No Fridge Challenge Day 7: Midnight snack attack!

No Fridge Challenge Day 7: Midnight snack attack!

As midnight approaches on Day 7 of the No Fridge Challenge, I can’t help but be relieved that it is nearly over.

I’m sure when my sister-in-law Sandy proposed the challenge she did not expect that I would find it so difficult. What’s the big deal, right?

I suppose it is just far harder than I suspected to live without this most basic of household appliances.

It causes me to wonder whether the loss of any other home appliance would hit so hard?

(Which then causes me to wonder how I’ll go with the No TV Challenge…)

No Fridge Challenge Day 6: Eating is cheating

Standard

Apologies for the late post, I was otherwise occupied last night.

Ok, if you must know, I was out “having the night of my life with HANSON!”

Hanson

“When you get old and start losing your hair, the girls of Sydney will still care”.

One of my oldest and dearest friends, Rachael, is a mad Hanson fan (and yes, I intentionally used the word “is” rather than “was”). Rachael attended the concert the night before, managing to impressively tick off the absolute ultimate of all of her bucket list items by actually meeting them.

*Insert incoherent squeal here*

With other people’s bucket list items being ticked of left and right, it is with renewed vigour that I return to my own list

No Fridge Challenge Day 5: Dead meat

No Fridge Challenge Day 5: Dead meat

It is almost dinner time on Day 5 of the No Fridge Challenge, and it is just occurring to me that I haven’t had lunch. Unsurprisingly, I don’t feel particularly great, although that may have more to do with the fact that all I’ve eaten all day is salted cashews.

I know I’ve done a lot of whingeing about the No Fridge Challenge so far, and I’ve no doubt you’re all getting pretty sick and tired of it. Possibly even as sick and tired as I am of salted snacks right now! But, it’s actually not the fridgeless factor that’s causing me to starve today…

No. There is another, far greater, threat to my health and I’m afraid if I don’t keep my voice down I might actually become dinner myself.

Come closer and I’ll whisper it to you…

Zombies are out to get me.

No Fridge Challenge Day 4: TV dinners

No Fridge Challenge Day 4: TV dinners

Things at our house are getting grim. I’m only halfway into the No Fridge Challenge and already supplies are running low. Here I was thinking I was set for nuclear fallout, when in reality I can barely last 4 days. Now all I have left is half a bag of pretzels, some eggs, two tins of tuna, and some rapidly decelerating celery.

I could always go to the shops and buy more supplies, but I am weak from the malnourishment…

Weak… and lazy.

Fortunately, I have not yet commenced the No TV challenge, because it is providing me with what little sustenance I have left…

No Fridge Challenge Day 3: Feeling drained

No Fridge Challenge Day 3: Feeling drained

Last night Andy and I enjoyed a movie that didn’t fall into the Top 100. Stephen King’s ‘IT’ provided a refreshing change, however it brought with it it’s own set of problems.

Those who have seen ‘IT’ will know that it involves a rather disturbing child-eating clown, Pennywise, who lives in the drain (not in a feisty Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles way, mind you, but in a Penguin from Batman Returns kind of way).

I don’t know, maybe I’m just feeling a bit “drained” myself, but things are starting to get a little weird.

No Fridge Challenge Day 2: A fruitful endeavour

No Fridge Challenge Day 2: A fruitful endeavour

So I’m onto day 2 of the No Fridge Challenge, and I’m already feeling a little better prepared. Andy is planning to make a nice pumpkin risotto for dinner, and I even managed to rescue a fresh avocado from my parents’ tree, which I intend to turn into guacamole and eat with corn chips as a snack – because I can!

There were also some ripening paw paws and a few early oranges rotting in the grass. It’s a foragers heaven, as you can see…
