At this time of year, I don't even want to go there...b&b pickles waiting to be pickled, cabbage waiting to be turned into kimchi and sauerkraut, condiments up the ying-yang, and that is only the upstairs fridge...do I dare check the downstairs fridge? Not without a Hazmat suit...

I've never heard of that before
I predicted those questions! Salad cream is a kind of more runny, piquant mayo (with some vinegar) - goes great with lettuce, boiled eggs and tomatoes. It seems to be a UK product; some people take it with them on holiday. It was in danger of being made obsolete but public demand has kept it in the shops.

I don't keep all my spices in the fridge (I have a vast collection). I read that these spices (i.e. fennel seeds, chilli powder, ground ginger and cayenne pepper) were best kept chilled since they are more inclined to deteriorate. I welcome feedback on this.

Yes but, whilst a photo of fridge contents is interesting, I favour this thread. Being a UK resident, I would not recognise many of the bottled condiments/sauces. At least, if they are named, I can google and find out a bit more.

I have that problem quite often.

I keep opening the refrigerator door every few minutes hoping the contents may change, it never does!

I have way too much stuff in my fridge to list it all. However, it might be a good idea to do an inventory. Maybe.

I've never heard of keeping those spices in the fridge. In particular, the fennel seeds should be fine in a cabinet because they're whole. On doing some research, I see that there are some websites that recommend keeping spices from peppers in the fridge. It hasn't been a problem for me up to now, so I'm going to keep them where they are; it's much easier to grab a bunch from the one cabinet when I want to make a blend.

The only similar thing I do is keep poppy and sesame seeds and nuts in the freezer because they have a high oil content which can go rancid fairly quickly, especially in our hot and humid climate. I also keep toasted sesame oil and rice vinegar in the fridge.

I shopped two stores today. Guess I was a bit too excited to get back to Market Basket, and the store at the corner had chicken legs for 59 cents (one package for later this week, one for the freezer for Brunswick Stew this winter) and the best steak we've had in years not bought from the butcher who raises his own cattle. Anywho, Himself said our refrigerator looks like a game of Jenga and he won't go in there until I thin things out a bit. BTW, the two doors are just as full as the body of the 'fridge.

Darn you K-girl. Now I had to do an inventory.

Top shelf.

Baking Soda
Capers
Thai Red Curry Paste
Lucy's Ear Drops
Yeast
Bacon Fat
Chicken Fat
Maple Syrup
Hot Picante Sauce
Heavy Whipping Cream
1/4 cans Cat Food

Next shelf down.

1 can Root Beer
Milk
4 1/2 gallon jugs of water
1/2 gallon Hummingbird Mixture
1 pint Blue Gatorade

The shelf under that.

10 Dr. Peppers.
Leftover Taco meat. (That's tonight's dinner over rice)

Deli Drawer.

Parm , Cheddar, Swiss, Mozzarella, and Velveeta Cheeses.

Crisper Drawer.

Lettuce & Spinach. (Looks kinda empty)

Space between crisper & deli drawer.

1 doz. Eggs
Mushrooms

The Door.

Top shelf down.

Butter
Cream Cheese
.........................
5 mustards
Sweet Relish
Bread & Butter Pickles
Dill Pickles
.........................
Horseradish
Olives
13 Hot Sauces
........................
BBQ Sauce
Vermouth
A1 Sauce
Lime Juice
L&P Worcestershire Sauce
L&P Bold Steak Sauce
Oyster Sauce
General Tso's Sauce
Heinz 57
Strawberry & Apricot Preservers
............................

Lemon Juice
Soy Sauce.



A fridge is in a state of flux so a few months ago isn't the same as today.

I said darn you K-girl at first but now I say thank you for making me see what needs or can be used.

And to count my blessing for being able to have a fridge so full yet at times seems empty to me.



Now please don't start a thread asking what's in the freezer.



Oh Buckytom, Are you really sure the light actually goes out when you shut the door?

Okay it recorded nothing.

Is that because there is nothing in there?

We can help if you'd like. Lots of kind folks here who would be more then happy to start a Pay-Pal account in your name.

Now about "the darkness took control."

We're still talking bout your fridge correct?

If not we still might be able to help.
