I'm pregnant and especially irriated at DH this morning!!!! I had to make a rule that we can only have two open boxes of cereal at any one time. He would gladly open up ten boxes and eat the first fresh bowl out of each, and then throw nine away next month when they are stale.
Usually, he follows this rule. But this morning, I realized he opened up a third box without finishing an open one. No biggie.
I decide to use up the open boxes by making Cereal Treats ... basically the same recipe as Rice Krispie Treats, but with whatever leftover cereal & nuts we have on hand.
I get out the basket with the marshmallows in it, and he has opened the bag to eat several of them for his evening snack. ARGH! So now I can't even make a full recipe of RKT's.
In the same bin, I notice he has done the same thing and opened up a bag of chocolate chips, so now I can't even make a full recipe of CC cookies.
He did this to me several times this summer too. I would buy everything to make S'mores while camping, and before we left, he would eat the candy bars.
Small infractions, I know, but I am pregnant and that is my excuse for irritability!!! I'm still mad! I made a "candy" bin, and a "no touch" bin... so we will see if that works.
What do you do to make sure you will still have the ingredients when you go to make certain dishes?
