I'm not the best housekeeper in the world, I tend to ignore as much as possible and I'm quite good at that. (Just watch out and step back when I'm in cleaning mode)
But one thing I do notice is dust bunnies. And this place has plenty of them. Of course that doesn't mean I jump up and get the vacuum every time I see one. No No No.
The thing is, the bunnies were big and bad enough when they were just dust and fluff and my hair.
Now there's cat hair in the mix!
So the bunnies are bigger. And fluffier. And underfoot.
Not to mention under every damned thing else!
Time to get out the vacuum cleaner. Sigh.
So let's talk about Saffron.
Y'all know Saffron?
No no, not Zac Effron!
Little tiny threads of stuff that cost half a week's budget and are supposed to turn rice a lovely golden colour.
I see it all the time in magazines and recipe books.
Yellow as the sun. Golden deliciousness.
Well, I don't know where they get their saffron from, because I've bought saffron several times over the years and my saffron rice has never been golden. Never. Not once.
My saffron rice is pale pink. Like a pastel baby blanket pink.
Anyone else have this trouble? Is there more than one kind of saffron? Where do I get the stuff that turns my rice golden?
While we're on the subject of meatloaf, let me tell you I had a nice surprise when clearing out the freezer the other day. I was going shopping and knew I would need freezer space, so I emptied everything out to rearrange it. Now, my freezer isn't overly large, not one of those gigantic, out in the garage, fit two full sized deer in there, jobs.
My freezer is at the bottom of my fridge and has two slide out baskets with a slide out shelf above them. That's it. So you wouldn't think anything would get lost in there. Right? Well, something did.
I emptied the freezer and there at the back left corner of the bottom basket was a blue oblong lunchbox. A totally forgotten, blue oblong lunchbox.
Containing several flat packages of sliced garlic meatloaf, ready for sandwiches.
Woo-Hoo!! Lunch! Several lunches in fact. So I took out one package to thaw for my lunchtime sammich, and repacked the freezer, being sure to put that blue oblong lunchbox right at the front.
What's gotten lost and forgotten in your freezer?
