What's In Your Fridge?

Granny Annie issued that challenge I participated in on my last post. LOL!  She saw my jar of Miracle Whip in my fridge and commented that she didn't know anyone used Miracle Whip.  Well, I didn't think I knew anyone who didn't use Miracle Whip.  Makes me wonder what else I think everyone has on hand all the time.  So, my challenge is:  What is something that you always have in your fridge?
Here is my list of "always have" items:
  1. Miracle Whip---I put it on sandwiches & hamburgers, in potato salad and pasta salad.
  2. milk---I don't drink it but put it on cereal.  I eat a lot of cereal.  Raisin Bran Crunch is my favorite.
  3. eggs---I don't really like to eat eggs but have them because scrambled egg & toast sandwiches are cheap meals, and I make cornbread a lot, requiring an egg.  
  4. Apple Cider Vinegar---because I think it has a lot of healing properties.  I try to drink it every day....a cup of hot water, a Tablespoon or so of honey, a Tablespoon of Bragg's Apple Cider Vinegar with the Mother, and a packet of Alpine Spiced Apple Cider Drink mix.
  5. Catsup (or is it ketchup?)---to have with the OreIda Crinkle Cut Fries I bake in the oven.  Yum!
  6. Thousand Island & Hidden Valley Ranch Dressings---because I like salad with dressing.
  7. Some kind of margarine and/or butter---for mashed potatoes & toast mostly.
  8. a jar of water with lots of ice---because I drink a lot of water but only when it is icy cold.
  9. Grated Cheddar Cheese---because I eat a lot of Mexican food with cheese, use it in casseroles, put on top of chili or baked potatoes.
  10. Iceberg lettuce--for salad and because I can't eat a sandwich without it, even though it is tasteless.
  11. Sweet pickles--- for tuna salad, Dill Pickle Chips ---for hamburgers, and my granddaughter & I like to just eat them for a snack.
  12. Mustard ---for hamburgers and potato salad.
  13. a can of some kind of carbonated beverage---because that is my biggest weakness.  Coke, Dr. Pepper or Squirt
  14. a jar of jelly, jam or preserves---for toast.  Right now I have apricot and blackberry. Usually I have strawberry.
  15. Orange Juice---because I love it.  Start your day with a glass of sunshine!


  1. Miracle whip has never entered my house. I don't like mayo either but I do have a small jar for some purposes.
    I think I'll pass on the challenge, but I do have turkey thawing in my refrigerator, which will be cooked at my daughter's house Christmas Day.
    My cat is tucked away in her nest in the closet, and I am trying to catch up on blog reading -again- before the football game starts.

    1. Hi Linda! Thank you for stopping by. No Miracle Whip!? Very interesting. Here I thought everyone used Miracle Whip.

  2. Like you, I always have milk, but then I differ. I always have a good stock of Can't Believe its not Butter Spray, goat cheese, and lemon curd.

    1. Hi Patti! Good to hear from you. I have never had goat cheese or lemon curd.

  3. Ok, so now I am curious. What do you use if you don't use Miracle Whip for sandwiches, potato salad, etc? Do you use Salad Dressing or real Mayonnaise?
