What's In My Fridge?

I've seen variations of this post on multiple blogs, and decided to go for it while I was unpacking my groceries this weekend.  I find it interesting to see what people have as staples in their fridge, and have picked up some great ideas for condiments, sides, etc. I believe Everyday with Rachel Ray does this at the end of every issue? 

First off, a picture of my fridge from the outside.  I LOVE this fridge, is that ok to say? When we moved in back in 2009, my hubs let me pick out whatever fridge I wanted.  So I went all out.  I justified the price (to myself mainly,) with the fact that I make the majority of our meals at home, even though it's just the two of us.  Those of you that live by yourself or just your significant other, you know what I'm referring to.  It can be QUITE expensive to shop and cook for just the two of us, it's almost more cost-effective to eat out.

I may have found the original picture from my Blackberry the day I came home to the fridge and microwave delivered in all their beauty!

Ok, now to the exciting parts, the contents!

The majority of the time my fridge does stay this neat, if it doesn't I lose track of what I have and strange smells emanate.  Too much?

Top Shelf:
-Greek Yogurt. I tried Chobani's kids yogurt in Orange, but I prefer Oikos, fruit on the bottom.
-Daisy Sour Cream (and a back-up!) I love the fact that Daisy sour cream has only cream, no preservatives.
-Organic Valley Half & Half (and a back up) Again, no preservatives, or the add-in to assure the "cream doesn't break down in coffee." Um, what does that mean?
-Salsa- I don't have a favorite, I tend to buy a different brand each time.
-Claussen Pickles. And back-up. I only buy the refrigerated (at the store) pickles. 
-My soda. I don't drink it daily, but every once in awhile I crave a ginger ale or SanPellegrino Blood Orange soda.

Middle Shelf:
-I've been too cheap recently to replace the filter on this fridge, I instead but Dasani bottled water. Don't worry, I recycle!
-Occasionally I like to grab a Metromint water, have you tried them? Seriously amazing.
-A glass Pyrex container of homemade spaghetti sauce. I've been tweaking the recipe, but plan on sharing it with you shortly!
-Ketchup. A necessity in this house. Hubs puts ketchup on everything. Everything.
-A Sausage bread we are about to dive into for lunch (gift from a friend!)
-Juice: Hubs is a little bit of a snob, but it is delicious! Simply Apple and Simply Orange
-My favorite brewed coffee: Choc Full O'Nuts

Bottom Shelf:
-Blue Cheese Crumbles- Buffalo Chicken dip (recipe coming soon!) is a favorite in this house, plus blue cheese crumbles are delicious sprinkled on salads.
-Rotisserie Chicken- Hey, it's probably the best $6-7 I spend a week. Easy dinners, salads, sandwiches, etc.
-Purdue BLSL Chicken Breast- will be used this week to make Balsamic chicken.
-Hub's endless supply of Coke.

The majority of the produce you see are staples in my fridge: butter lettuce blend, orange peppers, onion, garlic, celery, carrots, oranges, apples, and lemons. The zucchini and the asparagus are special to this week's meal plan. I'm pretty psyched. I keep my tomatoes on the counter (grape, cherry, and Roma) as well as my darling clementines.

Dairy Drawer:
-We're bacon snobs, so I am pretty psyched to try this thick-cut bacon, hoping it lives up to the price. 
-Lunchmeat: Boar's Head Honey Ham & Swiss for a recipe this week from Pinterest
-Crescent Dough- for homemade cream cheese danish that I'll make someday
-Sorrento Part-Skim Mozzarella, on sale, stocked up. As you can see from the mozza and the cheddars, I am a block cheese fan, the shred-it-yourself variety.  Not only am I not a fan of the preservatives added to pre-shredded cheese, I don't think the taste is the same as well as the melting factor.
-Babybel White Cheddar- I love grabbing these with an apple and some crackers for a quick lunch
-Hormel Turkey Bacon- great for homemade pizza
-Philadelphia 1/3 Less Fat Cream Cheese- for said danish and other recipes
-Pillsbury Cinnabon Buns- I should probably make these, they been here awhile
-Ore'Ida Hashbrowns- hands down the BEST hashbrowns. No thaw time and they crisp up deliciously. I use these as a crust for a quiche that I need to share with you...someday...
-Block Cheese: Extra Sharpe Cheddar & Mont Jack

-The usual: whipped cream, jelly, salad dressings (Thousand Island & Honey Dijon,) Parmesan, Bacon Bits (gotta do what I gotta do to get hubs to eat a salad,) India relish, dijon mustard, whole grain dijon (I'm a major Barefoot Contessa fan and that's in like everything she makes,) expired caramel sauce, Olive Garden dressing, old maraschino cherries, and a massive block of white chocolate for, you guess it...baking someday.

This oh-so-not-sexy pic of a pointless section of my fridge...

-But it holds Sriracha, liquid gold.  I'm not much of a hot sauce fan, but my sister in law Megan had this at her house a few months ago and I fell in love.  Due to the single-degree temps lately, I've been sprinkling this on everything.  Adds a little warmth! It's hot sauce with a flavor, way better than tabasco.
-Frank's Red Hot for our buffalo chicken dip obsession
-Assorted takeout/fast food sauces- probably should be thrown out at this point.

And now onto the freezer.  I will admit, I did straighten up the freezer for you guys, it was pretty bad.

Bottom Drawer
-Section on the left is filled with frozen veggies. They taste so much better than canned and prepare so easily on the stove or microwave. Also included in this section is a bag of frozen sweet potato fries, delicious side to add to a meal.
-The right section includes meat, frozen meals, and tots. Bird's Eye Voila! dinners are fabulous and so easy to prepare.  I found these while I was on LAWL, and they've been a staple in my freezer ever since. My favorite is the Three Cheese Chicken.
-On the door are steaks for at-home Philly Cheese Steaks and an endless supply of Thomas English Muffins.

Top Drawer
-Ok, I may have gone a little overboard on the processed-breakfast foods...
-Pasta leftovers
-Quiche leftovers

-Ice cream bowl ready to make ice cream or froyo...someday...
-Hub's adorable pac-man ice cubes

So, that is what is in my fridge and freezer. There are a few staples currently missing

I plan on showing you my pantry next, that definitely needs an overhaul! I plan on sharing more recipes coming up, I've just been striking out recently.  I don't want to show you everything I make, I'd rather share the winners.
