beyond the fridge door - time to share your hidden secrets

I missed Wendy’s expose of bloggers fridge doors last month. But inspired by a memory I have on the contents of said fridges I thought I’d belatedly share the whole caboodle.

Twenty years ago I rocked up to a house interview. One housemate was absent but the other did a great job at telling me how they lived. In the end he just said, “look inside the fridge”. And that was that. I knew I could live with this person. And eat well too.

(Andy you know who you are, if you’re lurking out there – don’t be a stranger!)

While Wendy explored the doors of fridges (which if Jung or Freud were around now, am sure they’d be equally fascinated with), I’m daring you to go further. Take a candid shot, no rearranging or waiting for a better moment, of the inside of your refrigerator (ice box or esky) RIGHT NOW. I dare you to post it.

My pictures are a little blurry but you get a good snapshot of how we are eating right now. At least at the front of the fridge, it would take too long to document each shelf. And anyway, I suspect some scary things are lurking back there!

If you get the urge to share this window to your soul stomach, post your pictures on your blog this week and leave a link back to your post in my comments. Will do a round up in 8 days.

Click on the images in my much neglected Flickr photostream for details and more fridge images.

What does this fridge say about the SE and me? More on info on flickr

Come on inside..Comes with 18 exciting notes in Flickr

...and have a drink. Once more the Flickr notes try to make sense of it.

Now? But I'm just back after a few days away! My fridge is entirely devoid of fresh stuff.

Will take one anyway. But am also going to take another after I've been shopping tomorrow. :)

funny how i stumbled upon this post today. i love peeking into people's fridges but it's not easy to explain to them what you're doing photographing them...

Here's a look into mine - in the winter:
and in the summer:

Thanks Kiwi - its great to see a little seasonal variation.

Wendy - good on you :) Nothing like having some staples. I also have tahini, tofu and so many jars of condiments that you can turn next to nothing into a meal.

I don't know why I'm such a sucker for this ... my absurd number of notes makes you look very restrained however! Fridge Pron is here

Jees, this is why I never get up for work on time; I'm too busy staying up late working on weird things like photographing my refrigerator...

Thanks for this strange invitation... enjoyed by someone all the way on the other side of the globe!

I'm loving meeting you all from around the world and seeing inside your fridges.
...and it turns out I'm not the only one into this! Phew.

yours looks so inviting and well-adjusted...and, well delish. Mine is dysfunctional and chaotic at the moment, (perhaps it does reflect its owner somewhat).

In fact, I suspect my fridge may be positioned over the hell-mouth.

Thanks for your comment, AOF! Sorry for my assumptions about you and small towns in the Pacific Northwest. One thing I learned on my trip to Australia (and other countries), is that, if any culture suffers from provincialism, it's mine! The scribe of the chalkboard menu on your most recent post notwithstanding, of course.

I like the style of your blog; hope you don't mind being the next addition to my blogroll...

Damn! My fridge contains cheese, eggs, some asparagus, fennel, broccoli and condiments. We are off to flashpack in SE Asia for a month and I have run our supplies down to zero.

Why not make this a seasonal event? I'll show you my burgeoning fridge in summer if you'll show me yours.
