Today I’m joining in with the lovely Sonia from Natural New Age Mum and sharing photos of the inside of my fridge!
Long term readers of this blog may remember me doing a similar post all the way back in 2009, although I’ve enjoyed doing it again to see the changes and constants in my diet. I’m also a bit of a neat-freak when it comes to my fridge and it all comes back to preventing as much waste as possible. If it’s tidy you know what you have and you use it and don’t buy doubles of things! It’s another reason why I put most things in clear containers too.Let’s look at the main section of the fridge.
Top shelf is dairy – and what the hell, I count SIX types of cheese: mascarpone, ricotta, mozzarella, cheddar, parmesan and cream cheese. Plus, I usually have halloumi and fetta too. Maybe even some goat cheese or local brie. What an addict!
Also on the dairy shelf is my favourite five:am organic yoghurt (honey and cinnamon flavour!), greek yoghurt, thickened cream, anathoth passionfruit and lemon curds and the container in the back is walnuts – they keep so much fresher in the fridge!
Middle shelf is rockmelon, containers with leftover dried/glace fruits from recent xmas recipe testing, leftover four bean mix, medjool dates, sugar-free chocolate buttons, sicilian olives (my fav!) and mixed marinated olives. There’s also a block of Whittakers roasted hazelnut chocolate and some very overripe bananas destined for my dense and moist banana bread.
Bottom shelf is leg ham cured by my local butcher, local chicken breasts defrosting from the freezer (to make these rissoles), local watermelon (Poppy is obsessed right now!), local eggs and Bionade, a healthy soft drink I was recently sent to taste.
Top shelf is hoisin sauce, miso paste and a locally made product I got from the Lismore car boot market (which is awesome!) made of macadamias, ginger, garlic and chilli. Also, a few blocks of harmonie organic butter, it’s the best one from the supermarket I’ve found.
2nd shelf is condiments and jam – I love bonne maman.
3rd shelf is soy sauce, organic pureed tomatoes, juice, local North Coast (Norco) milk.
Last shelf is mostly japanese/asian sauces plus pickles, harissa, real maple syrup, prunes and Vitasoy soy milk which I’ve constantly got on the go as I create four recipes per month for them. The soy milky range is particularly nice and creamy.
We are vegetable fiends in this house, so the crisper is always overflowing. It’s pretty obvious what’s in there but I will say that we have about a dozen avocados and beetroot from our friends garden which are absolutely delicious! I love getting edible gifts from people who are clever enough to grow them.

So, what’s in your fridge and do you like to keep it tidy or chuck everything in?
