Food Friday: Refrigerator Hope 
21st-Sep-2007 08:47 am
Whenever I'm at the flat by myself, which has been a lot this year (thanks, Metrol!), I tend to eat only a few things: fruit, cheese, yogurt, crackers, and sometimes bread.

I know full well that the only things that are in the refrigerator for me to eat are the cheese and the yogurt.

I ran out of both yesterday, but somehow, that doesn't stop me from standing in front of the refrigerator looking for non-existant food.

Luckily, I don't have my gram grousing at me to 'Stop letting the cold out!'

Do you look for food in your refrigerator even when you know nothing's there?

All the time! I stand there looking and looking and hoiping if I look hard enough more than a floppy carrot and half a bottle of tomato ketchup will appear!

I do, even though I know everything that's in there. I do the same for my cupboard, even though it's not like I'm going to see the same ten jell-o packets and suddenly realise that I've got a MASSIVE craving for cherry jell-o. Usually it just confirms that I've got barbeque sauce that I'll never use, Ritz crackers, and bags of pasta.

Tell me, do you like avocados?

I do! I made some guacamole earlier in the summer. I think we get our avocados from Spain, though I'm not completely sure.

I'm sure you're getting loads of Good Southern Things imported in a few weeks *grin* but is there anything I can bring over from California? I will gladly be a culinary mule - avocados, Napa wine, JIF peanut butter, Paris Hilton - just let me know. :D

No, I only check if the food which is not there hasn't run away since my last visit at the refrigerator. :)

I do, sometimes random ingredients magically become food if you look at them long enough, or at the right time. I have habits in what I tend to cook or snack on, sometimes the fridge introspection breaks that and reminds me of something different I could be doing.

Not only do I do that, but sometimes, an hour ro so after I've done it, I'll go back and look again, as if some magic food faerie put something in there interesting in between times.

Yes, I second you! Has it ever happened? Unfortunately, usually something more has disappeared from it, altough it wasn't that good (or bad enough to be thrown away already)...

Only if I'm looking for wine to be honest. I rarely go in the fridge. Himself deals with all that. I just get fed when I'm hungry. Otherwise I'd live on Peanut Butter and toast.

I don't usually because I do all the shopping so I know what I have or not. But on occasion when I have a craving but I have no idea what for I just stand at the fridge willing my craving to make itself known and appear in the fridge. Of course I can't do it for long or Five would end up in the fridge.

When I lived with you I looked in the fridge all the time but then there was usually something in it.

Yup, absolutely.

What I want to see in there (oddly enough given one of the previous comments) are Robinson's individual jelly pots. Which we do not have any of. I blame this factor for my eating far too many pieces of toast that I didn't really want lately.

I do- as if I'm expecting some sort of food miracle or a food epiphany.

Absolutely. I also have cravings for things I know aren't in the house and then I search the cupboards for some sort of unobtainable placebo
