    Photo in post below because I uploaded the wrong pic off my iPad! Couldn’t make it replace properly, so double post!

    Ok.... WTF. How come I am the only one here with the fridge door opening to the left?
    I would post a picture of my freezer but there is nothing to see there. Everything is packed in Whole Foods paper bags for veggies, raw meat, cooked meats / seafood, desserts, raw seafood, fruit. Those fit perfectly into my chest freezer. I have a running count of everything that goes in and out of there on top of the freezer using a marker and easy wipe board.

    Are you left handed?

    The fava shoots survived a week without water while we were out of town. Enough for a side tonight.

    Nope. Thats how it was when I moved in. It makes sense for me though. If it opened the other way it would block the kitchen.

    The first house I bought many years ago was like that! For a reason unknown to me, the previous owners had their full height fridge built in at the right hand end of a run of units, next to the wall. It opened to the left...drove me insane as the interior light bulb had gone and the door blocked the room light! Total pain, especially at night!

    Took me the best part of a year to afford to sort it out! 😂

    You aren't. Mine opens to the left, I just didn't include it in the photo. The door has a bunch of condiments, seeds, ingredient-stuff like misos, and beer. And I'm right-handed.

    I had to have the door switched to left-side hinge when the (new this summer) fridge was delivered. I have a one-big-room kitchen and dining room (1953 ranch-style house, bizarrely raised to 2nd-floor level by house mover, to put a basement where the crawl space used to be - SMH!). Rest of the kitchen is to the right of the fridge, dining area to the left. It would be extremely annoying to have the door hinged on the right.

    @acpgee Fresh greens- a thing of beauty!

    Oh man—- just in time for sharing of the produce lover’s fridge photos- mine stopped working. Living out of a cooler until we get a new one.

    Only lasted 5 years. My Mom had
    to remind me when I was a kid (late 80s) our simple refrigerator was older than I was and lasted a good 30 years.

    Love the produce photos 💕 🥬 hopefully I can go produce binge soon!

    Okay, so here's why I hardly ever post photos of my food: It's brown, always brown, so brown! (Not photogenic.)

    zm7b74xfsg14.jpg

    Top is sauteed Cremini ("Baby Bella" <eye roll>) mushrooms, cousa squash, tofu noodles, and a barley miso sauce. Bottom is cabbage slices, veryVery roasted, with dark crispy bits, the way I like it. I added a splash of white balsamic vinegar and some coarse sea salt before I ate it. While cooking, I ate some cherry tomatoes my friend grew, and had some plain fresh red raspberries for dessert. I might slice up some lemon cucumber later, too, if I feel like it.

    Last night's food maybe looks better, although it's a little odd in a different way (but notice it still features a good bit of brown stuff ;) ):

    59biloaqfckf.jpg

    That would be a romaine lettuce wrap, in which there is one of those cauliflower sandwich thins that's supposed to be a gluten-free bread substitute (but being used here as sort of a thin veggie patty for flavor & extra protein (odd)), some slices of roasted skin-on eggplant (the brown stuff you can see), sliced onion, smoked tofu, mozzarella cheese from a local cheesemaker via farmers market, and I think I may've put some dill mustard on it (but I forgot to log it). Obvious cherry tomatoes and lemon cucumber (latter sprinkled with herb salt) on the side.

    In my old home it did. In my current home it has to open on the right side as there is a wall to the left it would hit

    But my freezer paints another obsession

    LOL, I love this picture! My weaknesses are veggies and light ice cream!

    Have you had the enlightened? We buy any new flavor we see Bc they are delicious. Just tried brownie cookie dough and it was incredible too. Can’t figure out my favorite Bc they are all so good. Publix in our town just stocked up and has like 15 different flavors and I could not decide

    Disaster Fridge, aesthetic wise.
    But produce filled.

    Ready sliced kabocha in bottom drawers. Avos, holding at perfectly ripe.
    Spinach.
    Dairy (my indulgence!)
    Chopped various veg and seeds in masons.
    Waaaaay too many condiments.

    ETA: coconut, pried from whole ones, in the talent jars. Portable!

    Enlightened is one of my favorites as long as it doesn't have marshmallow in the flavor, their marshmallow is awful. My favorites are Caramel Oatmeal Cookie Crunch, Salted Caramel, and Peanut Butter Chocolate. Triple chocolate and cold brew are good too. I'm curious about the new keto flavors but don't trust myself with a whole pint at higher calories!

    The crazy thing is when this discussion came up I was "my door opens on the right, no, wait, does it?" Then when I thought for a minute I realized my refrigerator has french doors so opens both on the right and left. Anyway, my frig is a disorganized nightmare, this thread is motivating me to clean it. I really need to better organize my pantry too.

    I actually thought about posting a picture of dinner tonight (eaten extra late, at 10:30 due to work stuff), but as usual it wasn't as aesthetically pleasing as tasty -- pork chop (one of the heritage so fattier than usual ones) with cabbage, onion, and broccoli.

    @lemurcat2 I'm with you, no posting my fridge as it's desperately in need of a scrubbing, plus I'm low on food! I was thinking my fridge opened to the right but it's French doors too. I'd love it if the fridge part was on the left side though, I'm a lefty and it'd be more natural to me.

    Post it. Thats the point of this.... right now, not when filled, cleaned and properly organized. No judging. We all live busy lives.

    Last night I went shopping so today my fridge does not look like it did in that last photo. Nothing like thats at all. Well maybe for the door section.

    @AnnPT77 I have never heard of nor seen lemon cucumbers. Would love to try them!
