I'll Show You Mine If You show Me Yours

Yes, it is a mess. Well, this was taken just after the Memorial Day weekend of 'Grillin and Chillin' with way too much food prepared and as a result, my refrgerator is loaded with left over BBQ and what ever other usual suspects. Looks like a horror but it is filled with such good treats. I planned on sorting out everything so that I could freeze some of the meat for those later days when you just don't feel like cooking but laziness crept over me and so- it is what it is.

Sweetnicks is hosting an event where all you have to do is take a picture of your open refrigerator and post it. Get it? The theme is meant to highlight those unique items you hoard or can't do without and those items which you have had for ages but never got around to using up.

A plastic bag with prepared Roux just in case I want to make some Gumbo. I've had this since around December when I made Gumbo for my neice's Christmas party.
This container of Miso has been in here for over a year. I really must toss it.
What do you do with all those little ketsup and hot sauce containers from fast food restaurants. I actually did use a couple of these this weekend to make a homemade BBQ sauce.
Seasoned Rice Vinegar and Heavy Cream are staples in my refrigerator.
This container of VERY hot sauce (Pure capsaicin) has also been in the refrigerator for a number of years. It comes in handy when the grownup guys play 'I can stand hotter food than you'.

Yes, Crystal hot sauce but if anyone can find the wing sauce let me know. I'll travel 50 miles for a bottle of that.

Sylvie said...

Yes, it is Crystal hot sauce. I should say my refrigerator is never without this also. Moon, sorry no wing sauce.

Hey, did you notice I had Crystal hot sauce too? It's a classic. You're being too hard on yourself, your fridge is not that messy! I'm just a little bit obsessed with having things organized.

doesn't every good cook have Crystal in their fridge......that's hot sauce not wine.
Sylvie your fridge is just like mine was before it died.

I should have included the Crystal hot sauce as one of the items that is always in my refrigerator. It's one of those things that you always grab for and the thought that it wouldn't be there never crosssed my mind. I put it on some many diferent foods. My son loves it so much he could almost drink it by itself.

Hmm...I keep my Crystal in my cupboard...I'll have to check the label.

I want to know about that roux! Can you really make some and keep it in the fridge for forever???

Sylvie said...

Erika, I wouldn't use the roux. It's just one of those things I found in the refrigerator that I needed to toss. I have kept some for about a month and used it, but never for 6 months (though it looked and smelled ok).

Gabriella True said...

Pure Cap? sounds deadly! Great fridge. So funny that you still have that roux.

Wow those are big bags of mini ketchups and things... we dont really get those things here, its fun to see how other people live :) The kwark is a soft cheese product which is often used as a replacement for sour cream, it tastes just like sour cream/creme fraiche. i think you would be able to find it somewhere in your grocery but in English its either quark or creme fraiche :) nice of you to stop by!!
