Boy, I hope I get outta the Scullery soon! I’m running outta alliterations! Nooo!!!! I can’t believe it! Don’t test me!
The series so far.
Alright, now we’re in the midst of Seven Seconds Scullery Scaffolding. What in the world does scaffolding have to do with the Scullery?? Well, here’s my take on it. Google defines it as “a temporary structure on the outside of a building, made usually of wooden planks and metal poles, used by workers while building, repairing, or cleaning the building.” So, I’m taking the cleaning part, and applying it to the fridge. Got it? No, not that it matters to you.
So, the inside of the fridge is a fright!!
This is the top shelf. Can you see those open cans?? Look behind the pie!
Yeah, had to trash those!
And later, I found out, thanks to PP’s discriminating taste buds, that the milk was rotten too. Sorry, baby! Omie didn’t mean to!
(If you squint, can’t you see how the wire shelves look like scaffolding??)
Second shelf, the 2 dozen eggs that I bought for DD2’s birthday breakfast. On Feb 23. At least it was 2017!! And at least 1 of the yogurt boxes was completely empty. Huh. And more open cans. Can you say yuck!! I thought ya could!
The 3rd shelf. Green eggs, (I’m sure by now) and ham. (At least I think that’s ham, all bundled up under there. Probably it’s green by now too.) And that yogurt is at least 7 months old. Another toss without opening.
Yay! At least 2 cleared, if not clean, surfaces! Oopsie! That cantaloupe is way past it’s prime. Unless old as the hills is prime time now. Poor PP, never got her ‘loupe.
Why do I have 2 lemons, for goodness’ sake?? I don’t even remember buying 1! And I sure don’t remember using it! But, it was amusing when PP opened it, and tried to drink it! Bless her little heart!! Oh, since I don’t remember which one it was, guess I better ditch both then. Probably for the best! And sadly, that Fanta is not peach. It’s mango. What a nasty trick to pull!
I didn’t even bother recycling those cans. They just all went to the trash. I do recycle, but I have my limit!
The aforementioned empty box. Recycled, of course.
The mac n cheese didn’t look so, so bad, in the first pic, so I had to dump it out some. Now you can see the true depth of the nastiness!
You can see the nastiness of this moldy mac n cheese, even with your eyes closed!
Yeah, the red stuff is cranberry sauce, from Thanksgiving. (I’m thinking about just chunking those 3, without even opening them.) Wise move, I’m sure!
So, that took the whole 15 min. Pulling it all out, and dumping it. I’m still dithering about the 3 plastic containers.
But, since a sweet lady at my church just gave me new ones last Sunday, I think I can probably just let them go….
So far 3 hrs 17 min Scullery Time, plus today’s 15, equals: 3 hrs 32 min
House Time was 5 hrs 28 min. Adding today’s 15 , Total House Time: 5 hrs 43 min
Wow, this scaffolding sure needs more support!
The worlds’ smallest bite of cheesecake. Ever.
Did ya need a microscope to see it? Yeah, it barely made a dent on my taste buds, either! But, at least she gave me a taste! Thank you, DD1, for sharing! Have I mentioned that I love SF’s yummy cheesecake??
And I might or might not, have complained to him, that I didn’t get any. Except for above referenced teaser tidbit. (I totally complained. And whined. Maybe even begged a little. I’m shameless when it comes to good food. And his cheesecake is VERY good! Even dare I say, “Excellent”!!!!)
So, 2 weeks go by.
Then, tonight I came over to blog. And I always check out the contents of his fridge. Ya know, in case he hid a salad in there for me or something!
Tonight it was OR something!!
My very own, personal cheesecake!!
(The fact that he made another one for DD1, and 2 for himself means nothing to me!)
I wasted no time getting that into my mouth!!
I’m in my own little world of gustatory delight right now!!
After some hours, (I refuse to say how many, or how few), the pan looked like this:
Farewell sweet cheesecake. You’ll always be here in my
Need: To spray in the
Then!! The fun part begins!
Will it taste good??? Has to!! It’s chocolate!! But, will I taste the pumpkin?? Who cares!! It’s chocolate!! But, what if I don’t like chocolate flavored pumpkin??? Too bad, so sad!! It’s chocolate! Also, it’s GF, so you’ll eat it, and you’ll LIKE it!! Got it?? Yes, ma’am.
I mixed, and mixed, and mi… JK!! I only mixed it 2x! But I could still see orange!! I didn’t see you doing any mixing, so can it! (“Can” it! Bwahahaha! I crack myself up!)
Anyways, so I dumped it into the crock, and put it on high for 3 hours, and went away. Mmmmm, I could just taste all that chocolately goodness!!
After 3 hours, long, hungry hours, I came back, lifted the lid, and it wasn’t cooked! What in the Sam Hill?? Did this stupid crock croak on me??
After a very brief investigation, the culprit was found.
Yeah, I had plugged in the toaster, not the crock.
WHY, oh WHY does this always happen to me??? The cooking gene skipped me entirely!! But! I’m determined to persevere!
So, I made brownies in a mug, every day for 5 days! HA! Take that, “not a cook” me!
Whaddya mean, where’s the pix?? In my tummy!! Who’s got time to take pix when there’s hot brownies waiting to be smothered in vanilla ice cream??
Ain’t it enough that I adapted quickly to the non-cooked mess, and made brownies in a mug, without having to photograph every step too??
Oh ok, babies, here’s a pic for ya whiners.
(Whaddya mean, where’s the GF brownie??? I done tole you- in ma belly!!)
Happy now?? No?? Awww, sorry. Go have an ice cream bar, and cheer up!
I sure am!! (Happy, that is.) I can now make instant, well ok, almost instant brownies, (2 and 1/2 minutes) any time!! YAY!!!
Doing my happy, GF brownie in a mug dance!!
(Stop action style!)
