John Scalzi's Weekend Assignment #157: Exploring The Fridge

"Never pride yourself on knowledge. Remember; even a head of iceberg lettuce knows more than you do. It knows whether or not that light really does go out when the refrigerator door shuts."


Weekend Assignment#157: So, what's in your refrigerator? Be honest. If you include a picture of the current state of the fridge, that'd be nifty.

Extra Credit: What's the oldest thing in the fridge?

-John Scalzi (By The Way)

What's in my fridge? It's not all that exciting. When I opened it up yesterday, I took a long, objective look, and concluded, there wasn't nearly enough chocolate as there should be. There was however, lots of nice fruit, and salad mix. Some really tasty yogurt. Soda, both leaded and non-leaded. Because both Alan and I love to cook, there was quite a few interesting bottles and jars of exotic sauces, and condiments, not to mention 5 kinds of olives, and 14 different kinds of cheese. LOL. Yep, you read correct, 14 different kinds of cheese. :) We like cheese very much. Cheese makes the world go round. Cheese is our friend. Of course man, or woman, does not live by cheese alone, so below you will find a somewhat complete list of the items, which currently exist in my fridge, give or take a wheel of cheese...

14 kinds of cheese
2 bottles of Pepsi products
6 Yoplait Yogurt
2 bags of Fresh Express Salad Mix
1 Avocado
2 bottles of Lea & Perrin's steak sauce
1 Torani White Chocolate sauce
4 bottles Kraft Salad dressing
1 (24 pk.) Large eggs
1 Arm & Hammer baking soda
6 Kern's Fruit Nectar
1 jar spiced crab apples
1 pkg, Hillshire Farms Lil' Smokies
1 bottle BullsEye BBQ sauce
1 4pk. Kirkland unsalted butter
1 Country Crock Pumpkin Butter

Extra Credit: The oldest thing in my fridge, is probably the jar of spiced crab apples, I bought 2 years ago. :) The "use by" date gives me 2 more years. :)

Quite frankly, Carly, I don't care about the V8, or the Soda, or even the Bullseye BBQ sauce. I want a detailed listing of those cheeses. Mmm, cheese.

Ooh, a couple I'm not familiar with. Here's one from me. Beemster. It's a firm, ripened, Dutch cheese. One of my favourites for a wine and cheese platter. Check it out if you get a chance.

I didn't commit to this house I live in until I had found a store nearby that carried what I consider to be a proper selection of cheeses.

I should probably add "I'm French" to this, but I don't really need to.

A similar quandry concerned the butcher, but I look dumb enough already.
