I don't expect to find it. It's been missing too long and I don't smell anything bad.

I wonder if others have legendary missing items in their kitchen? Mrs. .40 and I are still missing a Sams 3-pack of Aluminum foil after 10 years and a kitchen remodel.

We know we brought it home from the store because we took one roll and used it and put the other two in the cabinet. After a few weeks we needed the next roll and both of them had disappeared.

Now it's a running joke. Anytime an item is lost...it must be next to the aluminum foil.

I lose dried beans...I move them and move them and when I decide I want to use them, they are gone. Maybe I'm cooking them up in my sleep and eating them, 'cuz there is no way DH would cook them.

I lose things in my pantry. I go searching for something I know I bought and can't find it. Usually it is right in front of me. I don't think I've lost any cheese, but most anything else one could think of - I've lost.I'm still not as bad as dh is about losing things. My sister and brother in law gave him a saw and drill with the chargers and he thinks he either threw it away or closed it up in a wall when he did some construction.

I tend to toss out new pizza cutters with the delivery box...

If I go to the thrift store and buy an old, gnarly one with a cracked handle, it will stick around forever, but as soon as I toss it for a new one, I have to go buy another gnarly...I'm going to quit buying new pizza cutters.

TAKE NOTE!

I purchased another wedge of Parm Reg today. I placed it in the cheese drawer of the refrigerator. Later when I went back, it was still there.

Stay tuned...
