just plain embarrassing

I came home from the store today and decided to do a little refrigerator reorganizing before I loaded it up with the new goods. This is what I found.



Yes, count them, one, two, three, four sour creams! I don't know if you can read the expirations or not, but I'll go ahead and tell you that only one of those bad boys is still good, and wouldn't you know, it's the nasty fat free one.

Believe it or not, sour cream is my weak spot, or maybe more my blind spot. I can't ever remember if I have any, so I always grab one of the little Kroger brand containers when I'm out, to cover all my bases. Looks like I've got the bases full and one on deck!

Oh my. Maybe one day I'll get it all together and look in my fridge BEFORE I shop.

I do the exact same thing! It's the time you think you have it and you don't that makes you want to stock up all the time!

...and I forgot to buy sour cream today at the grocery store. If we were only neighbors, I'd come snag a container. (I'll forget about the expiration dates.)

That's funny. While my husband and I were visiting my parents at christmastime, he was making a sandwich late at night and was looking for condiments, and came across SO many expired jars it was ridiculous! I told him that he should have taken photos, but he thought it would have embarrassed my parents...I let my mom in on the secret, and she laughed and said that she would have LOVED to see those photos!

We're talking expiration dates from 2005...when he and I were still engaged! :)

I always pick up a bag of shredded cheese of some sort! You're not alone!

I do that all the time and my husband thinks I'm the only one. Livona

Good luck with the plan before you shop plan :) I could open a tinned tomatoes outlet in my house at the moment. And a pasta sauce one. And a cream cheese one. I think I'm "gonna" make all these great recipes, but then when it gets home the food disappears into some black hole lurking in the pantry and the fridge :(

This is hilarious. I did the exact same thing today and with sour cream too. 3 of the 4 are going out with the trash tomorrow. Sad thing is I hardly ever cook with it...just one casserole and special dips. I have no idea why I always buyt it!

I totally do this... specifically with sourcream too!!! It's sort of a staple in our house so i always grab one... that's problem if for some reason we go a week without needing it for the dinners I planned!
