Do you ever look at people and wonder not only what the inside of their houses look like, but other weird things like their closet, plates and refrigerator? Maybe I’m the only crazy person over here, but I am NOTORIOUS for looking at a skinny person and wondering what the inside of their kitchen looks like. Yes, I’m waving my freak flag today.
Who wants a sneak peek inside my mess of a kitchen?
#1. #1 is always the best and in our fridge–it’s candy. Sadly, this is all gummi bears. Mostly Haribo (the best there is), but a few other rogue brands that need not be mentioned. We all have our vices, right? I put the strawberries beside them this week to counteract my snacking.
“oh I’m craving Haribos, but oh look! There are fresh strawberries in here!” Maybe?
#2. The supplies for nachos. Nachos are pretty much the pinnacle of any good snack, am I right? So it’s fully necessary to always be stocked with the right products to make them at a moment’s notice. Maybe this is the real issue with my weight.
#3. Eggs. We eat a lot of ’em. It probably doesn’t help that Judy gets an egg in the morning, too, but I mean…what packs a bigger protein punch? Nothing.
#3.1 This is also our juice selection. We always have something in our giant drink container, because our pantry (as scary as our fridge) has about 6.7 different types of drink powder mixes. That bottle beside it is V8–another essential.
#4. Fruit, fruit and more fruit. Oh yes, and margarita mix. Limes count!!
#5. This is leftover central. Also known as the part of the fridge I never frequent. Typically, I put Dane’s lunch for the next day here in hopes that he will just take all of it, so it can stop staring at me. For some reason, the Luna bars are here currently. Rest assured, THOSE ARE MINE.
#6. Dinner prep. This area is always a disaster zone, because it doubles as the dinner prep area. See also: It’s usually empty and so it doubles as a catch-all for random things. You can see defrosted hamburger meat, but there’s also leftover chili, gluten free bread, yogurt and pumpkin puree.
#7. If you’re ever craving a meat and cheese platter, come to our house. We have no less than 8 different types of cheeses at a time, plus salami, pepperoni and prosciutto. I think meat & cheese platters with apples and almonds are the best snacks ever. Second only to nachos, of course.
I refuse to show a snap of the door (it’s an ugly mix of Diet Coke, alcohol & condiments). But tell me, are you ever as nosy as I am?
