What's in my Fridge? I'll show you mine if you show me yours!


I'm a nosey sort. I love when magazines show you what celebrities have in their fridges. They probably email across a list, a very edited list and then it's shot all bonnie, with everything carefully arranged, but I still love it.

So I'm happy to tell you about a competition Homebase are running, asking for photos of your fridge. They want a photo of your fridge door, but I'm hoping you'll let us have a look inside too.


 

What does your fridge door say about you?  

Snap a picture and show us how cool your fridge is for the chance to WIN some fabulous prizes including a new Bush Fridge Freezer. 

If you finish in first place you will have the option of choosing either a Silver or Black Bush Fridge Freezer. Our second place winner will an exclusive Leith's cookery course. For our third place prize, you'll get a Naked Wine Box (12 bottles worth £120) and for fourth place 3 lucky winners will get a Riverford recipe box of their choice.

How to enter:
  • Step 1 – Snap a picture of your fridge freezer
  • Step 2 – Share through your social media accounts (Twitter / Instagram), including the hashtag #KeepYourCool @Homebase_UK
  • Step 3 – That’s it, find your photograph in our gallery

 So are you ready to have a look in my fridge?
 

Actually you're lucky. My fridge can get a bit messy, but I tidied it up last week and I've managed to keep it tidy since then.



So what do I have in there? 
Let's start at the top.



Shelf 1:

Pickled onions, Branston Pickle; Cooks & Co roasted red peppers (my favourite), 2 large tubs of Provamel Coconut Soy Yoghurt, 2 large tubs of Provamel Almond Soy Yoghurt (I had a surprise delivery today along with a box of Zoku pop moulds), a bottle of chocolate sauce, raspberry jam, mixed berry jam, Baxter's Baby Beets (my beets of choice).




Shelf 2

A carton of orange juice, a carton of mango juice and 2 cartons of apple juice (I juice or blend every day but Graham and Cooper like a glass of plain juice in the morning before they start on my smoothies, I don't know why, but there you go), free range eggs, unsalted butter for baking, puff pastry, a wedge of brie, Activia blood orange and passionfruit yoghurts, petit filous, The Collective suckies (squeezy tubes of yoghurt, nice and natural too. I do love The Collective yoghurts, although these are for Cooper).





Shelf 3:

A big bag of kale for my smoothies, some ripe and ready pears (I have more pears in my fruit bowls, but they take ages to ripen, so I always treat us to some ripe ones we can tuck straight in to), Alpro dairy free yoghurts for Graham and Philadelphia (for bagels or toast).






Shelf 4:

Fresh beetroot, 2 avocados, a head of broccoli, fresh ginger, a bag of fresh mint and one of coriander and another carton of apple juice. These vegetables were in Fresha bags, which I'm experimenting with to see if veg lasts longer (it does seem to), but they are blue so I had to remove them for the photo.






Salad Drawer:

Carrots, assorted bell peppers, baby potatoes, courgettes and mushrooms.



My fridge door is a bit more of a muddle as you can see.

  • Flora (mum left it)
  • veggie style parmesan
  • cheddar
  • wholegrain mustard
  • ginger extract
  • whisky
  • pesto
  • Vitalite dairy free spread
  • Lurpak
  • mozzarella
  • halloumi
  • butter
  • Hillfarm Garlic Mayo
  • The Bay Tree Dill and Mustard Sauce
  • Sweet chilli sauce
  • brown sauce
  • tomato puree
  • ketchup
  • salad cream
  • milk
  • fresh raspberry sauce
  • smoked applewood cheese





 So are you going to enter the competition?

And more importantly are you going to show us your fridge?

If you're a blogger I double dare you to post the inside of your fridge to let us have a nosey. Let me know if you do and I'll include a link.

Go on it'll be fun.

In fact I'll add a linky at the bottom. Let's call it Fridge Spy
Link to this challenge in your post and add it to the linky below. I'll keep it up until the end of the month.


Now shut the fridge door you're wasting energy!

ps That's a tiger in Cooper's drawing. That's his tail hanging down, not a really long willy. I did ask him about it just to make sure!  


Disclosure: Homebase are compensating me for promoting this competition. I was not required to write a positive review and any opinions expressed are my own. Oh and I still want to see in your fridge!

  1. love seeing inside your fridge - it is very neat - I have had a bit of a clean out lately esp the jars that linger at the back of the top shelf - love your dairy and non dairy coexisting so peacefully side by side - I took a photo of my fridge that is in this post a few months back - it probably has changed slightly but I didn't take my fridge door. I gather than the competition is UK only as I couldn't imagine a fridge being shipped to Australia

    1. It's not always this tidy Johanna. Just good timing. I suspect UK only, but do link up to your fridge post.

  2. Oh my my, that's ordered chaos! I love it, but at the moment, it's totally the oposite of my fridge. I emptied it to clean it, since it was a bit rusty, but as soon as I get it back on speed, I will fill its tummy with all kinds of delicious stuff!

  3. I posted a what's in my fridge a few years back, but nobody replied as I was such a new blogger! Will be more than happy to do it again for Fridge Spy... when I've been shopping, cos it's full of leftovers right now...PS: Love all the veggies you have packed in!

  4. Ohhhh your fridge is sooo tidy!!! I love your initiative. I'll try to take a picture of mine this week-end, when the food will be delivered, so far there isn't much to share I am afraid.

    1. Thanks. It varies, sometimes it's great and sometimes it seems to have nothing useful in it

  13. I daren't take a picture of my fridge, far too messy! But I haven't seen the Flora Dairy Free before, is it vegan? How does it compare to Vitalite which is what I buy normally? X

    1. Hi Fran, no I am talking rubbish. My mum left that it's not dairy free at all, Graham often gets Pure or the dairy free vitalite. I prefer the vitalite, I don't think he minds which he has.

  14. Entered the linky and the competition. All the prizes are fantastic!
