Today I saw an ad in Bon appetit for a lovely Jenn-aire fridge. Perfect, styley, clean, full off awesome food... I want that life but will never achieve it. As I began to actually look at the ad I hit me that the "perfect" fridge in the ad in NO way looked like mine. This fridge has a glass bottle of milk and fresh cut figs. Mine has a plastic gallon and a mostly used jar of fig preserves stuffed waaaaay in the back - somewhere. Compare:
Where are the pickles, jams, mustards and endless bottles of half used condiments? Where are the left-overs, half eaten yogurt cups and take out boxes? This fridge looks more like a floral shop than food storage.
A cluttered mess. Casserole, a bowl with a hardboiled egg saved for the dogs, my DHs coffee cup (has to be a story there), and many, many jars. My juice is in cardboard - theirs is in a beautiful open pitcher. I have to wonder is the open peppers and olives in the nearby bowl are going to enhance the flavor of the juice. The beautiful serene fridge.. lovely but impossible.
How does your fridge stack up? Post a picture - I dare you.....
