Fun Monday# 27

This week Amy wants.....
'to see INSIDE our refrigerators. She wants to see them in all their glory without cleaning them out. However empty or full'.

Back in March I actually did a post on the content of my fridge and I could so easily have just left you with this link as nothing much has changed. However, I took fresh photos last week and I did not tidy or clean, I just opened the door and snapped. I'm really such an unimaginative cook and tend to buy the same staple foods each week, this includes a lot of fruit and vegetables. I share my fridge with my mother and she has the shelf with the tins on it. She enjoys her prunes, peaches and custard!!
The white dish contains the Briam I made last week and alongside are Toulouse sausages and bacon, just realised I must use those up today- I will have to make a Sam special
Nothing very exciting in the door the pot of cream has been used to make this dish devised by Cookiecrumb. If you read this Cookiecrumb Embee liked it a lot so I'm sure I will be making it again!!
The more unusual thing I have in the water bottle, alongside the salad dressings, is a culture of Kombucha (Lonevity Tea). You can learn more about this unusual mushroom here. I keep meaning to make a brew!!
This last picture is one of two small fridges we keep in the cellar for drinks and overspill. At the moment this one only contains my bulk buy muesli and almonds. Oh and a few bottles!
I'll be over to snoop into all your fridges soon. By the way I'm hosting again next week so hope you will sign up! SEE BELOW

That's looking quite empty for you, I'm sure it will be back to bursting at the seams next week.

Mine is the same... =)

I'm glad I didn't participate this week - so far all three I've seen are very neat compared to mine! ;-) THANK YOU for the link to Sam's recipe - I hadn't seen it. I've had organic Toulouse sausages sitting in my freezer for months and no idea what to do with them. Also have lentils so now I have dinner planned for tomorrow! ;-) You think it's ok to use red lentils instead?

With the Briam, Toulouse sausages. and baked Zucchini, you seem to be a creative cook to me. Your refrigerator looks quite tall.

Glad to see Granny get a mention. She hasn't featured for awhile and I was wondering if she was well.

 
At 30/7/07 12:10, Blogger ChrisB said...

beccy it will if I can think up enough menus!!

deborah I'm sure it will be fine with what ever type of lentils you use. I won't forget to add you in for next week :) PS I actually cut my sausages and bacon into small chunks (I think sam might suggest browning them whole and then cutting into pieces).

mjd it could be the angle I took the photo and it does have a small freezer unit underneath which I didn't show.

Barbara she's doing OK really but quite frail only goes out once a week if her friend takes her.

What a bonus ! Not only did we get a peek into your refrigerator, but you provided recipes for all of its contents. Interesting recipes. Some I've never heard of but will have to try a couple of them out. Will pass on anything with a mushroom. EEEKKK! Have a great week.

 
At 30/7/07 13:02, Blogger ChrisB said...

swampy - I feel that way about this particular mushroom which is why it just sits there in the bottle!!

 
At 30/7/07 13:25, Blogger Asha said...

That is a huge fridge you have Chris! Your mum has great taste!:))

 
At 30/7/07 14:00, Blogger Jenni said...

Those recipes look interesting. I think I'll have to try them.

 
At 30/7/07 14:01, Blogger willowtree said...

Hmmm, you have food in yours, what a novel idea.

 
At 30/7/07 14:08, Blogger Melanie said...

Looks neatly organized and full of food!

 
At 30/7/07 15:19, Blogger Sayre said...

I really must wear my glasses when I read these... I thought you said you had two fridges in the cellar for the drunks.

 
At 30/7/07 15:24, Blogger JennieBoo said...

I didn't know you could freeze torillas! Guess I learned something today.

Very nice fridge.

Happy Fun Monday!

 
At 30/7/07 15:43, Blogger Rachel said...

Very interesting post!! Thanks for putting receipes out there!!

 
At 30/7/07 15:52, Anonymous Lisa said...

I see you still have some items left from your guests (the Nemo containers!)
I need an extra fridge for my overflow, too, great idea.

 
At 30/7/07 16:18, Blogger ChrisB said...

asha it's quite small compared to some of the lovely fridges I have been looking at today :)

jenni I get a lot of very good recipes from th efood blogs I read.

WT according to embee he never has anything to snack on in the fridge!!

melanie not a lot of meat though but today is my shopping day!

sayre hehe very good- one is used by the 'drunk' in this house and it's not moi!!

jenniboo sorry I'm puzzled ' freezing tortillas'??

rachel we are a family who enjoy food!!
lisa luckily those yoghurts had a long date

 
At 30/7/07 16:27, Blogger Beckie said...

The comments are always so entertaining! Like I have said in most of the comments I have made - looks like a normal fridge to me!

It does look like a tall refrigerator.

 
At 30/7/07 17:31, Blogger Kaytabug said...

It still looks like you have a decent amount of food in there! Neat and organized too! I will be checking out the links to the recipes soon!

