Fridge Challenge

Pam, over at Sidewalk Shoes, posted a photo of her fridge and I thought I would play along. I mean, what single thing says more about us... about who we are and what we like... than our fridges?
Well, except maybe our underwear drawer.
But I'm not going there. Unh huh. No way Jose!!
You'll have to be content with just the fridge.

Now Pam only posted a single photo.
Me? Well, let's just say that I'm the Queen of Over-Kill.
I do nothing by half-measures.

Yeah, yeah, yeah.... I hear you saying "But you posted boring photos of your fridge ages ago"... and yes I did. Thanks for noticing.
But things change, don't they?
Tastes change. Lifestyles change.

But in my case, nothings changed at all.

So, for your viewing pleasure, here we go....
A photo of my fridge.

Oh, that isn't what you had in mind?

Then how about this one?

Or this?

And THIS one?
Well, yes I DO have a fruit and veggie drawer. But I have two of them, so this one has a special purpose.
Can you guess what it is?

I seem to have a plethora of cans of coffee, cheeses, sliced Jalapenos and minced garlic, and a tub of margarine that I don't even use... but what can I say?
I'm serious... what can I say??
And the Hershey's chocolate?
That stuff has been in there since our trip to Melbourne in late January...
so I think I need to be congratulated.
I showed you mine... now you show me yours!
Just be grateful I didn't ask you to show your underwear drawer.

I love the chocolate drawer!!! I just wondered, are there things you can't get there that you really miss not being able to have? I sure hope you are feeling better!

Neas Nuttiness said...

Now I want to see a picture of your pantry. Girl, I just know that there is some Crisco in there!!!

The Old Dairy said...

Do you know what I should be my fridge...I kid you not.
At breakfast time I took all the living stuff out because it had walked to the front of the fridge.
Then closed it again. I was going to clean it out when I deceided to make a cuppa and catch up on some blogs. What do I see in large letters "Fridge Challenge".
Now the question I ask is, do you really want to see indide my fridge?
cause if it really says something about me it is this....i am a pig now get up and clean me out....
O by the way I'm going to get some new underware just in case.........

Pam said...

I think I need a chocoate drawer! Except mine doesn't last long enough to warrant a drawer.

The Blonde Duck said...

Have you ever seen Cribs on MTV? That's what this reminds me of.

SassyDog said...

Mrs Tweetie is so very pretty! I like the idea of a chocolate and wine drawer!! At the moment there are no veggies in my drawers in the fridge!

The Wife said...

Hmmmm, are you hiding the crisco in the underwear drawer? Me and Libby think alike!

Paula said...

My fridge is so nasty right now. It really needs a good cleaning..but it is something you really don't want people to see when it is dirty.

The Wife said...

Oh and thanks for the nice comments on my post today. I think you may need your eyes checked but that was very sweet of you!

Tatersmama said...

Yes... I miss things like proper sourdough bread, Ben and Jerry's,
bacon, Crisco and the list goes on and on. ;-)

Libby and Kit,
Girls, you KNOW that I keep the Crisco in my undies drawer! ;-)

Mandy and Paula,
So post a before and after photo. C'mon, I dare ya!
Believe me, we've ALL been there!!
I semi-cleaned my nastiness last night when I took the garbage out.
And Mandy... YES we really DO want
see your fridge!

Pam, I'm really good most of the time, but if I HAVE to have chocolate, I just eat the cheap stuff from the grocery store and save the "private stash" for special occasions. ;-)

The Blonde Duck, I had NO idea what Cribs was, so I went and checked. Now I'm going to go back and watch some!

Cathy said...

Hello TM
Well this post is very timely - its been a while!!
Since what I hear you say lol
I might just take the camera into the laundry (thats where the fridge lives in our house) and surprise it. Open wide, come inside.
Take care

Robynn's Ravings said...

I have already showed you, well sort of, my underwear so, a picture of the drawer might not be all that enthralling.

My fridge? Um, okay, I'll be right back, in about 3 days.

