I'm glad our female cardinal is fat and fluffy. It's cold outside!
I have gotten in the spring fever mode recently.
I have been going through my kitchen cabinets and refrigerator . . . and tossing stuff.
Do you ever let things on your shelves go out of date?
Some products don't have any dates on them, some have 'best if used by' dates and some have 'sell by' dates.
My buttermilk often goes 'out of date' in the fridge. But I still use it. I let my husband give it the sniff and taste test.
Bread also gets the sniff test. If it smells moldy when I open the bag, but I still don't see any, I usually toss it if it is out of date. But since I often put an extra loaf of bread in the freezer when I get it, I can't always go by the date.
I found a site here that tells you about expiration dates on certain foods.
Here is another article on WEBMD about dates on foods.
What do you do with out of date products you find in your cabinets or refrigerator?
Instantly throw them away.
Think about it for a while, then toss them.
Use them up real fast and hope they are okay.
Toss them, but don't let your husband see you do it. (I do this one a lot)
I've got a bag of expired items ready to go out in the trash on Thursday.
I promised myself I wasn't going to let things expire again. Hope I can keep that promise. I hate wasting food.
Now, onto my bookshelves, which contain as much 'stuff' as they do books!
