It was the lesser of three evils when it came time to store the extras.

snip, i can't believe you guys--all of you who are writing these lengthy, itemized lists of pantry foods for the 'fun' of it! FUN? what fun?--fun like what, fun like cleaning out an overflowing junk drawer is fun? and me, i can't believe ME, coz here i am ReADING all you guy's long itemized lists of cupboard foods, what used to be called 'staples' (cause they're boring) what is wrong with us?!
too much time on our hands? this reminds me snippers, of the time you accused me of starting a thread simply because i had nothing better to do. you had it right that time, and i think, except for a possible ocd factor, and nosiness (guilty) for another, i'm right about the missing 'fun quotient' of a pantry raid thread.
oh, and snip--instant beet soup! where would i find it, and what form does it come in?

Well it's true isn't it?! We clearly have too much time for BS on DC
It still beets how to boil and egg

I get the beetroot soup from my sister in law. Her mom brings it from Poland. You can buy it online.

It's a pleasure! The beet soup is fab!

Why bother? People will lie about booze and meds

Do you think anyone will admit to the contents of their meds cabinets?

Besides, I keep my vodka in my OMO box

I don't have a medicine cabinet for humans, but you would not believe what I have for canines! Vet wrap is my favorite bandage...and who knew applying xylacaine (sp) topically could stop the pain of a sciatica nerve?

a friend of mine gleefully reported having easy and abundant access to morphine, thanks to a hip injury that her dog was being treated for....
