Wow! For real????
Makes me feel better though, because I always have things in the fridge or on the shelves which are a LOT older than they're supposed to be that I use without any problems.
I think some expiration dates are like those warnings on TV medication ads....just avoiding lawsuits or something.
I think what he meant by "100 years" was that he's never seen any go bad, or knows of any that went bad. Just meant it will last a LONG, LONG TIME in the fridge. And yes, it seems that anything consumable has to have an expiration date on it, whether it needs it or not. I think most times they just pick a number out of the air.
Whew these multi-quotes keep a fella on his toes!
Well, I have to do multi-quotes because I only get on here once or twice a day, and if I don't click on multi-quote, I'll forget what I was going to say. Sometimes I forget anyway, LOL!
I have not made puff pastry - just croissants (hardest bread I have made)….So I assume you make home baked bread as well? Like you making cheese, I rarely find a bread in stores or restaurants for that matter, better than mine (biased a bit
Alton Brown! I am hooked on most anything Food Network type - I like the British Baking Show as well
Yes, I do make my own bread, it's so much better. Puff pastry's not hard, but man, it takes forEVER, and I simply haven't had time in the last several years. Mostly it was due to the intensive management (and constant monitoring) needed for Zipper. Now when I have spare time to do something fancy in the kitchen, I remember why, and get all sad again. I know it will pass, but dang, it's taking a long time.

Maybe the fact that Di's videos would be of dogs and kids and stuff, and my stories are about cows and chickens and broken fences and guineas stuck on the barn roof and stuff like that. I've sometimes wished, though, that I could find someone to go through all my old cow forum posts and paste them to Word documents, just so they're all in the same place and easier to sort through and put in a more fluid story form.
I quoted the wrong post, but this one still had the picture in it. I seriously haven't ever seen such a cute picture in my life! They're SO CUTE!!!!!!
On another note, I slept in until 5:00 this morning (it was cold in here and I was snuggled down into my warm blankie) and by the time I took my yogurt out of the "incubator" (the oven with the light turned on) it was tart. Eh, it's OK, but I prefer it sweeter rather than tart. I'm going to have to start making my yogurt in the morning, and then I can take it out after 6 or 8 hours instead of 12 or whatever it ends up being when I don't make it until the afternoon. As long as I don't need the oven for something else. Now I remember why I started doing it overnight.
You know what? I need two ovens! But first I need a bigger house that two ovens could fit in.
Wish in one hand, and... well, you know the rest.
