Today was my last day at work before my four week holiday. Yay! I’ll be staying at home most of the time. Yay! A lot of projects to finish and a lot to start. Yay!
When I asked what kind of posts you’d like to see on my blog quite a few of you said you wanted a peek into my fridge. I’ve said it before, I’m not a foodie and with Martin and Wille having been gone for a couple of weeks on adventures I hope you’re not expecting much food in there, right?!
This is the fridge/freezer itself. It’s one of the few splurges in our house so far. We changed the not so fresh (understatement, considering the house hadn’t been lived in for over a year) fridge/freezer which was there and got an inexpensive Whirlpool. We figured, how bad can a cheap fridge be? A fridge is a fridge, right?! Not. After a few weeks the plastic shelves started breaking and when complaining to the Whirlpool people we were more or less accused of breaking the shelves on purpose. Why would we want to do that? Needless to say we’ll never buy another Whirlpool appliance ever again. We do love our Miele though.
It’s not very big, but there’s plenty of room enough for food and drinks for the three of us.
This drinks dispenser is one of my favourite US buys. It’s from Martha Stewart Kmart, I’ve had it for years and I love it.
Another fridge fave is the cheese dome. It’s not very attractive but works beautifully. A lot of the times we leave the cheese planer in there together with the cheese.
There are two vegetable drawers and in one we keep root vegetables. I again use ice cream containers as dividers. Carrots in one and potatoes in one. Any other root veggies simply go on top, like Ms Horseradish cuddeling next to Mr Carrot.
In the other we keep the other veggies. Peppers and cucumbers are our favourites.
Martin is very fond of spicy sauces so his Tabasco’s, Sambal Oelek’s and some other odd, spicy and hot foreign buys share space inside of the door with other bottled cooking ingredients.
Here are other fridge fave’s of mine. My US bulk buys, the squeeze bottles. I use them here in the fridge but also for cleaning liquids around the house. And cheap but delicious Aussie Chardonnay, my summer drinking choice.
