Hoarding


Apparently, during the holidays I was subconsciously
afraid of running out of my favorite salad dressing!

  1. Did you know that you can't get salad dressing in France? I have to send jars of the stuff to the family and friends there. In the local supermarkets they only sell mayonnaise would you believe..

    1. No, I didn't know that! I guess they could always whisk up their own...but having a jar of it is convenient when you find a few that you like. What's your favorite?

      And yes, you are first!

    2. Actually, I prefer mayonnaise.

      Delete
    3. We don't use mayonnaise as a salad dressing....we spread it on our sandwiches!

    4. So do I, mixed with tuna usually, I use vinaigrette on salads.

    5. I do love my mayo....I usually slather it on pretty thick.

  2. Is your fridge always decked out with jars on vintage aluminum platters?

    1. ha. yes, actually. That's an old aluminum lazy susan...it always holds the dressings and jellies! More out of convenience than looks, but I like the way it looks, too!

    2. When we got this fridge a year ago it was totally different inside and I had to figure out how to fit things in it. The doors don't hold much and the shelves aren't as tall! I switched to jars of dressings instead of bottles because they are shorter and then the lazy susan makes it easier since you don't have to dig in the back. I didn't realize all the bottles of poppy seed until I spun the thing around! :)

  3. Too funny! I often buy too much half and half - like I'm afraid of running out for my coffee!

    1. I have two extra containers of half and half right now! I didn't use as much over the holidays as I had anticipated!

  4. I did that with coffee creamer. ha ha! But, I'm actually almost out now. Just the Amaretto to go.

    1. What a great excuse to drink more coffee. ha.

    2. The pinion coffee James ordered special from New Mexico is so yummy. I think maybe we should hoard up some of that too. I don't want it to be gone.
      :0)

    3. I've never heard of that! Maybe I should hoard it, too!

    4. My daughter in law Sabrina loves it. She was more excited about the coffee in their Christmas box than anything else.

    5. It's a pretty mellow coffee. I'm not a strong coffee drinker. I don't like it strong.
      It's a very nice coffee.

      Delete
    6. I like it mellow, too....and then I add creamer. ha.

  5. The lazy susan is a good idea!

    3. And you could make a whole batch of poppy seed muffins and have to share with no one! haha.

  7. You're giving me space saving ideas here! And you have me wondering about that brand, now. I do like poppy seed dressings.

    1. It's a good brand...hope you can find it there!

  8. Haha, it's sour cream and cream cheese for me. I'm almost never without it.

    1. Those spying bluebirds told me!

    2. Ha, I suspect your good deductive reasoning at work and the amount of cheesecakes I crank out! Although bluebird spies sound more interesting and fun! :)

      Delete
    3. Yes, I knew it was the cheesecakes...and I think you mentioned before that you buy many packages of cream cheese! :)

  9. Oh gosh, I do the same thing. I try so hard to keep the pantry well stocked and then sometimes I find that I have really gone overboard on a few things.

    1. It's easy to do...sometimes I stand in the grocery and think, "Do we need this?" I hate to get home and see we are out of something we really need...and that's with keeping an ongoing grocery list! The men don't always tell me when they use the last of something. Oh, who am I kidding? They never tell me! lol....

  10. I love poppy seed dressing too! I straightened out cupboards a few weeks ago and found 4 large Costco jugs of maple syrup. I have breakfast covered and you have salad covered. Taria

    1. haha! That is so funny! We are clearing out the fridge this week from all the holiday stuff. Amazing what you can find and use up after a month of extra yummy food. Poppy seed dressing is so yummy...I like fruit in my salads and it goes well with that. Ranch is my second favorite....yum!

      Delete
  11. My favorite too. Was out and tried to make some. It was OK but not like the kind you've hoarding. I'm not familiar with this brand. I did get some real good with the Panera Bread label.

    1. I wonder if they have Marzetti dressings in CA! It is refrigerated and sold in the produce section. They make yummy veggie dips, too.
      I have a good poppy seed dressing recipe....I'll send it to you sometime. Have to find it. I haven't made it in years but it's a good one! I've just gotten lazy! ha.

    2. I will check it out in the refrigerator section at the store. I know Marie Callendar makes some dressings that are in jars in that section.

      Delete
    3. I've never tried anything by Marie Callendar! I've seen that brand though...maybe frozen foods? I'll have to look for the dressings.

  12. lol well at least it was only one thing
    Looks like you'll have enough to last until spring

    1. I can eat salads galore
      at my shore.
      Any kind will do,
      just drizzle with a tablespoon or two.

  13. I've never tried this kind but I'll be looking for some. Thanks for the recommendation

    1. I also recommend finishing the almost empty one before opening the next! haha.

  14. You are so right!
    I do the same thing for the cottage! Can't remember what I have out there!
    Have you tried Bolthouse dressings?
    Made with yogurt.....the Ceasar one is soooo good, and very low in fat!
    Also in the refrigerated part of produce...
    Snowing here too....
    Cheers!

    3. Taylor and Lauren are hooked on their fruit and veggie Smoothies!

    4. there is also a Honey Mustard dressing...fabulous on the Spinach salad...used to use the Poppyseed, but this is nice and tangy!

      Delete
    5. Honey mustard is The Misters favorite! If he did the shopping, we would be hoarding that kind! Ha.

  15. You must have subconsciously bought some it seems . . . :)

  16. Laughing - that's funny! Never had poppyseed dressing before - must try it. I don't think we have that brand here. Love the Lazy Susan idea in the fridge. Same thing when I got a new fridge a few years ago. It was larger but the shelving was shorter and not as much door space. This might solve it.

    1. It's ended up to be a great idea...that and buying the dressing in jars instead of taller bottles. But that worked out great, too, since I love this brand. Happy Day, Suzie...hope it was a good one!
