    What's in your fridge ?

    Post by Jan1 on Sat Aug 16 2014, 16:50

    What's in your fridge?

    No, I'm not asking for an extensive list ....only asking what is your most favourite, and what is your most important item that is in your fridge today.

    My favourite is that bottle of Pinot Grigio gently chilling.

    My most important is butter, just wouldn't be without it. My favourite butter is Kerrygold, but as it's one of the more expensive I do keep my eye open for any special offers the supermarkets have from time to time.

    Looking forward to hearing about your two items.

    All the best Jan

    Ok, my favourite is eggs, so versatile. I love an omelette. My second choice is a cold Peroni ! I'm fortunate in that it doesn't seem to affect my BG levels :-)

    I put my 3 tortoises in the (spare) fridge in winter. Does this count? Crusty pies?

    Seriously though, I think my Kerrygold and my Fage yogurts must be top of the list, plus my bottled up tap water.

    Are any of your tortoises called Ginster ? If not, one should be :-)

    Cheese and mushrooms. Everything I eat seems to be accompanied by a big heap of the latter.

    The stuff we ALWAYS have in the fridge:
    Lactofree milk
    Double cream
    Anchor or Kerrygold salted
    Kerrygold or Lurpak unsalted
    Mattersons smoked sausages
    Chorizo
    Parmesan, Edam, Brie and Gouda, babybel and/or cheese strings
    Whole grain mustard
    Horseradish (the one with BITE)
    Sugarfree jelly or panna cotta
    Then we cycle through a variety of fresh meats, fish, green veg, salad stuff, Mediterranean veg types and Mr B has an obsession with innocent veg pots (but only if on Special)

    In the larder cupboard we constantly have:
    The entire 70% chocolate output of a small country
    About 10 peanut 9bars
    A shop display box of Anglesey Posh Pork scratchings
    Cashews, Brazils and macadamias
    Happy eggs

    I also seem to have acquired enough chorizo and green beans to feed the world so that's tomorrow's dinner sorted- chicken and chorizo stew and a mountain of green beans

    The two essentials in my fridge are Fage and Kerrygold

    I don't keep eggs in the fridge and have become a Burford Browns egg snob. A little more expensive but proper deep orange yolks that you might remember from your childhood

    "Burford Browns" can't say I've come across these will have to look out for them.


    I think you're right eggs should not be kept in the fridge.......but should be in the house. Never be without any eggs it's my motto !

    It's the Total Greek yogurt. Took me ages to work out what folk were on about as I'd never seen it in shops but then noticed that it is on the tubs of Total!

    We keep eggs in fridge. Is there any reason why we shouldn't ?

    Well they don't need to be kept in a fridge. That idea came from a designer who thought it looked good to have those special egg racks. I'm not sure if it's actually better to keep them outside of a fridge, but that's what I've always done.

    my fridge:-

    2 cauliflowers, 2 cabbages, curly kale, peas, runner beans, broad beans, lettuce, carrots(yes I'm OK with them!) cucumber, tomatoes, peppers

    raspberries, strawberries, blueberries, blackberries, gooseberries

    lard, butter, cream, whole milk, mayonnaise, salad cream

    Cathedral City cheese
    Red Leicester cheese
    Corned beef
    joint of beef- silverside
    ham slices
    bacon

    lots of bottles of water

    The next shelf belongs to other family members (I hate pepperoni, so I won't ever be tempted to steal the first 2 items!). The last 2 items are wrapped in bags because I would be tempted if I saw them every time I open the fridge

    Meat feast Pizza (has pepperoni)
    Pepperoni pizza
    pack of sandwiches(with egg, yuck)
    orange juice
    orange and raspberry juice
