I’m Fridge~id !


I’m afraid so ! I know I’m dangerous in the kitchen but I have to eat during the day !

Now what’s in the fridge ?


Nothing in the freezer ! See what else I’ve got !


What do you suggest I have to eat ?


What do you think cat ?

Eat me fish ! PLEASE !


Maybe I could make a jelly ! But my hands are so bad !


And to think I’ve got a problem ! There’s always someone worse than me !


I give up in the kitchen !Β  I think I’ll sit down ……..


……….and watch someone else make breakfast.




That was fun ! I decided on a cheese and tomato sandwich for lunch. That’s safe. No cutting required.

I asked Toni (my Spanish neighbour who cooks my evening meal every night) to cut everything for me.

This is what she prepared tonight. Every night it’s something different !


Maybe I’ll buy some grapes for tomorrow



How would you organise my fridge…..and my lack of culinary expertise ?

  1. I believe I would be on a liquid diet.

    Sadly, my fridge is no better when I am on my own. Pretty pitiful (for me) LOL


    • Hi Not πŸ˜€ I’ll join you in being pitiful. Other than cereals for breakfast and a cheese & tomato sandwich for lunch that would be me for the day. Luckily I have a proper meal around 10pm or I would look like a matchstick with the wood scraped off. A mutual pitiful hug. Ralph xox ❀


  2. It looks like your fridge does not have much. There is no real serious organization needed πŸ™‚


    • Hi YC πŸ˜€ That’s why I need help to fill the fridge with the right easy things for me to eat. I am useless at shopping and seem to end up with a shopping bag full of doughnuts, chocolates and other delights, but very little for the fridge. Ralph πŸ˜€


  3. Your fridge is seriously better than mine, so I’d better not offer any advice/help.

    That Toni is worth her weight in gold, isn’t she? Give her a big hug from me. Have they chosen a name for the bambino? What about Zeus??

    Hugs to you to. oxo and ❀ and πŸ™‚


    • Hi Yvonne πŸ˜€ I am wondering what “seriously better than mine” means ? Perhaps yours is like a local friend of mine half containing half a supermarket and the other half, containers of odds and ends left over from meals long forgotten πŸ˜‰
      Toni is wonderful, isn’t she ? She has looked through all your baby name comments and still hasn’t made her mind up yet. There’s three months to go before the baby is born. So no rush !
      Hugs back. Ralph xox ❀


  4. i am half italian so i would fill your fridge and cupboards to beyond groaning point. i’m going to say add lots of easy to fix and eat food. make big casseroles early in the week, eat them all week w veggies and chocolate too of course.


    • Hi Beth πŸ˜€ I will be really polite in not asking what nationality your other half is πŸ˜‰
      Thanks for making my kitchen groan and the casserole advice. The only electrical devices I have used over the last 2 years in the kitchen are the lights, fridge and toaster. The hob and oven are ornaments !
      Ralph xox ❀


  5. A big hug or two wouldn’t go astray. Add lots of love mixed with dumplings of sweetness and you’re set for the day, my sweet man.
    Thank goodness for friends with food πŸ˜‰ πŸ˜‰


    • Hi Carolyn πŸ˜€ Now we’re cooking ! You’re my kind of culinary expert my friend. Ralph xox ❀


  6. Ralph, you need a Lottie in your life!! Your fridge would be groaning with goodies if I moved in πŸ™‚ Your fridge looks very much like Pete’s fridge used to in LBL (life before lottie) Toni sounds wonderful, how lovely that she cooks for you xox ❀


    • Hi Lottie πŸ˜€
      I definitely need a Lottie in my life. I have a Toni for the evenings, but a groaning fridge Lottie would be so useful πŸ˜€
      I had a day off blogging yesterday and as it’s bucketing down with rain I’m back in action on my keyboard this afternoon.

  7. What a clean fridge you have, Ralph. A little sparse, but mighty clean. Mine has lots of uneaten leftovers in it! They usually get tossed. I don’t know why I save them at all. Lately, I have been a little better about eating them. What a nice neighbor you have. Your meal looks delicious!


