Okay, so when I planned out on writing this post, I thought it would absolutely epic. Then, I took a look at my fridge (and this is how it photographed after doing the groceries), I realized, there’s not much to talk about.
Joe and I actually drop by the market and/or grocery store a few times a night, because we would much rather pick up fresh meat and bread for our dinner than keeping a stock of it at home. This attitude is very European of us (Joe’s side!) and the things we keep longest are usually in our pantry.
We consistently have bottles of water, cheese (top shelf, you can hardly see it), and fresh fruit (our snack for the week) but everything else changes depending on what we’re whipping up for dinner.
Our fridge door holds all of our condiments which we always keep a stock of (but we don’t have much of a variety because we like to keep it as simple as possible). However, my little section of Asian condiments throws an ode to my cultural background.
- Hoisin sauce – I can put this on everything (Asian-cuisine-wise, at least) and my friends always tease me for it. One of our best buds co-owns a Vietnamese restaurant and he always says that I’ll use up their entire stock of hoisin sauce on my plate
- Sesame oil – I actually didn’t have this in my fridge up until recently (my mom brought it over from home when she decided to make us some dumplings)
- Fish sauce – Key ingredient for getting some really great flavor in soups
- Lemongrass – Always need this for my famous Thai Coconut Shrimp Soup
And so… well, er… there you have it! What do you always have in your fridge?
