Shame factor: Pretty low. If I was going to be embarrassed by anything it would be the fact that most of the condiments in my fridge should have been tossed years ago. A lot of people assume I cook because I write about food, but as you can see, I don't.
Contents of note: Full disclosure -- this photo is about a month old. With that said, my fridge still looks nearly identical today. I had a barbecue in late August, so I currently have a lot of hot links and sausage in my fridge, which is usually meat-free.
First shelf: Almond milk is a staple. So is the raw almond butter. Like I said, I don't usually have meat in stock, but sausages set up camp every now and then, along with all the trimmings -- like the jalapenos and horseradish you see. The fresh mozzarella is for friends I recently had over for dinner. I rarely spend that kind of dough on myself. There's also a year-old jar of pickled figs from Boat Street, Rose's lime juice for mojitos I never make, and some IPA a friend of mine brought over.
Second shelf: This is where the real magic happens. The middle shelf is where I have housed all of the hot links that didn't make it to the grill during my barbecue, and there are a lot of them! The tofu dogs and kielbasa are on the lower shelf. Next to the package of Cash & Carry hot links is a container of spinach leaves, some raw chocolate mousse, sauerkraut from Leslie Kelly (I still haven't returned her Tupperware container) and hot dog buns. Hiding behind all of this is some coconut oil, jam, salsa, pickled okra, peperoncini and cocktail onions. Not that long ago, I sustained myself on Bloody Marys every day Sunday.
Bottom shelf: Two bottles of wine (which have since been consumed) and some plastic containers of leftover sausage, as mentioned above. That's about it.
Contents not shown: My fridge door is full of expired condiments, however, the lower rung is bursting with some pretty decent bottles of white wine, champagne and sparkling rose.
What my fridge says about me: I try to eat healthy, but I love hot dogs and booze. And I'm lazy.
