Cleaning out a kitchen cabinet,which seems was a 'bit' overdue as i came across several spice bottles,that were apparantly 'best used before' the previous millenium... :roll:

I wonder at some of these sell by dates. Why, for example, does salt have a sell by date? :?

I do see those dates as 'worst case scenario-advice' and especially with these very dry things i wouldn't mind it being a few months overdue,but i do draw the line at using things labelled best before 1998. ;) :mrgreen:
Also i'm getting more and more into using fresh ingredients,my balcony/indoor spicegarden already holds Thyme,Sage,Rosemary,Dille and Basil so far.
I do keep some (of organic origin nowadays) garlic-,turmeric-,chili-,paprika- and gingerpowder(and indeed salt- and black peppergrinders) around for easy use in sauces and the same goes for onionpowder,although there is an alternative motive there in that i do like the taste of onion but loath the texture of fried/cooked onions,so never would add them fresh myself.

One of today's smiles came from seeing this on FB :

Hmmmmm????? :evil: :evil:


:lol: Missed this the first time around. So, yes, I could do that. But I'm irresistibly attracted to large, naughty dogs. It's like a character flaw. That's why it needs to be somebody else's dog. :shifty: Border Collies are gorgeous though! A friend used to have one and he would herd all her kids and cats into the middle of the living room! :lol:

I love border collies but I would not call them well behaved, they are too intelligent and get bored easily. Can be snappy too.

I'm pretty sure Jess was half otter. She'd spend her day in the river if allowed.

She wasn't!!

RIP Jess.

Yeah, bottled water that's seeped up through the rocks for thousands of years, is then bottled and given a sell by date. :lol: :lol:

Prolly the nasties leaching from the plastic bottles. :roll:

Pretty much. Had to give out to the missus for trying to throw out a sealed thing of Christmas biccies cos they were a week passed their sell by. Let her parents munch them with a cup of tea later that day instead.