 
At 30/7/07 17:53, Blogger Tiggerlane said...

Thanks to you, I've received a huge education. And I'm feeling guilty about eating out all the time, when good things can be COOKED at HOME...

 
At 30/7/07 18:27, Anonymous Christine said...

Thanks for the recipe for Briam. I love Greek food, and my husband loves vegetable dishes. He'd love it topped with some Feta cheese. Mmmmm....it's almost lunch time here.
We freeze our bread and tortillas here too.

Happy Monday!

Are you sure you didn't clean this out before taking the pics? I'm quite impressed!

 
At 30/7/07 19:24, Anonymous nikki said...

I feel so nosy when I'm peeking into everyone's fridges! It's like I now know what everyone has for midnight snacks!

 
At 30/7/07 20:18, Blogger debi said...

You for sure have some healthy goodies in there. Love those strawberries.

 
At 30/7/07 21:08, Blogger my4kids said...

Your fridge is fuller then mine but much cleaner.....

Chrisb you don't have to be very creative to guest blog on my blog. After all I'm not very creative either! Just letting you know...

 
At 30/7/07 21:39, Blogger Mischief Monkey said...

I hope there is lots of yummy food 4 when I come(lots of yoghurts)!!!!!

 
At 30/7/07 21:53, Blogger ChrisB said...

Mischeif Monkey which type of yoghurts would you like me to get? I got lots of goodies for the biscuit cupboard today. What flavour crisps are you and Dillon into is it still salt and vinegar. When you get back from Rosslaire send me a list. Have a good time love grandma xx

 
At 30/7/07 22:07, Blogger ChrisB said...

beckie it's very ordinary and has a freezer section underneath (didn't take picture don't know why)

katabug I can cram a lot into a smallish space when I have to you should see it today after I shopped!

tiggerlane I assure I would eat out more if I could afford it and better still I wouldn't have to clean the oven then!!

christine hope you try the Briam because it's simple to make the effort goes into chopping the veg!!

susan all the mucky shelves are hidden by food!!

nikki you will always find plenty of fruit to snack on in my fridge but not too much else!

debi I'm a fruit fanatic and just love now we have our strawberry season.

my4kids Is beccy guest blogging for you??

Great post, enjoyed getting the links to the recipes. I love to cook so might try some of those out. The tea sounded interesting. I love tea. But probably will pass on that particular tea!

 
At 31/7/07 01:53, Anonymous Joy T. said...

Wow, so nice to share recipes. Love it. And...is that Nemo yogurt I see in there?? Soooo cute!

 
At 31/7/07 02:55, Blogger la bellina mammina said...

very neat Chris!!

 
At 31/7/07 02:55, Blogger Pamela said...

prunes, peaches, and custard.
those sound like three kinds of kisses.

Now just sit there... read it and move your lips.

.... see, I told you so!

 
At 31/7/07 08:05, Blogger ChrisB said...

theotherbear I think you are right to pass the tea tastes horrible!!

jot t nemo yoghurt not eaten by my grandson when he visited!!

la bellina mammina thank you

pamela you're right how do you manage it, I think my mother would rather like 3 kinds of kisses. A few years ago she answered an ad for 'companionship' and some guy, about 20 yrs younger than her rang up,-can you believe it-companionship I don't think so-hanky panky more like !! I soon put her off -now who's the mother here!!

 
At 31/7/07 08:40, Blogger Beccy said...

Hey why didn't you tell me about granny and the hanky panky man?

 
At 31/7/07 08:55, Blogger ChrisB said...

beccy I thought you knew about that. I am surprised to see you on the computer. Have a nice few days speak when you get back xx

 
At 31/7/07 10:51, Anonymous Hannah said...

It doesn't look to me like you need Mr H to come and clean it for you and it's so organised :)

 
At 31/7/07 10:51, Blogger Robin said...

Yum, Toulouse sausages!

 
At 31/7/07 10:57, Blogger ChrisB said...

hannah but it's the bits that can't be seen that need the cleaning !!

robin "tasty tasty very very tasty' (song)!!

Your fridge looks so organised and tidy compared to mine! With two freezers but just one fridge and 6/7 of us to feed all the chilled food is piled up and balanced in the fridge to make it all fit. The problem is having to shift it all around when looking for something! I could really do with one of those huge American refridgerators. The milk needed daily alone takes up so much room....maybe we should get a cow!

 
At 31/7/07 14:45, Blogger ChrisB said...

HC Now a cow that's a novel idea!! I hate all the shifting around and inevitably I lose something and only find it when it's out of date and end up throwing it away!!

 
At 1/8/07 02:40, Blogger cookiecrumb said...

Oh, Chris, I am beyond flattered. I want to eat that baked zucchini again soon, but my garden is not cooperating.
(Let's not talk about my fridge. Trouble.)

CC I will be making it again as embee liked it so much so thank you.
