I'm contemplating eating a wee slice of vegan cheesecake I made 2 weeks ago. What could happen? I believe in the healing power of microbes, something my daughter and I disagree about. She comes to visit and she stands at my fridge with the garbage pail. She asks (in an accusatory tone) how old things are. Then she chucks the offending item in the garbage. I am usually meek while this is going on, occasionally lying about the relative age of the lasagna or fruit salad. You can cut mold off cheese, right? I mean, cheese IS mold. And certain things taste better the longer they 'marry'. Like spagetti sauce. I think she thinks I'm trying to poison her. But I'm not.

I got my eyebrows dyed today and now I look like Groucho Marx.

My boyfriend is the same way about things going bad in the refrigerator. When he asks me if a food went bad, I say "no" without even looking at what it is. It's fine!

I used to dye my eyelashes. I love thick eyebrows too.

Do you know the old George Carlin routine about meatcake? I'm afraid I'm on the side of food tossing, by and large. :)

(I dye my eyebrows and eyelashes regularly-- otherwise they're invisible.)

Valerie-Food going bad, like robbing a convenience store??

Beloved-Welcome and yes, I heard George on this topic, esp the empty plate in the fridge, and the slimy asparagus.

RK-I'm still alive after the cheesecake which was delicious!
