I've been pretty lazy about my pantry lately. I've just put what I buy wherever it fits, which has caused annoyance when we can't find things or buy things we already have. This is especially frustrating because we're doing our best not to go out shopping because of the pandemic! So I set aside a … Continue reading Reorganizing My Pantry

So, apparently I haven't kicked the strawberry habit. I bought another container of them, and look at the gem I found: Closely examined, three different strawberries are merged into one. But it's ridiculously huge! And, yes, it was delicious. Have you run into any unusually sized fruits or vegetables? What kind? Did you eat them? … Continue reading Huzzah for Giant Strawberries
