What's In Your Refrigerator?

As I looked in the fridge last night, I was so pleased with the 7 quarts of leftover Chicken Tortilla Soup.  We love this soup!
Anyway,  I had the idea to show you what I have currently in my fridge.

 This Italian soda is delicious.  I found it at a local discount grocer for $1.49 a bottle.  We had never tried this before so we bought two of the orange and one of the grapefruit soda.  They were both really good and refreshing.  All natural ingredients.

 We cook mainly from scratch around here - and I use a lot of the Better Than Boullion soup bases.  These are large organic versions from Costco that cost the same amount as the smaller jars from the grocery store.  Two kinds of salsa, because that's how we roll around here.  Fresh eggs, tortillas.

 Big can of 100% Columbian for my coffee lovers!  Real butter, cream cheese, buttermilk, condiments, chocolate syrup.

 Two Chobani yogurts
Cheeses - shredded mozzarella, shredded cheddar, and Farmer's Cheese.  So, so good.

 Lots of salad fixings.  We love salads around here!

 Gala apples and red grapes.

Our favorite grape juice.

What's in your refrigerator?


  1. After looking at your fridge, Mrs. Rabe, I know I need to clean mine out. Your post is a little kick in the seat of my pants to get to it. Love your header photos!

  2. WOW, I can guarantee mine isn't as neat as yours... but lots of the same things:) Enjoy your day dear friend, soup sounds good in snowy Georgia! HUGS!

  3. Thanks for the motivation to get my refrigerator cleaned, It has been on my "to do" list for a few days I have similar items and like you use real butter! I also try and use organic products whenever possib;e,I also enjoy Paul Newman's wonderful products. Enjoy your day.

  4. I like your refrigerator! No meat?

  5. Blogland will never see the inside of my refrigerator. Never.

    I will add this to my list of "Things I Admire About My Friend Deanna."

  6. It looks pretty neat and tidy and a good deal like mine (not the neat part) but the food part! Looks like you could get a meal made in a pinch from what you have there.

  7. haha! Mine is full of butter, cheese, milk, eggs, bread, oranges, veggies, condiments, and applesauce.
    And it looks pretty good. It needs some chocolate. lol!

  8. Would you consider sharing your recipe for the Chicken Tortilla Soup? It looks delicious and cozy for these COLD days we are having. Thanks!-Faith H

  9. A hot mess.

    Really, I like to keep a handle on it, but in recent weeks I have done more schtuffing in the fridge than is wise for me.

    And yet, I keep making more things in too great a quantity and schtuffing more in.

    Note to self: Clean out fridge by weekend.

    Note to Deanna: Chicken tortilla soup? Why, that happens to be schtuffed in my fridge (and freezer) right now as well. It's my ultimate comfort food, and I make a mean batch of it, too.
