I Can't Believe it's my Fridge!

Who needs a fridge makeover and $100?
Last week we took EVERYTHING out of our fridge and really cleaned it out (I won't scare you with a picture or details). I realized that a big part of healthy eating is keeping your fridge organized and stocked with good-for-you products.
So, this week, we are having a
"I Can't Believe That's my Fridge!"
Makeover Contest

sponsored by
I Can't Believe it's Not Butter!
I didn't have any help cleaning out my fridge, but I Can't Believe it's Not Butter! is going to give one of you lucky folks a $100 Grocery Gift Card, Reach Right Kit, and a disposable camera to document the transformation.

Here are some tips to get you started:
-Start with a clean-out!
-Fill it with fresh, healthy food
-Start cooking with the fresh taste of butter, the healthier way

Time's up!
We have a winner! I couldn't decide between the touching, gross, and amazing stories you sent in, so after we were done gagging, we picked a random winner...

"Why do I need a fridge makeover? Okay, I've never been the best at keeping things spotless and the fridge cleaned out, but one time in college I was living with four other girls. The black sludge dripping down the side of the fridge was a bit of a hint it might be time to clean the fridge inside and out..."

I have to say that I LOVE I Can't Believe it's Not Butter! I keep the spray at all times in my fridge and it really makes the veggies disappear for my toddler. I also just started experimenting with it in baking and was pleasantly surprised! Here's a fresh and fabulous recipe for you to try this week:
Grilled Eggplant Caprese Salad from I Can't Believe it's Not Butter!
- 4 Tbsp. I Can't Believe It's Not Butter!® Mediterranean Blend spread, divided-
1 medium eggplant, sliced into 1/4-inch-thick rounds
- 1/2 cup balsamic vinegar
- 2 Tbsp. finely chopped onion
- 2 cloves garlic, finely chopped
- 1/2 tsp. sugar- 2 large tomatoes, sliced
- 8 ounces fresh mozzarella cheese, sliced
- 1/4 cup very thinly sliced fresh basil leaves

Microwave 3 tablespoons I Can't Believe It's Not Butter!® Mediterranean Blend spread in small microwave-safe bowl at HIGH 30 seconds or until melted. Evenly brush onto both sides of eggplant slices. Grill or broil, turning frequently, until tender; cool.

Meanwhile, bring vinegar, onion and garlic to a boil in 1-quart saucepan over medium-high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer, stirring occasionally, 15 minutes or until liquid is reduced by half. Stir in sugar until dissolved. Cool slightly, then stir in remaining 1 tablespoon Mediterranean Blend. Cool to room temperature.

Alternately layer eggplant, tomatoes and mozzarella on serving platter. Top with basil, then drizzle with balsamic reduction.

An update on our cooking contest--I am working with our sponsor and need a couple more weeks to get ready. But, here's a preview...
In May, we will be having a Lip Smackin' Healthy Food Cookoff where you can enter your very best grilling recipe! And the grand prize winner will get....you guessed it, a beautiful new grill! Yowza! We also have some amazing prize packs put together for the other two "runners-up" and I even snagged a celebrity chef for my judging panel! So, fire up those grills and start practicing while we fine-tune the details.
Disclosure: I Can't Believe it's Not Butter! provided the $100 Grocery Gift Card, Reach Right Kit, and a disposable camera for this contest. I was not compensated in any way for this post.
