I found my sunglasses in the freezer with the food. I also drove to work one day with a fried egg sandwich on the roof of my car. I placed it on there to open the door and got in and drove off with it still on the roof. It fell off at the end of the driveway. My wife noticed it when she looked out after I had just left.

I was pleasantly surprised by something I pulled out of the freezer last week. It was red. I figured it for spaghetti sauce or something... maybe chili, but it was shredded beef in a deep reddish brown sauce of some sort. It was thick like a stew, but not nearly the ingredients, just onion (that I noticed). I ate it for lunch, the whole time wishing I had labeled it so I could make it again. I still don't know what it was I ate for lunch that day, but it was delicious

Claire, the sugars sound very similar from what I've read.

my biggest problem is forgetting fresh vegs. don't ever want to the money total of slimy brown things that had to be thrown away. just found a can of crisco in among the baking pans. no clue how it got there but it was no good. has to have been there for several years. i recently put all the indg. for baking in one cupboard. it is working well that way.

I have that happen too. I thought I was going crazy. We ran out of peanut butter so i went to the pantry to get the second jar from a package of two. Lo and behold it was not there. Upon closer examination quite a few backup items were missing. I was very confused, I remember buying them last time we were at the grocery. It took me two days to realize that my visiting daughter had abscounded with my pantry items! I have a meat freezer and a veggie/berry freezer in the basement so I'm somewhat organized, I hope. She really threw me for a loop!

My first year in college the student in the dorm next door used up all my food and cooking supplies while I was working through the weekend. The following Monday I threw away all his underwear.

Sounds reasonable to me!

I always forget food in my freezer. I then discover them when I rearrange the freezer.

Yes! I finally found out that one of my trusted employees was a kleptomaniac. She stole a rolled rump roast, canned crab meat and chocolate chips to name a few. I couldn't imagine what happened to these things until one day she said, "You've got so much food you don't even know what you've got."

Needless to say, she is no longer my employee.

I like your way of thinking!

I loose things all the time in the fridge. They usually get shoved to the back. I keep the pantry pretty organized.
