I'll Show You Mine If You Show Me Yours


Oh! My...well...this is really a bit personal, but...oh goodness, but I haven't even...if I'd known you were coming...


Oh, you really think so? Why, thank you! Well, alright. If you insist. Oh, yes, photography is fine...yes, it's organic coconut milk. I'm really very particular about those sorts of things!

You're doing an article? About me!? But, dear, I'm not even full-sized! And I haven't got a thing in my crisper!

Oh, this little old thing? Just a bushel of fresh baby garlic. Isn't it darling? I love how it compliments my sugar snaps. And these are Ronnybrook. It's very exclusive, but Ronnybrook is positively my favorite...every time Sunday rolls around, I can't resist getting dolled up in everything at the stand! Today I'm wearing the chocolate milks, a creamline yogurt, a bottle of heavy cream, and the newest crème fraiche. Dairy's all the rage, you know, and the bottles are returnable - isn't that quaint? Oh, and I can never resist the chocolate pudding, there on my middle shelf. It's not too sweet and positively to die for!

Exotics? Why yes, I do have a few of those...this jar here is candied ginger puree - have you ever heard of such a thing? And these other jars are rosemary-rhubarb jelly and ginger-black tea rhubarb preserves. I made them myself. I've got cold-pressed flax seed oil...and I've got some exquisite cheeses! I'm going through a soft cheese phase - see? I've got mascarpone and herbed goat cheese. But, believe me, I'm never without a good wedge of organic parmesan.

Excuse me? Have I got any unmentionables? Certainly not! And you shouldn't ask a lady such things! What? Those are sundried tomatoes! The sell-by date doesn't matter - they're very well sealed! And anyway, they - what? A butter-flavored product? I don't have butter-flavored products. What do you think I am, a Maytag? I don't know what you're talking about.

Alright, ladies and gentlemen, it's been a pleasure, but I think it's about time we - no! don't look at the door! You said the door was off-limits - it isn't even in the photograph! I - well, you have to keep those little packets somewhere!!

This interview with my fridge was conducted in honor of the first-ever "I'll Show You Mine If You Show Me Yours" event, hosted by Sweetnicks. The round-up will be posted there around next Saturday...check it out!

My refrigerator wants to date your refrigerator.

The organic coconut milk sounds incredible. Do you drink it???

Kate said...

I did drink it, in a manner of speaking - by mixing it in yummy pina coladas in celebration of the fantastic pineapple season we're having this year! I'll probably use the rest of it up on a luxurious body scrub...

Mom said...

Okay...You grew up in my house yet I have nothing in my fridge that you have in yours. How can this be! You are way out of your box! (pardon the pun.)

Kate,

I love that you keep your chinese takeout soy packets wrapped with a rubberband. :) My takeout place give me these ones in plastic containers that make my fridge a sticky place.

What a lovely and creative post!

I love your assortment of homemade jellies.

The comment from your mom made me have another look at my fridge and I pretty much have the same things. Lots of sauces and pickles and salsas. The brands may be different but I must cook like my momma.

I loved the cool interview.

You are fun! Your mom may not have the same things in her fridge but she sounds like she's got fun in her also. Glad to have found your blog.

This is an bet basketball American phrase and was coined by Joe Hill in 1911. Hill was a Swedish-born itinerant labourer who migrated to the USA in 1902. He was a leading light of the radical labour organisation The Industrial Workers of the World - known as the sportsbook Wobblies, writing many radical songs for them. The phrase appeared first in Hill's The Preacher and the Slave, which parodied the Salvation Army hymn In the Sweet Bye and Bye. The song, which criticized the Army's theology and philosophy, march madness specifically their concentration on the salvation of souls rather than the feeding of the hungry, was popular when first recorded and remained so for some years.
