The mysteries of being part of a largish family

Last night, son #4 was putting the OJ back in the fridge and talking to his brother. "I'm putting this away because I like OJ and I don't want it to go bad...does OJ go bad?"

Yep, put 6 people in a house and you will never have the opportunity to know if orange juice can go bad. It just goes away.

Well, then, from a family of four where only three people drink OJ, yes, it does go bad.

We are a family of two adults and I buy BIG containers of OJ (the "not from concentrate" kind... whatever brand is on sale) and have yet to have one last long enough in this house for it to go bad!

Funny! My gal has had an extremely hard time going from a small family of three where she was practically guaranteed whatever leftovers she wanted to a house of five where there's almost no such thing as leftovers.

Orange juice does go bad though, I agree with Sue. But not in our house.

I bet he also doesn't know that bacon has an expiration date.

Bacon goes bad??? I didn't know that. That is something that NEVER lasts here. We love bacon. Especially the smoked bacon we get from a local butchers. Expensive (because you have to order a side of pig to get it), but SO worth it.
