I Must Confess…welcome to my fridge!

A quick one from me this week as I’m exhausted from battling a cold, holding Matilda’s birthday party and preparing for the arrival of the latest addition to our family (more on that in another post 😉 )

So, to the contents of my fridge. I must say I’m always interested in finding out what is in other people’s fridges. Probably just some weird quirk of mine but there’s something about seeing what other people eat and drink that fascinates me.

But I do want to declare to my IRL friends that I’m not some kind of weird stalker with a food fetish. Honest.

As you can see below, my fridge is low on fruit and veg (all I have in the crisper are a lonely bag of grapes). Unfortunately it’s high on sweets, a by-product of Matilda’s party on Saturday.

Other points of interest in my fridge:

  • We have two different containers for margarines and jams – one is for the coeliacs, the other for the non-coeliacs. Much safer for us coeliacs to use dedicated spreads than running the risk of cross contamination from the kids’ highly glutenised bread.
  • I used to be adamant that tomato sauce should be stored in the pantry but I was converted to keeping it in the fridge after taking the time to read the instructions on the bottle which states “refrigerate after opening,” So that’s what I now do.
  • We use long life milk and buy in bulk to save costs. And yes, it’s long life skim milk – some people claim it tastes different but I’m used to it now – even the kids love drinking it plain.
  • I have finally found a yoghurt that I actually like. The Jalna creamy natural greek yoghurt is very morish and perfect on pancakes! #justsayin #notsponsored
  • We have  multiple bottles of water, a big block of cheese and two dozen eggs in the fridge. Along with milk, we seem to go through these items more often than any others.

Are you game to share the contents of your fridge? Do you have any points of interest to note of your own?

Let’s start confessing – you’ll feel better for it, I promise 🙂

  1. Right now I have a PIMPED fridge because I did a big shop and hopefully have enough for the whole week! I also put tom sauce in fridge, it’s better cold I reckon! Get well soon – I too am suffering a head cold/razor blade throat! x

  2. Milk, cheese and eggs are big staples in our house too, except we don’t keep eggs in the fridge. We get thru 3 dozen a week, which sounds like a lot but with 7 of us it’s actually less than an egg per person per day. Our average weekly cheese consumption is about 1.5kg.

    I hope you are feeling better soon x

    At the moment my fridge is a bit old mother Hubbard because I need to do a grocery shop. Cheese is pretty popular in our house too, although now that Kraft have changed their labelling on the cheese sticks, Dyl refuses to eat them!

      Isn’t it funny how little changes like that can make it impossible for kids to eat them? Happens to mine all the time…

  4. I wasn’t game to share my fridge this week … it’s a disaster area! LOL. We have so many jars of jams, pickles, chutneys and the like it drives me MENTAL but other people in the house like them …

    I love that yoghurt! Good luck working through all those sweet treats! I can’t resist anything like that so best not to have it in my fridge!

  6. I’m in need of a stunt double while hubby is away. Finding it hard to fit everything in at the moment and more exhausted than normal.

    Hope you are on the mend. I’ve finally linked up. Hoping to find some spare time tomorrow to catch up on blog hopping. 🙂

    I love seeing what’s in other’s fridges too…sometimes gives me ideas of something different to buy for snacks and drinks. I’m such a boring shopper. I buy the same stuff every single week. Thanks for hosting 🙂

      I’m a very predictable shopper too Paula but I don’t think that’s all that bad. We just know what works for our families!!!
