Sigh ... ... ... ...
Seems DH can't handle the little fruit/drain flies. His solution is bomb the house. My solution takes longer, but isn't going to kill me off either. So ... this morning, I began making some little traps to catch the little bleeps. I have drain cleaner cleaned the drains. I have picked up and zip baggied all the used plastic utensils and rotten fruit that I didn't use in the traps. We shall see!
Of course, I am shot. I am not cut out for much kitchen duty anymore and most of my good time has been used on the blueberries and my little cuttings. Things got kind of carried away in the kitchen. I still have to vacuum out the kitchen cabinet - flour bugs - I haven't been baking much and the flour became a hatchery. The new flour is stored in the refrigerator - a small 2# bag this time. I have kinda been waiting for him to do that, but I can see he's not going to touch that. I hope I can get it all sucked up. They ate holes in the bag! (Got them in the powdered sugar too - time to throw it out anyway, haven't made frosting in a very long time.) It disturbs me that things come to us from the store with the bug eggs already in the food. I guess the food police allow so many parts per - in each batch. EW! I have even opened packages of stuff like stuffing mix etc. that's not out of date and there they are.
Ready to start supper yet? Look carefully, checking dates is not the end all. Mwhahahaha!
I opened the pantry where I keep my heavy glass pans etc. that I don't use anymore. Hmm, do you remember my last 'helper' the one that put stuff away so well? There inside (after a huge swarm of those pesky flies escaped) was a bag of foul smelling soup that used to be potatoes. (I think) My nose must be shot, or got used to the smell gradually. As soon as I moved it. She had tucked said whatever inside my roasting pan. I had always wanted a helper before I finally got one, proves one should really and truly be careful what they wish for!
