We’re headed to a friends’ house for Thanksgiving. They are doing the dinner, so I said I’d bring the pies.
Originally, it was just a pecan pie. But, dear Mr. Serious wants pumpkin, too. Of course, after a trip to the grocery store for all of the ingredients.
I’ve never done pumpkin pie, so I pull out my trusty Betty Crocker cookbook and find the recipe. I have to get some spices and the pumpkin, but I see that it calls for evaporated milk.
I think to myself…I’m pretty sure I just saw a can of evaporated milk in the cabinet.
I go and look and I find it. Woo hoo! One less thing to buy.
Then, I look for the expiration date. July 31, 2006!!!!!
How has this been around this long? And, even more troubling…we’ve moved twice in that time. What does that say about me.
Don’t worry. I threw the can out, and added it to my list.
I’ll be bringing the pie with the freshest ingredients!!
