by the contents of their fridge. Well, actually, they don't - I'm just being nosey! Although I do most of my shopping online these days, when I do venture into a shop, I must confess to enjoying a sneaky peak into people's baskets and imagining the story behind the contents eg new romance, a bad day - comfort eating, a diet/health kick etc.

If you were to be feeling a little peckish and open up mine today, you would find a half eaten big bar of Cadbury's Fruit and Nut, honey, hummus, some pesto, some Brie and Camembert, half a Cantaloupe melon, some grapes, milk, a couple of eggs, some blueberries, water, apple juice, 6 cucumbers (I'm doing a lot of juicing at the moment!), tomatoes, some salad stuff, greens, mushrooms, carrots, various nuts and seeds, and some yogurt.

So, please indulge my noseyitis and let me know what I might find in yours. At a guess, I think there might be some Sauvignon Blanc in Nuc's and some Stella in Dazzy's and Exile's, oh and some "just in case" Big Foo

I protest mu lady

Our fridge resembles yours due to the weird eating habits of the boss :? .

I have a separate Stella Artois embossed fridge for the essentials ;D .

How do you eat all that dodgy stuff mate? Not an animal fat in sight, ever likely you look like a cartoon rabbit XD .

have too agree with exile, your fridge content sounds hideous.
I generally cook a big pot of food like tuna pasta, chicken curry or spag bol and then spend the next few days eating the rest of it.
Then I have weetabix at some point during the day. I would also have either egg for omelet and beans and tined sardines on toast.
I usually like a roast chicken in the evening. I eat half and eat the rest the next day and give the dog some.

Because I work away Monday-Friday there doesn't seem much point in getting much food in to be honest, I just sort that at weekends.. That's food wise


But, in the fridge in my room upstairs all that's left in there are a few strongbows and Stella's... And 3 bottles of Prossecco (I was on a promise, So obviously needed the help of the 3am beer delivery service Saturday night.. Prosseco, all girls love Prossecco, I'll have 3 bottles... I fell asleep at 4am and she never made it to mine)

I don't even like Prossecco.. But ringing a booze delivery at 3:30 Sunday morning, you can't beat that..

Whisky marmalade yuck! Im off to mirror pool in france in july Carp fishing. Im taking shead loads of tinned food and worked out I might need 28 bottles of wine! I would rather a splif to be honest but Im not risking taking it over on the ferry or tunnel. So it looks like a drunken 2 weeks fishing and feeling like crap every morning.
Why they cant legalise weed I dont know!
Bananas are really good for you is my advice.

Surely you will buy the wine over in France, bongosdad. I may not be up on wine protocol but I'd imagine that you could get it for a third if the price.

28 bottles? Thought you were going for 2 weeks, not a long weekend :P .

Exiled. The boss sounds like she has impeccable taste. ;D If the contents of our fridges are pretty much the same, then you must get to eat lots of rabbit food "muck" too? Or do you just live out of the Stella fridge. :P

Bongo, just echoing Exiled - 28 bottles :O

Great story, Blackpool! Hope you get another promise soon! :D

Ha ha Churchy. Yes, I think I'd have conjured up something special in my imagination if I'd been next to you in the queue! My best friend lives o/s, is a bit of a chocoholic, but can't get Cadbury's where she lives so I send her Cadbury's parcels a few times a year to keep her going. If I'm buying from a shop, I do get sympathetic "a bad day, love?" from the checkout girls when they see a basket of chocolates and nothing else. :)

Oh and Yubby - "95% healthy" doesn't satisfy your sis's rather large nose so details please, if it's not too much trouble. :P ;D

Actually, I'm with you on the real butter thing, Exiled. Much better than that hydrogenated muck. Just didn't have any in my fridge on the day I did the post ...

Otherwise, yep, your corner of the fridge looks like the Caveman real deal. :D

Correct. Well done on paying attention in class today, bro. ;D

I think we could be related after all. Apart from the ham and salami, I'd be happy to have all those in my fridge.

The homemade peach tea sounds nice. How do you make that, then?

Cheers for that. I googled it and your right. We're now stopping at a french super market on the way. I wouldn't know what to buy but will be interesting. I usually go for cheep Australian or South African wine. They sell 3 bottles of blossom hill at the petrol station for 10 at the moment.

With the euro currently being sterling's b1tch you could fill the car boot with plonk on the way home as well. As much as you want if you say its for your own consumption (careful of weight restrictions).

All irrelevant of course if you don't like French wine. Then again after the 2nd bottle, it all tastes the same.

Well I've just put 18 cans of Stella in, well 17 to be exact :D

Peach ice tea, no different to normal ice tea.

But rather than using a regular a regular tea bag, I use Peach tea bags (2).

I haven't perfected the taste, at present I am adding approx. 300ml of fruit juice to a 2lt batch.

MissWinnie

Thanks for that bro. I don't like normal tea but I like the fruity ones. I've not seen peach tea for sale, but I'll look out for it. If I can find some, I'll have a go at making this when the weather warms up a bit over here - sounds really yummy.

Peach and Mango is the flavor I'm using 1 tea bag for 2 litres.

I tried a batch with desert spoon of honey today, now to sweet.

Will try 1 teaspoon next batch.

Very refreshing drink and better for you than cordial or fruit juice .

Fruit flavoured tea should be banned for over blandness and as an illusion to healthy living. ;D

MissWinnie

Hmm ... well, Mr Ozfan, Miss Winnie thinks you are fruity enough already, so will not be force feeding you her iced peach tea. ;D :D
