My Stash!

Hello all and thankyou for following us! Very exciting!
Before I get started with the main event, I wanted to show you a couple of things that are very important to me. My fridge, and my storecupboard.






I always thought a storecupboard was something only grown-ups had. But regardless of maturity, I seem to have acquired one along the way. And here it is.

You can see various essentials here. Ketchup, BBQ sauce, rock salt, vinegar, Marmite, soy sauce, Golden Syrup, and other good things. I'd like to say though that the Bisto is nothing to do with me.

The bottom shelf has all our herbs and spices. I could not live in a world where there was no flavour and I regularly find myself adding the contents of many of these in a lot of my recipes. You probably can't tell here but there are about fifty jars of spices and herbs here. Everything from garam masala to garlic salt.



And onto the main event! The fridge!
Here you can see the fridge after a weekly shop and before we put the beer in! This is everything I need to get me through a week. All the things I love: beef, bacon, mushrooms, cheeses, mayonnaise, water, avocado, peppers, broccoli, butter, bread and creme fraiche. You'll see a LOT of creme fraiche in upcoming posts.
So there you have it. When I'm not painting my nails or blogging, you'll find me here, scavenging around for a snack, or embarking on some sort of dinner mission. I hope you enjoyed having a nose in my cupboards!

p.s. - what is golden syrup

Yeah. And can you spot the massive box of wine on the second shelf? Haha.

Golden Syrup is the best stuff ever. Sweeter than maple syrup, lighter than treacle. Can be found in Louisiana apparently:
