Moving logistics are in full swing. Timing movers, transport and taking possession of a house is challenging to say the least.
Today I decided to tackle the task of cleaning out the pantry. I thought I would share a few items that I had forgotten about. Which led me to wonder, why did I buy them in the first place?
I think I bought these for a catering job and then decided not to use them. But hey! If you need 42 oz of large Spanish olives I am your gal. Maybe you can make some olive loaf? Maybe not?
Here I have a giant stack of wafer paper. Mind you when I bought this I really only needed about 4 sheets but the only way to buy it was this large stack. I bought this to make an almond nougat. It failed miserably. I held on to the wafer paper planning on trying it again. That was probably a year ago.
I found a curious array of canned fish items. I do not recall buying these which leads me to believe that OB bought them. For what reason I don’t know. I can work with the crab meat but, the kipper snacks and fish steaks I’m not so sure about.
I found one lone package of ramen noodles. Again I suspect this was OB’s dinner while I was traveling.
Ok, don’t freak out. I bought these and I kind of love them. I know some of you maybe all “Ewwww! Octapus!” But trust me it’s good stuff. Makes a great kind of ceviche salad. I make it as a quick snack sometimes and serve it with toast or crackers. Don’t judge! I’ll post the recipe one day and you can try it for yourself and then judge me.
FYI, I HATE strawberry flavored anything, especially quick. Reality check, this is not what strawberries taste like. The only reason this exist in my pantry is because a friend asked me to make them a strawberry cake like the one you buy in the stores. I tried and failed. I think it’s time for strawberry quick and I to part ways.
I don’t know, don’t remember and don’t understand.
You know sometimes you want to pretend you’re an astronaut and so you drink a glass of Tang.
There you have it, just a few random items I found back in the dark corners of my pantry. If you were to go right now to your pantry what would be the most random item we would find?
Alright, time to get back to work.
