I took out a box of graham cracker crumbs, had expired in 2017 so trashed it. ; ) Then I thought I’ll just make a regular crust. In the meantime I knew I had a can of apple filling but forgot I can’t open cans.
My canopener bit the dust yesterday opening a can of spinach, an adventure in itself. The spinach was in a poptop can and of course it broke off. Can opener wouldn’t work, maybe the edge was too high. I tried an old beer can opener, no luck, still the lid too deep. Corkscrew attempt failed, so I finally stabbed it with a butter knife, causing a mess, but by that time I was determined…and it was a can of apple filling-need I go on? I can hear you groaning, please don’t!
It may seem I use a lot of canned items, but it’s the end of the month and fresh ingredients don’t last in once a month shopping trips.
I could have made popcorn but was not in the mood. I bought a jar of marshmallow fluff at Christmas time just in case the kids were over and wanted to make fudge. No expiration date…think it’s like twinkies, probably never goes bad–creepy! I always have chocolate chips in freezer for kids when they stop by. But I was too lazy to make fudge. I have a microwave fudge recipe that is the kids’ favorite but I prefer the old harder kind.
