The oven was preheating..the scent of pumpkin, cloves, cinnamon and ginger were in the air..sugar and spices were swirled together, the 2 eggs installed :-) into the bowl..and then..time for some evaporated milk. Well, I brought down from out of the cupboard 3 five oz. cans of milk. All out of date. One by 2 months, the others a YEAR! The plumber was expected within half an hour hence, I had to stay home. So I put it all in the fridge till they got here and left again.
Girls and boys, kitties and doggies, don't ever do OR let happen to you this next thing I am going to tell you about. I got my trusty step stool and went to the top shelves in the cabinet and pulled out cans and looked at dates. There were 6 cans of Progresso soup waaaaay out of date. There were 3 cans of Campbell's cream of mushroom out of date. Since I recycle, I had to empty each can (I do not have a garbage disposal unit) wash it out and pitch it in my recycle bin. The gloop..I put in a double garbage bag and in the trash till I can go to the disposal center tomorrow. I don't want to leave anything questionable out for wild animals. Not even the 'coons and coyotes. And, it's an awful waste of food too. But I believe I have learned from it.
I have the pie in the oven as we speak. When I go to Charlotte next weekend a week from now I will take the makings for an apple crisp.
I have fed her Majesty and I am munching on graham crackers. I had a huge bowl of my homemade vegetable beef soup for supper last night and lunch today. Nummy in the tummy.
SO good to see several more of the blog family here. ♥♥♥
