldn’t usually buy but again they came as part of a meal deal and I’m getting lazy carrying all of this extra weight around.
It was my birthday yesterday and we had a Chinese takeaway, my fourth shelf contains two bowls of leftovers which we will have again heated up this evening. I love coconut but hate cutting it up so waitrose pre packed coconut is perfect for me, finally I have a bag of fresh pasta and a couple of fresh sauces.
My final shelf contains two Pizza Express Pizzas, Turkey Bacon (3 packs as it’s hard to find), Duck, Lasagna and a stir fry sauce.
My bottom drawer is always filled to bursting with vegetables, I have a wide variety this week including Pumpkin, Leeks, Mushrooms, Celery, Tomatoes, Peppers, Salad ingredients, 2 Cabbages, Carrots and Stir Fry veg.
My fridge door is looking a little sorry for itself today, I usually have a selection of cheese at the top but it’s been empty since christmas as I havent been able to get to the cheese shop.
My most use condiments can be found on the first shelf which are wholegrain mustard, Dijon mustard, Tartar sauce and chilli sauce.
Second shelf down contains dressings, ketchup and bbq sauce along with some apple juice and coconut water.
Finally we have Milk, more tonic water and a bottle of fresh water for drinking (It tastes so much better cold)
So that’s all folks, that is the contents of my fridge, I won’t bother showing you my freezer as it only contains bags of ice and frozen leftovers.
If you are a blogger and have done a similar post I would love you to post a link below so I can have a nose!