    • Hi Amy πŸ˜€ Like most of the other commenters you probably have a family to feed. So I do understand your predicament. I used to cook. I daren’t even try now. For instance cereals always end up all over the work surface when I am filling the bowl. Also it works out cheaper for Toni to cook for me. It also gives her the incentive to give her family a decent meal every night. So we are both happy with the arrangement. Ralph xox ❀


  8. Nothing wrong with doughnuts….. Since you still get his wonderful meal from Toni , and I know she is a great cook, you don’t need a lot. Beers, cider cheese, bread and ham would do for me. … and never run out of tea and biscuits….
    Or go for a daily walk to the shop for lunch and buy something ready made.
    (top tip…you should probably through out the 2 year old stuff…. ) πŸ™‚


    • Hi Ute πŸ˜€
      Thank you so much for your advice especially about the doughnuts. I have kept those 2 year old vegetables in the freezer as I understand the freezer works better with something in it. I will get rid of them and replace them with boxes of ice cream I think and send the vegetables off to the Antiques Roadshow.

  9. MFR, my dear, your lack of culinary experience, I fear, is greatly exaggerated, but this makes a great story. Personally, I think you are awesome at whatever you set your mind and will to do. πŸ™‚ If cooking and eating was it, then cooking and eating you would do. I agree with Carolyn and with ksbeth. Here’s a great casserole and a big hug. πŸ™‚


    • Hi MVBFM πŸ˜€ Sorry I am so long in replying to your comment (and all the others). I have been feeling dizzy so I thought I would take a break from blogging this weekend. I am better now.
      Thank you so much for your casserole of hugs. Very tasty. Ralph xox ❀

  10. I see no problem here. Couldn’t you just have a melon, cheese, and chocolate sandwich with ketchup and bacteria stuff? They do it all the time in Denmark.


    • Hi SDHD πŸ˜€ Wow ! That’s a novel sandwich ! I think that I’ll give Denmark a miss this year. I wonder why ? Hugs. Ralph xox ❀


  11. Hell, you got ciders and two year old vegetables. What a fine fridge. Actually I am really impressed, Ralpha. The one I left in my last house didn’t even have icebox doors……


    • Hey Shey πŸ˜€ A fine fridge indeed. I daren’t ask how you mislaid your icebox doors. I’ve changed my mind ! Please tell ! No one reads my comment area anyway. So spill the ice cubes ! πŸ˜‰ Ralph xox ❀


  12. Love the tour of your frig … better yet, that comedy clip was a hoot (and one I will use in the future). Thanks … meanwhile, I enjoy cooking.


    • Hi Frank πŸ˜€ That’s great that you enjoy cooking. I am sure you are excellent at it. Ralph πŸ˜€

    • Hi Stephanie πŸ˜€ Your poem was well worth the visit. So funny ! Your link …… although obnoxiously bad protocol…. hmm ! ….. took me to a place, the back seat of your car which I will have nightmares about for the next week πŸ˜‰ Hugs. Ralph xox ❀


  13. That’s it! I’m tossing my fridge out! It’s eat fresh or eat mesh. (Nothing else rhymed)
    Still, as a veggie, I stand by this motto!
    Love and food to you, Ralph! _Resa xox ox o o o x oo x


    • Hi Resa πŸ˜€
      There is “thresh afresh unmesh and sheesh”. Sounds like a good party !
      If you are throwing your fridge out, I do hope you are not living on the 101st floor. πŸ˜‰
      Love and food back to you my friend. Ralph xoxox ❀


  14. You have bacteria stuff…what else does one really need?! Oh and chocolate, chocolate is essential. sounds like you’re all set there. πŸ™‚


    • Hi Addie Marie πŸ˜€ Oh, yes ! I have bacteria stuff and chocolate. You are definitely the best dietician here as you are on my wavelength. You’re hired ! πŸ˜€ Ralph xox ❀


  15. At least your fridge looks clean. I’d never take a picture of the inside of mine. For that matter, the outside too.


  16. I think you have to buy already all fresh- cut vegetables and put it into your fridge ( so if you’re able you can use them in a home-made soup where you have only to stir them and maybe if you want to do it by yourself ask your lovely neighbour ! Than to have always in the house some fresh eggs (eggs are so easy to break I think ), cheese, milk and naturally some meat or fish who you already have had cooked in little meals, so you only have to warm them up ! Hope I could help you in this way dear Ralph πŸ™‚ !


