Wanna come over for dinner?

Our chapter of Chi Sigma Iota up at school is doing a holiday food drive, so yesterday I began rummaging through the pantry for things to donate. I won't go through all of the fun things I discovered during my search, but here's something I thought was worth sharing:

One innocent box of Tuna Noodle Helper*...

Not just expired....


But, so old that even the Box Tops for Education are too old to salvage.

Damn.

To reframe this in a more positive light, I guess this just means that I am such a wonderful cook, I don't need to use tuna casserole from a box. Right???

BTW - I did not donate the expired Tuna Noodle Helper to the food drive. That just wouldn't be right, would it?

And, for those of you who only visit the site for news of Sparky, here's a little clip to keep you happy.

*"I don't know why they call it Hamburger Helper... It does just fine by itself."
**What is my obsession with expired food? I guess I just find it funny... As evidenced here, and here. Although, there may be more posts that I couldn't find right away. I can't quite be sure.

He's just too darn cute!

And I love the way Kramer observes for a while, then walks away like he's bored.

Is Kramer the cat? He might just be smart....that is one cute baby....as for the outdated food...i am the same way. Every 2 years when my son and his family visit, they go thru the cupboards and get rid of the old stuff. I've only had one can explode in 10 years so i figure I'm doing OK.

If the box top didn't expire until this last summer then that expiration date on the top of the box itself is only from the day before you posted....unless the 06 is the year and the 08 is the day...so confusing....

I don't know about you, but I was trained as a youth to always be on the lookout for expired food. "Check the DATE!" my mom would utter as soon my fingers touched a gallon of milk or loaf of bread....
