My pantry storage containers arrived late yesterday. I want to wash them in the dishwasher, so I will do that today. They seem nice, but the tall/biggest ones aren't big enough for cereal, so I will be ordering a couple containers for some cereal storage. One of the tall skinny ones will definitely be good for spaghetti noodles. I'm not quite sure why the set includes a nice scoop. The containers are too narrow to actually scoop down into to get anything out.
DH and I have a running joke between us about spaghetti. He likes the taste of it, but he doesn't like that an hour after he eats it he's totally hungry again. He'd rather just not eat it, but I love spaghetti. So, the joke is he has to eat spaghetti 2 times a year, LOL. I made spaghetti last week and he had leftovers the second night, so he's calling it good for the year.
He made a Facebook post, with a picture of my new pantry containers and a joke that it's a good thing I ordered air tight, so I can store the spaghetti noodles that won't get eaten for another year ;). His newly reconnected with older brother had to make a comment like $3.99 to store $2 worth of spaghetti....the things that make you go hmmm...
DH was like (just to me) why do people always have to judge what we do and have? He said he knows brother doesn't mean anything malicious by it, but just typical of the way people are, I guess. I said I'll keep my mouth shut......BUT, what I would reply back would be something snarky like "$10 a DAY to suck smoke into your lungs....the things that make you go hmmm..."
I like to spend my money on things that are aesthetically pleasing to me. And I'd like to be able to keep my noodles fresher longer, so that next time (2021! haha) I make spaghetti I don't need to go to the store and buy noodles and throw out the half a bag of what I do have in the pantry.
That's why I don't "do people" LOL. Just give me my dogs, a comfy home and a good book and I'm good.
