Welcome to my fridge (and freezer)

I can’t wait until summer because we will be able to grow some of our vegetables and buy the rest from the old guy up the road. We call them Old Guy Veggies. We get cukes, corn (holy mother of god his corn is fantastic!!!), potatoes, and whatever else he has kicking around. I grew my own herbs last summer and some cherry tomatoes, and we planted a lot of garlic in the fall. We are definitely doing more herbs and A LOT more vegetables, because I won’t be working at the restaurant this year, which means more time for the important things–like gardening.

In the winter we scour for pink stickered (50% off) deals on organic fruit and veggies and stock up. Realistically, we have to buy non-organic a lot of the time because that’s all that we can get our hands on. I freeze the greens and use them for smoothies.

Here is a glimpse of what our fridge & part of our freezer look like today after my visit to the grocery store this morning:

The fridge.
The fridge. All of the fruit & veggies pictured here were half price. We buy vegan Becel because some of us can’t tolerate dairy products.
Organic greens for smoothies and the bread The Husband likes when we run out of the bulk flour that we get in QC.

More frozen organic bananas and gluten free bread.

I look forward to the freshness of this summer’s bounty.

Until then, one can’t beat scoring on pink stickers at Super Store… 🙂

    1. Thanks! 🙂
      I feel a sense of relief when we are stocked up on healthy food. There is no struggle to put something together that is good for us because everything in the house is!

    1. I find that they do. Even when the skins turn brown they are not mushy on the inside. I mean, eventually they will become soft just like any other fruit, but this certainly prevents fruit flies in the summer. 🙂
