good idea, but she has to pawn off those frozen cakes on someone, I have done that and she freezes the dessert I bring!! SO either way I get stuck with at least 1 year old frozen cake!!! This is all in fun mind you.

It probably goes waaay back to earlier years when they didnt have much $$ had to save or go hungry, and carries over to now - a lot of people tend to be savers (myself included to a degree) - but it's a good feeling when the stuff in the back of the freezer is dug out and dumped (what the heck was it and why did I save it - ?!?!) but I wouldn't subject my relatives to it (thanx but no thanx!), LOL! Anyway, have a fun afternoon and enjoy the cake (j/k!).

LOL! At least she's in Bergen County where the malls are closed on Sunday. I love driving on Routes 17 & 4 on Sundays.

Bring it home make sure it's totally unfrozen, cut it in half and playfully you and your spouse squish it on top of the head and or in each others faces.

That's about all it's worth.

Not worth getting sick over that's for sure and an expense unfortunately when you purchase something nice and the MIL freezes that - chalk it up as "a small expense" to see her I guess.

I have to clean my mom's fridge out every year or so. I throw out everything, theres nothing like italian dressing with an expiration date of June 2003 for a nice homemade salad. It's a frugal thing.
