This post tops the list?
Honored. I am honored, I tell you. And I certainly hope that the reader who arrived at my humble blog after asking that question was frightened into cleaning out her fridge, lest she end up with condiment overload also.
You know, I really like that post. It sums up my housekeeping issues very nicely.
But it also made me realize that we are overdue here, people. It's time.
First, I'd like to present our Holiday Collection: the cut celery sticks (top) are from New Year's Day, the potroast and carrots (do not enlarge, you will be sorry) are from Christmas (not typical Noel fare, but we were celebrating Chanukah late - long story); and the vegetable stock? Hails all the way from Thanksgiving.
I know, I know - sometimes I just outdo myself.
The other food-poisoning contestants:
- In the metal pot, some leftover matzo ball soup (homemade!) that I cooked a couple of weeks ago for comfort food. It worked; but now all the matzo balls are gone, so what's the point?
- Hmmm....I don't know what is in the top round dish in the center. Any guesses?
- Green beans - no need to explain why these weren't gobbled up, right?
- Extra rice - we always seem to have extra rice. Why? Discuss.
- 2 open bags of baby carrots - they sneaked into the picture when I wasn't looking. They haven't gone bad yet. YET. They know they're doomed.
The container of mayo you see to the right? Is how I know that my best friend doesn't really read my blog. You see, shortly after the condiment overload post referenced above, this friend came by my house with this jar of mayonnaise. "Here," she said. "I figured you could use it."
(Me, confused) "What?"
"Take it," she said. "My husband got one of those huge jars at Costco and I knew we couldn't finish it in time, so I put some in a smaller jar to give to you."
"You're kidding me, right? This is a joke?"
Talk about bringing coals to Newcastle...
