I know, it’s exciting: the post in which I show you the innards of my refrigeration system. I was going to post this last night in an effort to finish VeganMoFo strong with a post a day, but we got last minute tickets to the Warriors season opener, and beer goes so well with basketball that I broke my rule about no beer during the week, and then when we came home I found out bf likes celery sticks with ketchup and hot sauce. It’s like a bloody mary in stick form, and he made me try it and I do NOT like it.
This “show your freezer” meme has been making the rounds, and I didn’t do it because having just moved, there really wasn’t much in there. Then Bianca from Vegan Crunk also bared her fridge contents and tagged anyone with more than two bottles of hot sauce, and so I thought I should join in. I did make a grocery run and stock up just a little as to not look so pathetic.
Yeah, we like beer but there’s not normally THIS much beer in the fridge. We just happen to be fully stocked. Top shelf: beer, ground coffee, pumpkin seeds waiting to be roasted, tortillas (bf’s) and bread behind that, soy yogurt, open spaghetti sauce and pickled jalepenos, strawberries and pumpkin puree. Second shelf: more beer, bf’s sparkling water, mac n’ cheese and eggs, behind are my leftovers and a jar of garlic. In the meat and cheese drawer there is actually meat and cheese hidden away, not mine obviously. Produce: brussels sprouts, lettuce, half a jalapeno, carrots and celery.
Fridge door from top to bottom: earth balance, better than cream cheese, soy milk, oj, hot sauces, ketchup, mustards, pickles, goddess dressing, jams, more pickles, bf’s milk for coffee, almond butter, peanut butter, tahini, more jam, miso, Chaka’s sauce, red curry paste, worcestershire sauce, lemon juice, hoisin and green curry sauce.
Both fridge and freezer will not be this bare in a few months when I’ve stocked back up to full capacity, that’s for sure.
Freezer: A’s mug that I gave bf for Christmas, edamame, mini bagels, leftover tempeh sausage crumbles and breadcrumbs, cranberries.
Top shelf: mango, broccoli, peas and corn. Bottom: half a tube of gimme lean beef, ginger, almonds, cashews and coffee.
That’s it! If I can find a missing ingredient or two I’ll be back with dinner tonight, and tomorrow I’m going to a potluck Halloween party.
