I was tagged by Chelsea of Ramblings of a Native Vegan Mecca Girl to show the inner workings of my freezer. Now, before you look at the picture, let me warn you ... it's a little disorganized. I'm typically a very organized person (even bordering on OCD), so letting ya'll into my messy freezer is a little like having company over the house the day before cleaning day. But since you are all good friends, I'm sure you'll overlook the mess, right?
Everything is pretty much crammed in here, but it's your typical vegan freezer — Ezekiel Bread and Buns, Boca Chicken Patties (the vegan ones), Amy's Bistro Burgers, Purely Decadent Coconut Milk Chocolate Mint Ice Cream, Ciao Bella Lemon Sorbotto (THE BEST STUFF EVER!), frozen veggies and containers of frozen meals from the recent past. And of course there's the almost-empty bottle of Bacardi 151.
I also took a shot of my inside freezer door, but it was REALLY unattractive ... all frozen veggies in plastic baggies crammed this way and that. So I'm not showing that one.
Since my fridge much more organized than my freezer, I'm going to show you that too. But in exchange, I'd like to start a new meme asking any willing participants to bare their fridges as well.
Here's one shot (click on it for a closer look):
Top shelf is mostly jams, spreads, relishes, and pickles. Notice the big pink jar of pickled turnips next to the tahini jar ... I had to buy some after trying them at a local Middle Eastern restaurant. So good!
There's a couple logs of Teese (thanks Daddy!), some apples, and soy yogurt, as well as Earth Balance and probiotic powder. And lots of leftovers .... I actually even took some out for the shoot cause they were blocking the good stuff. Bottom shelf is iced green tea, cold water (I removed the filter from my Brita pitcher because Memphis has some of the cleanest water in the world ... 'bout the only thing clean in this city, but at least we got somethin'), some German white wine, whole wheat pastry flour, and soymilk. And there's a big ol' butternut squash in the crisper with celery, onions, and dill.
Now for the door (again, click to enlarge):
As you can see, about half of these condiments are hot sauces. That's because my friends who used to live in my house left them behind (Tim was a hot sauce freak!). There's also soy sauce, Liquid Smoke, lemon juice, Vegenaise, my favorite Organicsville Non-Dairy Ranch Dressing (a staple in my house), and Amy's Goddess Dressing ... the bottom shelf is mostly liquor (including Absenthe) left behind by the previous residents.
So, what's in your fridge? I wanna know. I'm tagging anyone who has any of these items in their refrigerator:
1) A log of Teese
2) More than 2 bottles of hot sauce
3) Something pickled that's not a cucumber
4) Packaged condiments from a fast food joint
5) A winter squash
If you have any of these items, take a picture of your fridge, post it, and tag some more people. Or if you don't have these items but still wanna show off your junk, go for it.
