    Default Things you do that defy logic

    Tonight I cooked a meal that suggested cumin seeds be added as an optional extra.

    I go to my spice collection. I find cumin seeds. Check the expiry date...2006

    I decide not to use them, but instead of doing the logical thing and throwing them in the bin, I put them back...IN THE PANTRY. Then I shake my head at my own buffoonery.

    Is anyone else guilty of this level of idiocy? Do share!

    I used curry powder the other night that had a best before date of 2002! Thankfully I lived to tell the tale.

    Haha!!

    If i go to a cafe and the savoury things ( sandwich fillings, onions, tomato, ham etc) are in the same window space as the muffins and cakes, i cant order a muffin! I fear it will taste of onion!! Same as at home. If i bake a cake or anything sweet it has to go in the drinks fridge in the garage. Is that over the top? Does it defy the logic of most people

    This is one of those threads that I read and instantly want to join in and feel like I should have a million answers but then can't think of anything.

    I'll be back...

    I iron my pillowcases. Even if I'm literally about to go to sleep and I've washed the sheets that day I will still iron them. Never mind that they get all crushed on the first night and I'll happily sleep on crushed pillow cases for the rest of the week..

    I'm sure DH could come up with many more about me haha

    I love coffee, live on it really. But I cannot drink a cup of coffee in the morning if I haven't had a cup of tea first. Just can't do it.

    Oh you're my kind.
    I must. ..must have tea in the morning. Even though I love coffee.

    My DH irons his jocks.
    That defies logic.

    I use homeopathic remedies like teething tablets and rescue remedy. I feel silly as my logical brain tells me it's a crock- there are no working ingredients in there and they are disproven time and time again - but I still buy them and think they work anyway.
