I just cooked stir fry with fresh chicken and one of those frozen stir-fry mixes. As I was serving it, I found what looked like pasta. WTF? Sure enough, I looked more closely at the bag and yep, freaking pasta in the stir fry! Who wants pasta in their stir fry???

Can it be saved? We all react to CC. Can I wash the other veggies and chicken off? Or should I just give it away?

I think it would be best to give it away :)

Throw it or give it away. I once fell for that. Saw an ad on TV for some frozen product and actually went to the store to look for it. Luckily the pasta was big and obvious. And then I thought... What in the world was I thinking? Same thing when I woke up in the middle of the night and thought I could buy pies for my daughter's birthday at school. Somehow I was thinking fruit. Totally forgot about the crust. Doh!

I'll give it away. I'll be seeing most of my family this weekend. Surely someone will want a delicious stir-fry!

The kids and I wound up eating beans and rice, which was delicious. I cooked another chicken breast for lunch tomorrow and hubby ate it while I was putting the kids to bed. grr.

Stinks too b/c I re-contaminated my wok and one of my wooden spoons. :(

And that, gentle reader, is why it takes me so long to buy groceries. We have to read the labels, even of the picture looks good.

Reading labels is something I usually do religiously, but this was probably something I bought while attempting to shop with the kids on a Saturday afternoon. Either that or I was in a gluten fog from passing the bakery too slowly.

That's my story and I'm sticking to it. ;)
