Ten Things You'll Always Find in Our Fridge

Just for fun, let's do a blog post that doesn't refer to homeschooling, preschoolers, curriculum, or organization. 

Ten Things You'll Always Find in Our Fridge (besides mayo, of course) 

10. This summer, we've been making homemade Arnold Palmers and stocking the fridge with a pitcher so everyone can just help themselves. 

1 cup sugar (I've also been using Xylitol instead)
1 cup water
1 cup fresh lemon juice
3-4 cups cold water

Heat sugar and one cup water in a saucepan until sugar is dissolved (you're making a simple syrup). Let cool. Juice lemons; add to sugar mixture and then add additional cold water. Refrigerate. 

Make a pitcher of strong iced black tea. Combine the lemonade and the tea. 



9.  I also have a pitcher of homemade iced chai in there. It's my caffeine of choice.

1 cinnamon stick, or 1/2 t ground
1/2 t vanilla
1/4 t cardamom
1/4 t whole peppercorns
1/4 t whole cloves
2 T sugar
1 black tea bag or about a teaspoon of Lipton Yellow Label (that's an affiliate link, but it can also be found in Indian markets) loose tea, depending on how strong you like it

Combine all ingredients and brew in 4-6 ounces of water. Add milk or almond milk to taste. 

I make a gargantuan amount of the chai mix without the tea and store it in the pantry. Brewing a pitcher's worth is easy to do! 

 8. The big huge tub of  Mountain High Yoghurt. Smoothies!

7.  Cheddar cheese and tortillas

6. Blue Diamond Almond and Coconut Milk. Remember those "A can a week -- that's all we ask" commercials from the '90's? Blue Diamond is located in our neck of the woods and many of the almonds grown around us are sold to Blue Diamond. 

5. The big ol' Costco tub of Daisy sour cream. Joe would take a spoon to it and just eat it if he could. I know. I'm gagging, too.

4.  Gigantic tub of Philadelphia cream cheese. Thanks, Costco! #chubbymom

3. Eggs. We buy the 15-dozen stack at Costco. 

2. Bacon. 6 males live here. 

1.  Wally's Ear Oil. Best relief for earaches and pool water!
