I had cheesecake for lunch yesterday...

Wednesday, November 21, 2012

The thing that I forgot about Jeff's parent's house is how much I *hate* trying to eat here. The fridge is absolutely full of questionable content, as is the pantry. I don't know what's safe to eat, what's not, and there's no room for us to bring or buy our own groceries even if we wanted to. For this reason, we often end up going out to dinner or ordering in. It gets really expensive, really quickly.

It makes my stomach turn, trying to find something to eat or try to find a place to put something away. Yesterday, we had cheesecake for lunch because we were at Jeff's grandma's house and she treated us to it. Today, I had a soggy salad and some cornbread left over from last night's dinner. Jeff didn't have lunch because soggy salad didn't do it for him. We're going out for pizza tonight.

The good news, I suppose, is that I found some eggs that were fresh and usable, and a loaf of bread in the freezer. There was a melon on the counter that was over-ripe for my tastes, but suited Jeff alright. So, this morning, I was able to piece together a pretty good breakfast that got us through the day:

I can't believe I thought that the food would be better here than at home over Thanksgiving. In every other aspect, this trip is great--We get to visit Jeff's family, I get to share stuff with Jeff's mom as far as wedding planning is concerned, and we get to see our friends, too. But as far as food goes? This trip kind of sucks. It's not what I somehow imagined it would be. I don't know if I would say I'm upset, but I would say I'm uncomfortable/disappointed/con
cerned. I had a grandiose idea about preparing a meal for friends here--and while the kitchen is spectacularly clean, the refrigerator and the pantry just turn me off to such a degree that I wouldn't invite friends to actually eat here. :( Sad sad..

    Wow...I thought my fridge is full with all the Thanksgiving leftovers...it's probably fuller than it's ever been...but it's still not as full as that! The thought of old food going bad mixed in the fridge with the food people are actually going to eat is really icky. So sorry you have to deal with that!

    Yuck. Sometimes I think my fridge is too full, but then I remember there are 3 single people all buying separate groceries, and it's still nowhere near that full! And our pantry looks bare by comparison. Hahaha. Your breakfast looks yummy though :)

    Can you offer to organize/toss unnecessary food items? Or would Jeff's mom get offended?

    Sorry dear. Just make the best out of it. At least you're only there a week and don't have to live like that!;-)

    Happy turkey day!
