I Love a Mystery

Excuse me? I don't DO mystery food.

Our little bunny buddy would fit right in here. See, I finished doing the archeology project in the freezer today. Found my missing Lemon Drop chili peppers (yay!), separated a huge bag of oriental veggies and a huge bag of whole kernel corn into more reasonable pint portions, bagged up a freshly cooked batch of black beans and managed to fit everything ever so neatly on each shelf. I not only have a clue about the contents of my freezer, I can even find the different items.

Except for the mystery food.

Every now and then I pick up a 2-pint container of Nancy's Plain Yogurt. The handy thing is, after you've emptied the carton, you can use it to save leftover food in the freezer. They even have a space on the side where you can label the carton so you know what's in it. The trouble here (you know what's coming) is that I neglected to do the label thing. I remember thinking there would be no problem remembering what I'd tucked inside. I don't remember what I would have no problem remembering.

I could have popped the lid to see if I could figure out what was in there. Decided to hold off on immediate exposure because where's the challenge in that? No, I'm sure it will be a lot more fun to speculate. If there were more of me hanging out here, I could even run an office pool for guesses.

Oh, wait. The Voices are informing me they're willing to play. Well, alrighty. We have us a horse race. One Voice has already hollered out, "Taco soup!" and another Voice chimed in with, "Naw, it's a noodle casserole." Personally, I'm thinking it's a veggie soup with rice. I'll wait a bit to see if anyone else jumps in the pool and then we'll have the Grand Opening. Winner gets to eat the contents.

Real neat stuff!! Truly something that interests me. Mysteries are always fascinating.
BTW! I have been following this another thing I came across. It’s sort of abstract and interesting. It’s something to do with some Legend
By the way, good writing style. I'd love to read more on similar topics

Well, Dee, if you were my age or even near it, there'd be no mystery whatsoever. It would be an unopened 2-pint container of Nancy's Plain Yogurt which I was sure I had put in the refrigerator.

The picture reminds me of the tiels in this house. Pookie would eat anything including your mystery I bet.

Dee said...

Thank you, Shalini. The link you provided is intriguing.

Bill, it has nothing to do with age, m'deah. I've been doing that sort of thing all my life. (smile) Makes it hard to know when one is actually showing dementia symptoms.

Bonnie, Pookie may HAVE to eat my mystery food, depending on how it looks when I thaw it out.

Sorry I've been AWOL - only a moment or two, when I'm working.

Caught up on all the posts -

Glad you found the Lemon Drop chili Peppers! I was wondering if you would! ;)

Right now I've got a HUGE bag of frozen shredded cheddar cheese that Jim bought from Sam's Club. Shoulda broken that up into sections...hummm. Hindsight! lol.

Can't wait to see what it turns out to be!
