Friend Makin' Mondays: What's in your fridge?

FMM is a regular feature from the fantastic blog All the Weigh, which I heartily recommend!

  1. List a few common items that can always be found in your fridge. Milk, eggs, and shredded cheese are the only very consistent things. I often shop sales, so it changes regularly.
  2. What kind of milk do you drink? Skim. I'm so used to the taste that I'm not sure I could go back to whole milk.
  3. Do you prefer fresh or frozen vegetables? Fresh potatoes, but frozen everything else. Because I'm only feeding myself, most of my fresh veggies tend to spoil. I never can seem to eat them quickly enough. Frozen veggies, on the other hand, last ages without going bad, so that I don't lose money and food.
  4. What do you currently have to drink in the fridge? Water, milk, Lipton Diet Green Tea, a few Honest Teas, a few gatorades, SoBe Lifewater, and Fuze. What can I say? I like variety!
  5. How often do you clean out your refrigerator? Every week when I take out the trash. I always check the fridge before I close the bag.
  6. What’s the healthiest thing in it right now? Hm...probably the frozen broccoli in the freezer. Most of the foods are pretty healthy, but the broccoli is probably the best. The Greek yogurt might be healthier, but I don't eat it as often.
  7. What’s the most unhealthy thing in it right now? A couple boxes of Girl Scout cookies that I usually forget to eat but can't bring myself to throw away. I like to have two or three cookies after dinner on occasion.
  8. What do you wish you had in it that you don’t have now? Good question! I wish I had some Lean Cuisine individual pizzas. Those are delicious.
  9. How often do you shop for groceries? Once a week or less. My pantry is fairly stocked, so I only shop to refill things that run out, like milk or eggs.
  10. What’s the weirdest thing in your fridge right now? I'm not sure I have anything that would qualify as "weird" right now. I do have a few Earth Balance "vegan buttery sticks" leftover from making vegan stuffing balls a few months ago. At Whole Foods, the "vegan buttery sticks" (which I swear is the name on the package) were cheaper than the regular butter, so I gave it a shot. They tasted fine in the stuffing balls, but I haven't been brave enough to try them on just toast or a roll.

Your turn!


  1. I actually have Earth Balance on my list of stuff to try! Since going veg*n last month I've had no problems cutting out meat, but I still have some lingering dairy stuff I have to get rid of (and of course, those girl scout cookies ;))!

  2. @Laura It tasted fine in a recipe. I tried to eat it on toast once, but it was so difficult to spread that I had to throw the toast away. I had ripped it to shreds by trying to spread the buttery stick! It might have been easier if the it weren't so cold, but I don't have one of those neat butter holders that people can keep out on the counter.

  3. Keeping frozen veggies (and fruit like berries!) is a great option when it will spoil before you can eat it all. I like a lot of foods my family doesn't so I do the same thing. :)
