Contentment: A Full Refrigerator

This season has been very dry financially; milk and honey are not flowing. But God is good to provide us with manna and quail every single day. And a double portion on Saturday.

All that thinking about food got me wondering what kinds of foods we keep in our frig during the summer:

  • Milk
  • Lemons to make fresh lemonade
  • 1/2 and 1/2 for my morning tea
  • Activia yogurt in blueberry, cherry, vanilla and peach
  • Sliced cheddar cheese
  • Garlic
  • Strawberries
  • Green Grapes
  • Blueberries
  • Apples
  • Pears
  • Peaches
  • Bananas
  • Spring onions
  • Tomatoes
  • Baby carrots


and in our freezer:

  • Salmon
  • Ground beef
  • Steak
  • Shrimp

steamed shrimp

and what we keep stocked in our pantry:

  • Breakfast cereals
  • Rice Krispies treats for day camps
  • Potato bread
  • Peanut butter
  • Albacore tuna
  • Spaghetti and sauce

What do you keep on hand during summer to feed your family?

    freezer- turkey , ground beef/chicken/turkey, ham slices, lump crab meat, chicken necks- for crabbing-.chicken thighs and breast.turkey dogs, and brats.

    I know theres more but thats all I can think of. I have been invetoring since money is short and I need things to last. My tomatoe plants and squah are brimming with soon to be picked veggies for us, and so are my black -eyed peas.

  2. I keep simple things on hand like tortillas, shredded cheese, homemade frozen waffles/pancakes/french toast and mac n cheese…a STAPLE with my boys!
    Although I am blessed to have a food budget of $150.00 for 2 weeks for the 4 of us, I still try to come under that by making a lot of meals from scratch, double batching them and freezing the other for a future meal. Then I put any balance in savings! God is good :O)

  3. fresh hummus is so very good, and its really easy to make. We had that in the fridge last week:-)Baba ganoush is very good too- it is an eggplant dip-.
