But I am patient. I will persevere, and I will triumph over the perishables. The lettuce will fall! The eggs will quiver before my wrath! Or something like, anyway.
I suspect that part of the problem is that it was *shudder* springlike here today, and just as fall brings about the urge to squirrel away food in the freezer and the pantry, spring brings the urge to clean them out! But tomorrow I will counter that urge by putting banana bread in the freezer instead of removing something. After all, it'll use up three bananas and two eggs, and that counts for a good deal.
