My Fridge


Well, in the spirit of New Year's resolutions and all that, I could decided this morning that I simply could not start 2009 with my fridge the way it was.  I had been reading lots of blogs where folks were brave enough to show the contents of their refrigerators, and they were always clean, neatly organized & filled with only "good" ingredients :)  
I realized there was no way I could let ANYONE see mine until I cleaned it up & got rid of some of the yuckies growing inside!  ;)  Gross!  I also went ahead & threw out those yucky salad dressings that I never ate anyway & were filled with so many things on my "bad" list: Corn Syrup,  Canola Oil & MSG!  
Ok, so it took a couple of hours because I also inventoried every last little thing and it was amazing how much tupperware & how many jars I freed up to store new "good stuff" in!
More later on the inventory & how I plan to use it...

I deep-cleaned ours recently too. There was some god-awful smell from some sludge beneath the crisper drawer. I still don't know what it was - and I don't want to know either!

I must admit that was a big part of why I finally got around to Cleaning Out & Re-Organizing my fridge, I simply couldn't stand opening the door any longer! LOL
Here's to brutal honesty in Blogging! ;)

Me? Well....I have a day job selling travel to beautiful far away lands, and I love to travel - my job sort of supports & feeds the 'travel monster' inside me. But my other inner monster is: food in all it's facets. I have a 13 yr old DS from a previous life, and married the lovely JoeBacon a three years ago! I finally became a home-owner at that point, we did a huge addition/re-model right away to make the house a bit bigger & I got a wonderful new kitchen out of the deal! I've gone thru Culinary School twice (mostly for fun) 'cuz I love to cook! And thru reading/doing the Maker's Diet 2 years ago, became aware of Sally Fallon, Weston Price, etc...and now after about 9 months of exploring their world, I'm trying to really make it all part of mine. I've had some things turn out great & others have been miserable failures, but I'm learning a LOT (mostly from my fellow NT Bloggers)!! Now I'm enjoying my yard, garden, sprouting, baking bread, brewing Kombucha, using raw milk, making Kefir & Yogurt & just trying to find small ways to make yummy food better for us.
