From the Internet – Discerning Spoiled Food in Your Kitchen


Anything that make you gag is spoiled, except for leftovers from what you cooked for yourself last night.

When something starts pecking its way out of the shell, the egg is probably past its prime.

Daily products
Milk is spoiled when it starts to look like yogurt. Yogurt is spoiled when it starts to look like cottage cheese. Cottage cheese is spoiled when it starts to look like regular cheese. Regular cheese is nothing but spoiled milk anyway and can’t get any more spoiled that it is already . . . unless it’s getting blue and furry, then you’d better back off.

If it makes you violently ill after you eat it, the mayonnaise is spoiled.

Frozen foods
Frozen foods that have become an integral part of the defrosting problem in your freezer compartment will probably be spoiled by the time you pry them out with a kitchen knife.

If opening the refrigerator door causes stray animals from a three-block radius to congregate outside your house, the meat is spoiled.

Fresh potatoes do not have roots, branches, or dense, leafy undergrowth.

Empty containers
Putting empty containers back into the refrigerator is an old trick, but it only works if you have a wife or a maid.

General Rule of Thumb
Most food cannot be kept longer than the average life span of a hamster. Keep a hamster in your refrigerator to gauge this.

Observing the Liturgical Year!

There was an older couple that had fought almost constantly since the day they had been married over 25 years ago. Since they were Catholic, they both knew that divorce was out of the question. As Lent approached, the wife said to her husband, “Look, we both know that we can’t go on like this. Why don’t we pray this Lent that the Lord take one of us home. . .that way I can go and live with my sister.”
