I'm back...and with some very useful information!

Whew! I have, for one reason or another, been freaking busy lately. Oh, I've thought about pecking the keyboard a time or two, but a lot can happen in the 16 steps on the way upstairs.

One thing burning a hole in my pocket is this PSA: check your cabinet for expired spices! I ran across this ad in the Sunday circular a week ago:

"What?!?" I say to myself. "Who could possible allow a container of any spice reside in their cabinet for FIFTEEN YEARS before using it all??"

Uh, well, that would be me. Here's what lurked in the deepest recesses of my cabinet:

It's interesting to think this "valuable" item was worth packing up and moving from apartment to house to apartment, etc., about six times.

So please tell me I'm not the only one. Please go check your cabinet and let me know if you found any similar relics!

I am going to check on this, my brother in law is a head manager at the Baltimore, MD plant.

When my husband and I were married 5 years ago I was cleaning the kitchen and decided to go through the spices. Most of them actually had a little yellow price sticker on them, harkening back to the days of those little pricing guns. They also said "Safeway". There hasn't been a Safeway Market in our city for 20 years.

Well, I know I don't have any that are 15 years old, but I do have spices that I bought when I first moved out on my own, which was 9 years ago now. Probably time for a purge!
