Note to self: do not allow DH to become involved in food storage. The last time I packaged up some long term storage buckets with extra staples (rice, flour, etc), DH helped me out. Guess what's missing? My bucket mallet! I checked his tools, camping equipment - even the kiddo's toybox. Nope, nada, nowhere to be seen. In frustration, I asked DH to find it... still no sight of it!
This is me, stomping my feet, because I bought 25 pounds of oats (remember, I make my own dog treats) and I needed to empty it into SOMETHING. It's been sitting there for two weeks on top of the deep freezer waiting... and I guess it will be waiting until DH's next day off so I can buy another one.
$50 says it shows up later that night. (Looking at it on the bright side, two is one, and one is none when something goes wrong, right?)
Oh, and FYI - I killed yet another can opener. $14.95 Kitchen Aid this time. I give up! It's time to find restaurant quality, heavy duty - or use a P38. (My fingers are cringing just thinking of it.)
