Our 'Fridge

We got tagged by DKM with the 'Fridge meme. Here is our entry. If anyone would like to pick up this hot potato meme from here, feel free!

I have never bought a 'fridge, either there has been a 'fridge in situ or a neighbor foisted theirs upon me. This is Boyfriend's 'fridge, I have lived with it for about three years. It is 20 years old, he doesn't believe in replacing a thing until it has completely broken. I suggested that a newer 'fridge might be kinder to the electric bill, but it would seem that the man at the 'fridge shop said the old ones actually have better motors. The pig tapestry has been there for 15 years and covers some stickers children put on and the dingy whiteness that 'fridges develop in advanced age. Also decorating  the front is a picture of Tyler taken when he first came to live with us, one of my Year of the Pig cards and small magnet of the Virgin of the Gaudalupe, whose imagery I like very much. 
Inside you see the internal organs of a hard working 'fridge, there is no freezer. Hard to believe, but as you can see quite true. Here is a partial list of the bits and pieces: Shoyu, Pomegranate concentrate, sesame butter,  raw apple cider vinegar, raw whole milk from a cow with whom we are friends, homemade Kefir from same, Catsup (from habits die hard), Steiner Brot (the Black Brot is all gone) from Esther's Bakery,  South River Miso, eggs from Chickens which whom we are friends, almonds, leftover pasta sauce, beet and fennel salad, fresh tofu skin (Yuba), some Chinese herbs (Lian Zi, Hong Zao) raw cheddar cheese, Burdock root, Niman Ranch Bacon, fresh ginger, Whey for making fermented drinks,  some apricot jam, a pound of organic grassfed ground round,  carrots, red lettuce, a bell pepper or two,  a gallon of homemade sauerkraut, Parmesan, Feta, and Rabbit food. Tyler and Sydney love the expensive Spring Mix from the Farmer's Market, I have tried giving them well washed and nicely presented cuttings from the FM, but they turn up their noses. They will eat Romaine and I get them a head twice a week. Also on menu Lagomorph is parsley, cilantro, basil, dill, fennel, dandelion, and chard stalks, these are from the garden. Sometimes they get a bit of grated carrot. Treats are roses and dried lavender stalks. Sometimes I will buy them a box of sprouted wheat grass and it is gone in under a minute. Rabbits and humans try to eat fresh, local and organic foods.



Here is Tyler demonstrating how to eat greens and Sydney making an anti-paparazzi statement.

We think there is a sad lack of bunny food in there...

What clean and orderly fridge innards! (No way am I taking a picture of mine!)

Love the rabbit commentary (anti-paparazzi indeed!)

Hmmmmm..... totally great door covering. But inside ... ????

No greasy cold cheeseburger? No pickles jars? No 3-day old macaroni salad?

Hmmmmm ....

We are going to show ours soon, but I am sure the rule said just show the outside.

What a neat (and healthy) fridge you have! And your buns are adorable--they are the same breed as my Niblet (only they have their ears intact).

Will definitely pick up this meme, if only to show a decided contrast to your fridge....

I'll be honest :) If ever I have to do a fridge meme, I'll need a longer time to clear the entire fridge. It's not exactly dirtly but it's not stacked in good order like yours. Once a month (I hope) to do fridge cleaning and give it a full wipe-over. Love the rabbits!!!

hmmm you keep food in your fridge? i thought a fridge was just a giant diet coke storage unit!

we were in your neck of the woods this weekend - santa clara - visiting O'Reilly's littermate brother Sam. It was awesome! Nice to see the fires mostly out and got to drive home on the 1 and saw a lot of the aftermath :( and waved at every fire fighter crew we saw!
