Fridge Fodder for Food Bloggers

5 February 2010 2,125 views 7 Comments

Addie Broyles is a friend, Statesman food writer, co-founder of a food lovers book club, and co-organizer of the Tasty Up tour (taking place tomorrow afternoon throughout Central and South Austin).

She asked me if I would send her photos for inclusion in her weekly series, “What’s in Your Fridge Friday” and I decided to send pics after a long weekend trip when it was especially empty and immediately following my weekly grocery shop when it’s at its best.

Tasty Touring blogger Jodi Bart: What’s in Your Fridge Friday?

Grocery-Filled Fridge

Jodi Bart is the food blogger, but her boyfriend, Adam, is the resident chef in their Northeast Austin home.

Bart’s blog, Tasty Touring, tracks the best of what’s happening in Austin’s food scene, and in the past year and a half since she started blogging, she’s become a leader in the food community, organizing Tasty Tours for her readers and, up until December of last year, hosting a weekly radio segment about food on KGSR.

The pictures above show their fridge before and after a trip to the grocery store. “It doesn’t look like much but it kept us fed for the week,” she says. Adam might be in charge of dinner most nights that they aren’t out at some of Austin’s most buzzworthy eateries, but Bart has been expanding her cooking repertoire recently with dishes like this Thai stir fry.

This month, we’ve created a Tasty Tours/Addie’s Eat-Up mashup event at more than 10 trailers tomorrow. The Tasty Up Trailer Tour will start at coffee/breakfast trailers from noon to 1 p.m., and then it’s a choose-your-own-trailer-adventure at some of the newest and most talked-about mobile food vendors in Austin.

You can find all the details at the Facebook event page, and stay tuned to the Tasty Touring and Addie’s Eat-Up pages for more events like these in the future.

What three things are always in your fridge? Mootopia Skim Milk, breakfast fruit (blackberries in the winter, blueberries and raspberries in the summer) for our cereal, random jars and bottles of exotic jams and sauces that Adam promises we’ll use some day.

What’s your favorite condiment? Adam’s homemade chipotle aioli

What’s your go-to late night snack? Cereal or graham crackers topped with crunchy peanut butter and drizzled with honey.

    Yeah, very cool!

    I would LOVE to visit stone barns one day. We'll have to build it into one of our NYC visits. I pretty much love all honey and fell even deeper into it when I was in Greece and tried so many different types. We have about 7 different jars of honey at home. The good thing about them is that they never go bad!

    The full recipe for the aoili isn't in the blog but there is a list of ingredients here: http://tastytouring.com/2009/02/cleanse-the-fir…. It's super easy to make and includes: mayonnaise, lime juice, salt and pepper, and chipotle in adobo sauce.

    There are large pieces of frozen meat in the freezer, bagels, frozen fruit, pasta, and cubes of stocks. I rarely go in there.