  17. Thank goodness for Toni! Can’t you order proper meals to be delivered? I know that it’s possible in England to have this service to your door. You also need some healthy snacks like baby carrots, almonds, fruit salad, olives, cheese and whole grain bread. I wish I lived near you. I’d come and sort you out, Pronto. πŸ™‚ xx


    • Hello Sylvia πŸ˜€
      Yes, I agree, I would be in a right pickle sandwich without Toni. There are no “meals on wheels” here in the mountains of southern Spain so having a Toni here is a godsend. Thank you for your offer to sort me out, Pronto. Love Ralph, the Prone Ranger, xox ❀ πŸ˜‰

  18. Thank you for liking “Autumn Splendor.” You should probably get newer bread, and getting rid of the two-year old frozen vegetables would be a good idea too. I have a couple of suggestions for foods that are easy to cook. Instant oatmeal would be easy to cook if you can manage to boil water. There are also different types of nut spreads such as peanut butter or almond butter that you could use for sandwiches. However, it would not be worth getting these things if you don’t like them or are allergic to them. I am so glad you have Toni to help you. πŸ™‚

    Your post reminded me that I have to be careful about leaving the refrigerator door open too long because of my cats. One time, I left the door open and then shut it without looking inside. A few minutes later, I heard muffled meowing coming from the refrigerator. When I opened the door again, one of my cats jumped out from a small empty space in the refrigerator. Luckily, I was around to let him out right away. πŸ™‚


    • Hello Arlene πŸ˜€ Thank you so much for your dietary advice. I will take your suggestions to heart. And your cat story is so funny. I am always locking my black cat in cupboards or out on the balcony at night. They are so fast, aren’t they ? Ralph xox ❀


  19. Yes, cats are fast and very quiet too. πŸ™‚ Luckily my cupboard cabinets do not lock shut, so there is no danger of my cats being trapped inside of them. The car trunk is another favorite place my cats like to go inside of. I also have to be careful to check inside there before I close the door.

    I did a little research about storing bread and found out that it is better to avoid storing bread in the refrigerator because the bread will go stale faster in there. There are two good ways to store bread. You can keep it in its original packaging at room temperature. However, it will only keep fresh for a few days. You can also freeze wrapped bread for up to three months. (Source: “Keeping Bread Fresh” – bread.com). I hope this information helps you in your attempt to reorganize your refrigerator.


    • I had a kitten here until her kidneys failed. She never left my apartment and lost her. Looked everywhere and found her here >>>

      Thanks for the bread advice. I freeze them straight from the shop and use them within a few weeks. I haven’t had a problem πŸ˜€


    • Hello Binky πŸ˜€ Wow ! Preparing for a night on the tiles ? Love to you and Granny. S&S&R xox ❀

    • Hello Mary πŸ˜€ Ha ! I live in the mountains and the village shop has basic essentials. Toni cooks my evening meal, so maybe that’s what you mean πŸ˜‰ The fish was hungry ! Such fun ! Ralph xox ❀


  20. You’re asking the wrong person here.
    I don’t cook – hubby does. πŸ˜‰
    Yes – Im lucky.
    Actually – it was one of my marriage requirements – that my spouse know how to cook – LOL
    Thank God for Toni. Bless her heart for prepping your dinner ready to eat!

  21. OMG! Your neighbor cooks for you? You are one lucky guy.

    One week I eat healthy and the next… I eat next to nothing or junk food! Lol
    I’m my worst enemy so to me, your fridge looks okay! Haha Thanks for stopping by my blog and hugs to your neighbor. Paula xx


    • Hi Paula πŸ˜€
      Yes I know and she cooks so well !
      LOL If I had my way I would be constantly eating sweet things !
      Time you became your friend then my friend. The only problem with my fridge is that I never stock it and eat the wrong things if and when I do !
      Hugs passed onto Toni and I have a hug for you. Ralph xox ❀
