If You Looked in My Fridge…(and an update)

Looking through some of the questions in the 300 Writing Prompts book, I think I’m going to really enjoy this one. Not that I don’t like what I’ve seen in the Would You Rather Questions book. Because I do. But some of the writing prompts just resonate a little more with me. And some are just fun. Like this one…

‘If you looked in my fridge right now, would you find?’ 

Just off the top of my head, a carton of 18 eggs, 2 pounds of bacon, 4 big packages of ground beef, a big package of chicken breasts, condiments, a loaf of lower carb bread, root beer and cola (not mine), juice (again, not mine), and butter. Maybe a science experiment or two but I just cleaned it out last week so maybe not quite yet. 

Now it’s your turn. What’s in your fridge. 🙂

Sorry, I asked Aria which one she liked better – the owl and the fridge or the elephant in the fridge. It was a tie so both are here today. 🙂

I am adding something here – and hoping not to jinx myself but… Maybe I should whisper it, just in case… 

There might be a light at the end of the tunnel. 

Proof of miracles: a serious infection that was thought to be a problem isn’t there. Another serious problem isn’t as serious as first thought. A third is under control with the correct meds. And my life might return to normal! Or at least mostly normal.

And I’m glad. Since I can’t seem to get enthused about other writing projects, I’ve revamped one I’ve worked on off and on – until I’m really looking forward to starting it. Instead of just being a regular old series, it’s going to be about the descendants of a town’s founding family, mostly set in modern time – but who knows. If it works out right, there may be a book or few set in the past.

  1. I’m glad to hear the patient’s condition seems to be doing better. I hope things will finally get better and everyone can get back to normal. It is HARD when everything is up in the air.

    I don’t know who voted for the elephant in the fridge, but that’s my personal favorite. 🙂

    You have a lot of good stuff in your fridge. I totally get the cola and juice being someone else’s stash. We do that here, too. I won’t touch those things. They have way too much sugar. I’m working on cleansing my body from sugar (again). I’m currently on week 3. So far so good. I got the super dark chocolate that tastes like cardboard, so when I want something sweet, I’ll eat that, and since the sugar is about nil, I’m hoping it’ll train my brain to associate sugar with cardboard. (Chocolate is a weakness for me, and that is notoriously sweet. So I’m trying to pair the two up together.)

    Let’s see. What’s in my fridge? I have a couple of steaks that I BBQ for the kids. Three pounds of bison meat for stuff like Hamburger Helper and tacos. I have ham and chicken. Potatoes for mashed potatoes and baked potatoes. I do have pre-made salads and small fruit and veggie trays. (I won’t eat the fruits and veggies or salads unless the store has already cut these things up for me. Apparently, I’m super lazy.) I also have unsweetened green tea that I make a couple times a week. I love it cold. I also have chilled water. The others have sodas and juice. 😛

      Thanks. I’m cautiously optimistic now – and trying to move ahead with writing plans. And other plans, lol. Amazing how many things get put on hold sometimes. There have still been some ‘exciting’ times (read that VERY sarcastically 😀 ) and I’m way behind – again – in things like comments and responses.

      Aria’s favorite was the elephant in the fridge so she’ll be happy know it’s not just hers.

      Definitely trying to eat better but the meme that goes around Facebook from time to time – “the crisper drawer, where good intentions go to die” – describes me far too often. 😀 😀 😀

      If the steaks aren’t bison, I’d like to have supper with you. Not a fan of Hamburger Helper, and usually not of tacos (son wants them way too often) – but the ham, chicken, and baked potatoes? Yup. I know EXACTLY what you mean on the pre-made, ready to serve produce. I’m far more apt to eat better if I don’t have to prepare it.

      Dollar Tree is one of my favorite places – apparently – to waste time – and spend several times more than I planned – every single time. Sometimes, though, I spend money on things that I wind up loving. I miss sodas – Vernor’s, anyway – and have been pleased to find a couple of replacements. I still will have my ginger ale sometimes but Perrier’s carbonated strawberry water, and the Bubly lime carbonated water are both very nice. They don’t have sugar, sweeteners, or artificial colors, but they’re a nice change from plain water when I’m craving something different.
