Fridge Sneaky PeekPosted: April 19, 2014
I’m completely guilty of being nosy when it comes to food – I love checking out people’s shopping carts full of groceries, or what lies inside the fridge or freezer of a friend’s house. (I’m nosy but not judgmental, I promise! It’s a fascination…)
Anyway, there must be other weird people out there like me so I thought you might like to see what’s going on in our fridge and freezer this week. The contents don’t change much week to week, especially now – but I imagine as Finn grows bigger and hungrier for real food, we’ll have to stock all his favorites! (His faves right now: blueberries, strawberries, avocado, eggs, sweet potato, mac & cheese, hummus, Happy Puffs, teething crackers)
So here we go… and apologies for the crappy phone pics!
TOP SHELF: organic cream cheese, plain YoBaby, pine nuts, Trader Joe’s hummus, greek yogurt, organic almond butter, organic tahini, maple syrup, pizza sauce, homemade purple cabbage salad with Trader Joe’s tahini sauce (SO GOOD – just those 2 ingredients mixed together)
MIDDLE SHELF: Martinelli’s sparkling cider, strawberries, Ezekiel tortillas, half an avocado for Finn, cut up mango, leftover frittata, Trader Joe’s goat yogurt, cooked sweet potato (in the foil, for Finn), organic tofu, ground up flax, Medjool dates
