my fridge after a weekend away

Last weekend was Easter. I took the Greyhound Bus to visit my grandparents in Ohio. 

Because I knew I would be away over the weekend, I did that thing where you eat what's in your fridge and don't buy more things. Here's what I was left with, to face on Monday when I arrived back home. 

2 large roasted sweet potatoes

3 small scrubbed raw sweet potatoes

bag of small yellow onions ( I know you're not supposed to store these in the fridge, but I use them slowly so they start sprouting if I don't, ok). 

Pyrex of leftover minestrone

sweet potato curry sauce. don't ask, I'll tell you sometime? 

beets, peeled and sliced into wedges. I should roast those. 

sauerkraut, homemade. This is the second time I've made homemade sauerkraut. I made it a month ago. I'm too scared to try it. Botulism? I threw out the first batch, untouched. Help me? 

molé sauce. from Reyna's in the Strip. Also too scared to use. 

vegan butter. 

Korean pickled cucumbers, homemade. 

fire chai — tea blend from Corvallis, Oregon. It's herbal, with chiles. Spicy. Brewed in pea milk. Ripple. Too spicy. 

tahini balsamic salad dressing





beet kraut

lemon juice

Kalamata olives

whole grain mustard

yellow curry paste (Lotus, in the Strip. Get it). 

ginger, fresh

red bell peppers



almond butter turmeric salad dressing from Trader Joe's. it's not all it's cracked up to be. that's why I still have so much

ancho adobo sauce — my way of branching out from chipotle adobo sauce



dijon mustard (always)


maple syrup

turmeric ginger maple syrup. not as good as it sounds. 


toasted sesame oil.

That's all.
