Food For Thought (Possibly Nightmares)

I guess last week I jumped the gun on the food picture.

And this week - well, let's just say I haven't really made any 'pretty food'. I haven't been in the mood.

It has, fortunately, helped out with the weight loss.

So my pictures of food...well, they're maybe not that appetizing. Let's just call this photo exercise a lower middle class version of MTV Cribs. You know how they always show the contents of the fridge and kitchen? Yeah. No Cristal Here. Just Crystal Light.

Exhibit 1: I really need to clean out my fridge. I have way too many science experiments going on for my taste.


The Costco sized eggs and Go-Gurt are literally collapsing a shelf. Thankfully, the ginormous Costco mayonnaise is there to prop everybody up.

Exhibit 2: And I need to clean out my freezer. Stuff falls out on my husband every time he opens the door. Resulting in a few swears. Just a few.

You see that ice cream? I haven't touched it in a week. Amazing. Or the Eggos. But I am eating that Ezekiel Bread. Everything is okay with peanut butter and bananas...

Exhibit 3: At least my canned goods look nice. But you don't get to see the uncropped version of this photo. It's not pretty.

Exhibit 4: Dinner.

Exhibit 5: Who wants to come do my dishes? I'll pay you $100. They're still sitting in there. Gross. I HATE DOING DISHES.

Exhibit 6: This is what I did instead of dishes. Mmmmm. Tea.

Go on over to I Should Be Folding Laundry where you'll hopefully find some more appetizing food!

I almost did the exact same post! And then I realized how embarrassed I'd be showing my cabinets and fridge. I don't think a crop of my cabinet would turn out so well! Considering what could be in your fridge, that doesn't look too bad! Love the tea shot!

You crack me up! And where's the beer?! ;o)

Heather D said...

April, the beer is in the fridge DOOR. Duh.

My sink looks the same way. Dishes are the worst. They taunt my every time I go in the freakin' kitchen. The tea shot is especially lovely!

nikki said...

omg! those pictures made me laugh out loud. I need to show my hubby so he can get off my case about ours. Mine looks bare compared to yours! :)

Terri said...

The Animator's Wife said...

Creative idea! And sihes are always more approachable after a nice cup of tea-- or a beer from your fridge door. works well too!

Happy Thursday!

This cracked me up. Our refrigerator & freezer are the same way. We have to cram everything in. I need one of those giant industrial sized fridges.

Hmm, that sounds about right...our apartment fridge is overflowing with old stuff we don't want to throw away and we are currently trying to brake the record for most dishes stacked in the sink. That's why my roommate and I like to go to other people's houses for dinner :)

Mommy Mo said...

Doing the dishes are an effing bitch, for real. Especially when I do them 3+ times a day- what is wrong with me?

I love how the mayo is propping up the fallen shelf- awesome.

Your fridge is definitely stocked!

Now that was fun! I loved touring your kitchen. It was very interesting and your photos did a great job of telling the whole story. What a great 'food' post!

My fridge is a mess too! Have you tried putting Go-gurt in the freezer? Mmmm, I love tea, nice shot.

ZDub said...

LOL! Too funny!

I am not playing this week because food is way too hard to photograph.

The picture of tea is great, seriously.

Anjie said...

I'm so glad I'm not the only one with a fridge and freezer like that. Love the shot of the tea...I didn't even think to do something like that!

Thanks for the smile!

WHEN did you have time to sneak into my house and take those photos? Hooker.

I love you so much!! I hate doing dishes, too. So much that I'm thinking of feeding my kids straight off the table and making only things they can eat with their fingers.
