Chad Kouri, what’s in your fridge?
Here it is! My very unexciting fridge. Margot Harrington and I live together so there is always a mix of stuff in the fridge. We like to bake a lot so the strange jar of white stuff on the top left corner is some starter for sour dough bread which is almost like a pet. We/Margot has to feed it and mix it on a pretty strict schedule. Behind that is a jar of left over coffee that I use as ice coffee some days. The beer is a little bit of a tease… Zombie Dust (a citra-hop ipa) is probably my favorite brew at the moment which is hard to find in chicago even though Three Floyd’s, the brewery, is just over the state line in Indiana. But in that case right now is Fat Tire. I don’t have a good reason for that at all other than I must like to bum myself out because every night I come home, open the fridge and for a half second I think there is zombie dust in the fridge.
Bottom shelf is typically some kind of leftovers. Right now it is a cabbage salad and some white beans. We cook a lot so we almost always have leftovers in the fridge. Also mini milks that stay good longer than a larger container for baking and sometimes cereal. And the bottom drawers are usually jam packed with veggies. When we cook we typically don’t have a ton of time to spend in the kitchen so we have some reoccurring dishes that we do once or twice a week. At the moment our favorite is a veggie bake where we just cram a bunch of different veggies in a bake dish with some olive oil and feta cheese (sometimes with eggs or bread in there too) and pop it in the oven at 375 for around 45 minutes. Gooood stuff.
