Wow! All that apple cider for only 99 cents! What a deal right? They rarely have apple cider even available at my grocery store so I got super excited and even considered somehow getting two containers of it home. Good thing I did not put my poor back in jeopardy because I came home to find out that the apple cider’s expiry date was that day. It was a real V8 moment for me. Someone smack my forehead!
This is my chronic foodie mistake. I tend to forget to check expiry dates all the time. What is worse and even more embarrassing is, sometimes I have no idea what today’s date is. Heck, sometimes I have no idea what day of the week it is, thanks to living in a fibro fog. So even when I do check expiry dates I can not figure out how fresh the food is until I get home.
Last night I was speaking with friends and found out that they had made apple cider with a ton of cloves and tried to figure out what was wrong with it. I knew one friend who misread a chili recipe and got the quantities of chili powder and cayenne powder mixed up! The mistake I make in my kitchen all the time is not reading the entire recipe only to find out something takes hours to make and my tummy can not wait until midnight to eat!
I would love to hear your classic foodie mistake! Why not celebrate our stories and get over the foodie trauma together? It happens to everyone so be not afraid to confess your foodie mistakes here.
