10 Things In My Fridge | Very Culinary
Amy is here today! I feel like I’ve been blogging alongside Amy for what seems like… an eternity? Meaning, since the beginning! (or pretty darn close.) Amy’s blog, Very Culinary, is filled with the most beautiful photography and fantastic recipes (this one in particular has become a household regular & favorite for my family, you all have to make it). She’s a fun, down-to-earth chick, one I’d love to hang out in the kitchen with listening to music and eating pie (freshly baked by her of course). Thanks so much for being here today Amy!
Hi gang! Amy from Very Culinary here. I think it goes without saying that my refrigerator is never this organized! But for the sake of this fun little project, I cleaned it up a bit. It actually motivated me to purge some things – like the near-empty salad dressing bottles, circa 2012. Hello. But what you see, are all items that my fridge is never without!
1. White wine. I don’t drink it, but I sure do cook with it. A lot.
2. Lots and lots of eggs! I’m a big fan of breakfast for dinner. And I also bake. So needless to say, I go through a lot of eggs. I’d love to have some free-range chickens of my own. Someday.
3. Bacon, ground sausage, and hash browns. I go through that stuff like mad. Perhaps because of that whole breakfast for dinner thing ^^^.
4. Breads! White bread, raisin bread, bagels, and Stonefire naan flatbread. I would never go gluten-free by choice!
5. Olives and dill pickles – in things, on things, or just by themselves. Pure love.
6. Sauces and spreads
(a) homemade lemon curd – I make a new batch once a month. Candy, I tell ya.
(b) Sabra hummus – the next best thing to homemade. Dare I say, maybe even better?
(c) Greek yogurt – for my daily smoothies!
(d) Philadelphia cream cheese – because…cream cheese. Paleeze.
(e) margarine – in addition to real butter, not instead of.
(f) maple syrup – mmmmm.
(g) nut butters – because of my the kids’ peanut allergy *sad violin*, but also because they’re delicious!
7. Heavy cream and chicken stock – I never have to worry about expiration dates on the heavy cream, I use it too fast. And I always have chicken and/or vegetable stock at the ready. The stock and cream end up together in so many stews and pasta dishes. Bliss.
8. Fruits and vegetables – in particular, strawberries, blueberries, spinach, tomatoes, and bell peppers – love, love, love. These are foods that take up permanent residence in my planter boxes during the growing season. if I ever ran out of these items, I would have a very unhappy house.
9. Cheese, Pillsbury Grands and crescent rolls – cheeeeeese. Stinky, spicy, buttery, nutty… I love them all! And Pillsbury. I wish I owned stock in General Mills.
10. Bologna, hot dogs, salami, and pepperoni – we’re all about our lunch meats here. Perfect for school sandwiches, but also for pizza and quesadillas.
What you don’t see! – milk. SO. MUCH. MILK. We bought a second refrigerator for the garage to hold all of our milk. Well, not quite. Sort of. Ha. You also don’t see all the butter, mayonnaise, ketchup, and mustard. All staples!
