Here it goes for this week.
Lessons learned this week: 1. Read the labels and don't assume.
2. If it stinks, you're probably too late.
We always buy dried garlic in our house. At least that's what I thought when I put some bulbs into a closed container so they would fit better in the cabinet. However, a bad smell proved me wrong. Apparently, sometimes, we get fresh garlic. And do you know what fresh garlic does in a closed container? It rots, and rotting garlic really stinks. When my eyes stopped watering, I was very disappointed with the whole episode. Next time, I need to pay closer attention to what I'm putting away.

|Fortunately, one bad potato doesn't spoil the whole bunch.|
Also, we had one rotten potato. I mentioned last week that I thought we might have a problem in this area, and we did. Fortunately it was only one and the rest were okay. However, we made a big pot of potato soup to avoid another stinky surprise.
