Michelle at From Seed To Table asked if we would show off candid shots of our fridge to see what we have in them. So here goes.
The next shelf has two cartons of eggs from the farmers market. Then in the middle leftovers of blueberry zucchini bread and the aforementioned salmon. To the right is my greens bin. I find greens store best in a plastic bin that they fill up, but aren't crushed in. I keep a towel on the bottom so they don't sit in moisture and rot. It keeps them fresh a long long time.
Next shelf has a bag of cabbage. Behind that I keep my batteries. Then some almost gone eggs from Jocelyn, a farming friend of my townhousemates (who I've gotten pork from and some horse manure compost in the spring). She has the BEST eggs. So much better than the farmers market eggs. I don't get many over the course of a summer, but I wish I did. On the right of the shelf are some cut up finger veggies in those take out containers. Many years ago I bought them in bulk. I store everything in them. In a little one is some yogurt dip that I use with the veggies. Beside them is a bottle of CBC beer.
The next level are two drawers. The left side stores my cheese and deli meats. I don't usually have deli meats in there, but today I have some turkey. And lots of cheese. I love cheese. On the right is a drawer full of carrots. I pulled them in June and will eat them until the fall carrots come in. Luckily carrots keep well if tightly wrapped to keep them moist. I also use the towel underneath to keep them from rotting. And there are two kohlrabi in there too.
The bottom thin drawer I use for veggies and fruit. It is just the right size to fit those takeout containers. They contain all sorts of small bits of odds and ends. Often beans, peas, turnips, radishes, herbs, etc. I also have apples from the farmers market in there and onions that have been partially used.
So there you have it. My fridge. Not too exciting, but pretty representative of how I eat. Oh and so I don't miss out on Thursday's Kitchen Cupboard with Robin, I'll show you the one thing I froze this last week for winter.cabbage soup. I had some for lunch that day, but the rest is all frozen. What I wanted to do was make applesauce, but the large cheaper bags of apples at the farmers market were gone by the time I got there. Next week I'll have to get there right when it opens. Maybe I'll take the car if my husband will leave it for me and I can pick up some of the winter meats too.
