Does anyone put food away? You know. Store it for an emergency. I canned tomatoes this summer. Those jars are history. They are waiting for this summer’s harvest. They are stored on the shelves beneath my store bought food stuffs. Food stuffs. That’s a peculiar phrase.
Mr. M was addicted to the salsa and I did my fair share of cleaning out the jars. Mr. M also likes to have his shelves stocked as if a mini grocery store was in our garage. Today, I hit Costco to start restocking Mother Hubbard’s cupboards. Although the store bought stuff isn’t as good as home canned, it’s nice to have a few items on the shelves. I have a nifty can rotating system too. The can is pulled from the bottom. The other cans in line behind roll forward. Pretty cool.
It certainly says a lot about my stage of life when I store the kosher salt, apple sauce, onions, and Listerine next to Elton John and the Average White Band.
Perhaps a serious intervention is in my future. Maybe after I organize the shelves a bit better.