Paula said...

I saw Pam's post and realized there was no way I could ever post the chaos that is barely contained within my fridge! Same goes for the underwear. Yours looks brilliant, the refridgerator that is, especially with that chocolate drawer. So do the wee ones who play with the magnet letters on the outside know about the chocolately goodness hidden within? :-)

Homestay Mama said...

I have 2 refrigerators in my kitchen. Two drawers of vegetables and two drawers of fruit, but no Crisco in either one! And, no magnets on the doors. I'm afraid pics of my fridges would be too b-o-r-i-n-g. LOL

Staci said...

this is a great idea!! I LOVE IT!!

hershey kisses...thats soo me!!

Bz said...

You know, I think I'd rather show you my underwear drawer! ...not that our refrigerator has anything wrong with it... it's just that... I don't know... it's the inside... I have toddler leftovers and small meals... there's just so much covered that... well... it's not NEAT... and I am a recovering neat freak. Now the OUTSIDE, I can show and plan to do so sometime soon. I must say, I like the one section of your refrigerator... CHOCOLATE!

Bz said...

Say... I can't enlarge the pic (outside refrig) to see what the stuff on it is... perhaps it's to help with anonymity.

Tatersmama said...

Cathy... GO for it, girl! ;-)

Robynn... Do I hear chicken clucking noises?? You're on the clock, darlin'!

Paula... I just decided "who cares"? what others think. If I had bothered to clean mine up beforehand, it wouldn't have been "me", would it?
Like Popeye says... I yam what I yam what I yam. ;-)
And NO... the kids don't know what I've got stashed in that drawer (and neither does the old guy) so don't you go telling them! It's mine. All MINE!

Homestay Mama... Let us be the judge of that ! Who knows... it might just trigger a request for recipes that you use all the fruits and veggies in!

Staci, I'm saving those Kisses for Easter, but the kids are NOT getting their dirty rotten little lunch-hooks on them!!

Bz... That's the whole POINT darlin'! Luckily, I took my photo at the end of the week, right after I had thrown all the toddler meals and snacks out! But I still would have shown them if they were still there. ;-)

I cropped the outside of the photo so you couldn't see the mess of books and crap stacked on top of the fridge (away from the kids)... and then realized that it wouldn't enlarge. Ooops!

Treehouse Chef said...

Have you ever visited the perfect pantry (listed on my blogroll)? Well, she has people send in pictures and a post about their pantry and she posts them on her website. I think it is soo cool. I love looking in people's pantries and refridgerators. I think you should do Fride Friday's and post other people's fridges. Mine is empty compared to yours. I don't seem to stock my fridge like I do the pantry. Plus after two storms and no electricity (loosing all food) I am less inclined to stock a lot of things. Those condiments are so expensive. It costs a small fortune to restock.

Marjie said...

Hooray for the adult salvation drawer. Who says wine and chocolate can't peacefully coexist! I showed my fridge after I got a food delivery a while back. I believe it scared everyone half to death, trying to figure out how anyone could eat so dang much food! I'm glad to see we're not the only ones with magnetized letters on the front of the fridge. Even the big kids have fun playing with them.

Ladybird World Mother said...

!!! This is what I love about blogging... where else do you get to see inside someone's fridge... and enjoy it! Love you too, girl! X

The W.O.W. factor! said...

Ok, I noticed right off the bat! You are my kind of Lady! Best Foods Mayo!! And you get that all the way down in Oz???
Hersheys are a mainstay here, but I hide mine in my underwear drawer! Keeps the 'finders keepers' at bay!
Another thing...
your fridge has wayyyy may stuff in it than mine!

Linda said...

I'm still embarassed about my freezer picture. I'll think about it.

Tatersmama said...

Shhhhhh.... Do you hear that sound?

Bwarrrrrrrrk bwarrrk bwark bwaaaaaaaraaaaaack!

Is that the sound of CHICKENS I hear?
I thought so!

I'm still waiting to see yours!
