I did get one thing done today. I cleaned out my lazy susan cabinet. You read that correctly - not cabinets, just cabinet. I don't like to put too much pressure on myself.
I've been wanting, no needing to do this for some time now. It was interesting. And it brought to mind this question:
Can we learn anything about a person by looking at the foods that are in his/her cabinets?
I took everything out. Even the stuff that had fallen off of the spinning shelves and been lost in the dark corners. I was surprised at some of the things I found.
1. I may be a hoarder. Especially of relish.
2. I am not brand loyal.
1. I like popcorn.
2. I believed Orville Redenbacher when he told me his popcorn was better.
I just thought the relish and the popcorn was hoarding. Eight bottles of salad dressing? Seriously? What can I learn about myself from this?
1. I have good intentions of eating lots of green, leafy salad, but apparently I don't actually do it.
2. I try to please the varied palettes of my friends and family.
1. I can give up on the instant oatmeal. I'm just not going to eat it for breakfast. I am a sausage biscuit kind of gal.
2. No one at my house will make their own hot chocolate, even if I have the cute little marshmallows.
3. If I put the vanilla wafers in the cabinet, Baby Jus will not eat them.
Here are few more of my discoveries.
1. The other night when I was looking for capers, they were in the cabinet.
2. When other people help me put groceries away, no matter that we have all lived in this house for exactly the same number of years, they put things in the wrong place.
3. The other day when I was certain that I had a bottle of vanilla; I did. It was in the wrong cabinet.
4. Cleaning out the canned goods is much more pleasant than cleaning out the fridge.
