Kitchen inventory: the fridge

With upcoming medical leave, which will include an anticipated month of UNpaid leave, I am literally taking stock today, of what I have, what I anticipate we will need, and formulating a list for shopping, while I still can.

First up: the fridge:

 Remember that this is a much smaller fridge that was swapped out for a dying, small fridge to begin with. Lots of jars of home canned items in there at the moment, along with individual containers with soup for example, for quick grab and go meals. Youngest 2 and I are home for Christmas bread, so having quick and easy items ready to go is nice.




 Left produce drawer: pkg of sliced mushrooms that need to be used, celery, parsnips, carrots, one grapefruit, one lemon
Right side produce drawer: a pkg of Romaine hearts, a pkg of organic baby salad greens, a red cabbage, 1/2 of a green cabbage


Stick margarine, soft tub margarine, butter, assorted homemade jams, some spices requiring refrigeration, 1/2 & 1/2, dairy creamer, assorted condiments such as Worcerstershire,Dijon mustard, lemon juice, etcc; mayonnaise, chocolate syrup, strawberry syrup (gotta push that, it's taking up valuable real estate. Kidlet asked for it, it sits. Grrr . .)pancake syrup, assorted homemade salad dressings.
 Inside freezer door: bottom shelf hold assorted pkgs of shredded cheese (some home shredded from Deli ends, some bought on sale), top shelf: lunch cold packs, fzn lemonade, 2 fzn OJ, 2 bags fzn plain beans.
Freezer compartment of fridge: top right: assorted, individual lunches such as soup, top left: fzn home prepared bags of precooked pintos, some hamburger buns, puff pastry, ice cube trays
Lower shelf: 3 large pkgs of fzn fish fillets (Pollock and Whiting), tub of homemade turkey gravy, yellow container with marinara, roll of pork sausage, large container of turkey stock (homemade)

Top of fridge where I store breakfast grains: 2 large canisters quick oats, a box of oat packets, assorted healthy cold cereals, cream of wheat whole grain variety, the remains of a box of pancake mix, wheat glutten, whole wheat flour, homemade "Bisquik"
