As I was trying to title this decided couldn't really say confessions of a homemaker (not me), hmmm other titles? Anyway, we've been doing further spring cleaning and tackling the pantry. We have a big pantry that I love ... we could fit a bed in there if we wanted and right now we have much more room! Steve just helped me go through all the food -- we had some canola oil that expired in '01 - wondering why it even made the move to this house. This vanilla gallon Steve thinks we have had since we were married - I don't think so (Natalie can you remember this from your childhood days!)however, it has been around a long time! Anyway, feels great to have the pantry nice and clean and we're going to be more organized on using what we buy, buying what we will use - this adjusting to cooking (or not really even cooking very much) for two has been that - an adjustment!
Thanks, Cricket for being willing to pose by a small portion of the expired food! And as noted by expired - I mean several years! Steve and I got the giggles laughing about it. To make it more funny, today I teach a lesson in Sunday School on The Roles of Mom -- whew I just read through the top ten list and it mentions nothing about cooking... just being together at mealtimes.
