It's true. We do have a lot of condiments. There are 4 or 5 kinds of mustards. Grainy. Sweet. Spicy. Regular. Asian. We also have a lot of marinades, salad dressings, salsas, olives, pickles, ketchup, barbeque sauces, jams, jellies and cheeses. I've never taken an inventory of my fridge. But as I sit here thinking about it. We do have a lot of little jars in there!
I guess I thought everyone had this kind of stuff in their fridge.
Want to make chinese food for dinner? No problem. We've got soy sauce, oyster sauce, hoisin sauce, spicy mustard, plum sauce, hot asian sauce.
Want an olive for a snack? For a cocktail? With or without jalapeno? We've got about 5 different kinds of olives. Or how about chips and salsa? Spicy? Mild? Mango? We have it.
And pickles. Whole pickles, sliced pickles, sweet pickles, dill pickles. We even have pickled jalapenos. Which are delish by the way. We once lived near a family back in the '70s whose last name was Pickle. They had a sign hanging over their front door in the shape of a green pickle with their name on it. Or was it on their mailbox? I don't exactly remember. Random, I know.
Anyhow, we basically need a fridge just for all our condiments. So I've started taking notice of what other people have in their fridges.
Some fridges are packed to the gills. Some are really clean and empty. The fridge at the office where I work is full of tupperware containers, lunches, yogurt and milk for coffee. And quite a few random condiments!
