Goodies in the cupboard....

Why is it when you buy two weeks worth of groceries… the goodies are all gone by the end of the first week while the veggies and healthy stuff last forever?

the first week? mine last about the first four days…especially if im pmsing lol

Lately I’ve been really good. I haven’t been eating as much munchies…

Magnificent to behold - Greatly to be praised.

You think that’s strange, what about the Banana Principle?

No matter how many bananas you buy, you will always have two left over.

Proof: Every time we buy bananas, I always wind up throwing out two withered brown mushy bananas.

What gives?

And now, for my next trick, I will talk in spooky half-references.

When we were kids, we’d sometimes make the mistake of asking mom to get us Nestle ice cream bars.

One time, she emptied the package before the groceries were finished being put away.

You say “cheesy” like that’s a BAD thing.

looks at her banana stand to see 2 mushy black bananas OMG Sylence… you are sooo right!

Be serious!I eat all the veggies first.I love em!

The poster beneath me is really smart!

The Banana Principle at work. . . I’m going to write a paper and submit it to the Journal of Modern Physics. Maybe I’ll get a Nobel Prize for my work on Banana Quantum Theory.

I call it The Law of Diminishing Intentions.
The grocery list carefully balances very healthy stuff and stuff I actually like.
The stuff I like gets snarfed down quickly and that leaves the healthy, “good intentions” food to linger and reproach me.
BTW, besides the Banana Rule (excellent observation!), have you ever noticed that rice cakes never rot? They have a half life like plutonium, so there’s never a good excuse to just throw them out.

TVeblen- That quality of rice cakes that you mention is precisely what makes them excellent camping food. Spread with peanut butter. . . mmmmmmm.

You’re right. I’ve used them for camping and backpacking. They do last well, though I slurped an alarming amount of water trying to gum the things down.
I’m embarrassed to say I have resorted to smashing them to bits in a plastic bag, mixing the crumbs w/ obscene amounts of butter, chopped garlic, parmesan cheese & herbs, etc. to use as toppings on “desperation” casseroles.
Which of course pretty well blows their virtue as health food.
I am a nutritional quagmire.

Speaking of which, our fridge has a tray that holds ten eggs, so when I come home from shopping, I have to eat two eggs right away. Ticks me off, because I hate eggs.

This space for rent.

Isn’t that weird? I had a fridge once that only had space for 9 eggs! Who the hell buys eggs in packs of nine??? It’s just not done!

There’s a GQ question in there, I think…

I’m a munchie consuming machine - it’ll kill me one day (but I don’t mind…) - and yeah, they disappear in two days. Even chicken lasts longer, and I luuuurve chicken!

“Well, roll me in eggs and flour and bake me for forty minutes!”
