5 Must-Haves

In Your Fridge

A FULLY stocked fridge is a thing of beauty. But if you had to choose just five essentials for your refrigerator what would they be? Here's our short list.

Eggs: They're versatile, last a long time and look good in those plastic holders in the refrigerator door. Good for breakfast, an egg sandwich for lunch and an omelette for a quick dinner.

Butter: It's not like butter. It is butter.

Cheese: Cheese plus eggs equals omelette. Cheese plus bread plus butter equals grilled cheese sandwich.

Mayonnaise: Without mayo, your ability to make a sandwich is severely impaired. And when we say mayo we mean Best Foods, not that Miracle Whip crap.

Beer: This one is pretty self-explanatory. A bottle of beer cheers up the insides of any fridge.
