Hereafter Known As.....





"The great pantry cleanout of 2011." (I won't kid myself and say it will be done again this year!) I found a box of untried recipes, and some booklets like the one I'm showing here - but nothing as cute as this!  I really hope that you can click and make them larger, because the copy if amusing and some of the recipes appear to be good ones. Let me know if you cook any filet of sole.....LOL

Yesterday's continuation of the cleaning yielded a bag of chocolate chips with bloom on them - dated 2006, and two stale bags of chips and pretzels. I have quite a few bag clips; if only I could convince that man who lives here that he has to fold the bags down several times  (removing the air)  before clipping them.

If you click on the photos, they will enlarge enough to read easily.

Yar rinsen der sneakers... Love it. :) The Swedish chef was always my favorite muppet.

Judy I have a man here - who shall be nameless - who cuts off the pressable closure of the cheddar cheese bag. Arrrrrgh!

Somehow I find it comforting to know that your cabinets contain old and stale items. Just when I start thinking you are perfect.....

Now about the cookbook. I can click to enlarge the pages but still not enough to read the fine print. What was the trick you taught us once about pressing some keys or something to enlarge the page more?

I'm doing my fridge today because tomorrow is trash day. I've cooked sole -- let me know if you need a recipe!

Those are funny. I do have some old sneakers but think I really might have some swamp salad for lunch.

I love the Swedish Chef. Those bag clips...I think it's a man thing Judy. They just don't see these things the way we do. Cleaned out my refrig yesterday after all my kids and grandkids left...felt good to organize. Have a good week... ~Joy

Pat--I also sometimes cut off the pressable closure of the cheddar cheese bag. Usually, the bag does not have enough ease that I wish to go to the trouble of trying to get it closed. I just stick the package into a zippy bag.

Annie--You didn't really ask me; but, until Judy gets back...Hold down the "CTL" key while rolling the wheel of your mouse (at least, my mouse has a wheel between the two buttons). Rolling away from you increases the size of the print while rolling toward you decreases it.

Judy--Some of us are not above using 10-year-old food, depending upon what it is and how it was originally preserved/packaged. Those chocolate chips would certainly find a use in my house!
I copied off the recipe for buttered French bread (since they were kind enough to translate it to English!) LOL

I used to have a Muppet quilting book; but, I finally donated it to the library, unused (except to admire the quilts therein).

I happen to know I have a can of pumpkin in my pantry that is probably just months away from blowing its top...

It's like an experiment. :-)

At least the Choc. chips had a "bloom" on them. The ones that scare me are the ones (like Twinkies) that look pristine and yummy years later ! Ugh.

Such fun! Very cute and the recipes sound really good...Especially the "sole"...lol!

Old bags of food....UGH!!! I'm amazed they didn't attract all kinds of critters...! Keep up the good work, Judy!

AND, Granny Annie...IF you don't have a wheel on your mouse--Hold Dowm CTL Key and push the "+" button to make it bigger...I don't know if that works on pictures with text, but it works usually on Text things...then, when you are done, you press the CTL Key and "-" to make it smaller again....PLUS and MINUS. Makes sense?

I love the cookbook. I take it they play soul music while cooking the sole!
