A Before and After Pt. 1: Before

I had seen this over at Avitable’s a while ago.  I was going to do this then, but I became distracted by the 30 Days (of which I seemed to have lost interest. Perhaps I’ll get back to that one day).

Now that the holidays are done, I noticed that the fridge was looking a little bare. We haven’t been shopping in almost two weeks.

Then an idea was born. Or stolen and I don’t remember from where. Hehe…ummm…anyway…I thought a before and after.

This is how things are looking the night before grocery shopping.

Hopefully afterwards there will be more actual food. Maybe something with protein in it.

So till the food fairy and gnomes do their thing, that’s all from a cupboards are bare barrel :)


  1. do you keep your fridge so clean?!?!

    (Yes, this is my first time here and that's all I can think of to say as I stare in amazement at the lack of kool-aid spills and jelly drips.)

  2. Thank you! And welcome:) It took a long time to get into the habit, but now I clean it out the day before grocery shopping day. Old food goes and a quick wipe-up. :) Then as they say, Bob's your uncle :)
