Let's see ... I've got gravy left over from Thanksgiving, 10-day-old chili, mozzarella cheese that's a month past its expiration, a bag of lettuce mix that's becoming mush in a day or two, limp celery, a couple of squishy tomatoes ...

And then there's the edible stuff.

Hands off, I need all that stuff for when I come back from the in-laws ! Believe me I will need comfort food big time....
And therapy, a long holiday and if I wasn't a teetotaller I might just start drinking as well.
