Hello and happy Tuesday! Thanks so much for joining us. We love having you with us!

Here is this week’s challenge:

Time to get random. What’s in your fridge right now? No cheating!

Let me start by saying I am not a hoarder. Really, I am not. But I always have a full (to bursting) refrigerator (and freezer and pantry). I love to cook and being spontaneous is fun. So, I like having all the necessary ingredients to suit my cooking mood. But I also feel secure when my fridge is packed with good things to eat. Am I afraid of a disaster? Could a hurricane happen tomorrow? Possible. Or a zombie apocalypse? Unlikely. But you never know.

As for the actual contents: I have all kinds of salad dressings in the door. Olives, condiments, along with beer and wine. The top shelf is milk and coffee creamer and assorted jellies and whipped cream. The other shelves are stocked with salad fixings and bread and leftovers (yes, I always cook too much for one meal). And the drawers are filled with cheeses and lunchmeat and potatoes and celery, etc. And there is never a time when the shelves are lacking. There is always enough for at least a week’s worth of meals (if you include the freezer and pantry).

I think it was the way I was raised. No, we never went hungry and my mother never cooked. But the kitchen was always ready for anything. I learned to cook at a very young age (otherwise I might have starved if I had to depend on dear old mom). So, I encouraged having lots of stuff at hand. And it carried over into adulthood.

So there you have it. One of my quirks that I’ll probably never change.

Now let’s hop over to the fantastic Andie Fenichel and hear about her refrigerator. But first, you have to check this out!

Dragon Of My Dreams is NOW AVAILABLE on AMAZON

Dragon of My Dreams

Monster Between the Sheets series

Diego 

Being a dragon in a town filled with monsters isn’t so bad. A bunch of scales and wings isn’t the worst affliction to hit this town’s residents. However, I don’t like being alone or having people run away when they see me. And with more humans moving to town, that happens more and more. Most of the time, I keep to myself or with a select group of good friends who are also monsters. I sell my jewelry and rent space in my art gallery. It’s a dreary but acceptable way to live.

The moment Scarlett walks into my jewelry shop, she changes everything. Becomes my everything. I can tell that she’s hiding something, and I’m almost certain someone in her past hurt her. As a man and a dragon, that’s not something I can live with. Now that she’s entered my dragon’s lair, I’ll do anything to protect her.  

Scarlett 

I stumbled upon Screamer Woods by accident. The unique residents make it the perfect place to hide out from my ex. He may find me anyway—he has before—but this place is so far off the beaten path, it may take a while. In the meantime, I can sell some artwork and refill my coffers before I have to run again.

Seeing a vampire or a fairy doesn’t scare me. I know what a real monster is and does. Meeting Diego is an unexpected bonus. Too bad I’ll have to bolt soon. I could get used to the way Diego looks at me. The way he makes me feel. If only the monster in my past would stay away and let me live happily ever after with the dragon of my dreams.
