I knew that I had too many. Why is it that sometimes when you can't remember if you have any while you are at the grocery store, you just go ahead and buy some anyway? Well, that's me and karo syrup.
I've known it for a long time. At one time, I had 6 bottles of karo syrup. When I first realized it, I just went cold turkey. Everytime I wanted to make something with karo syrup, I just wouldn't buy it. Because I knew I had it. One time, I couldn't remember how many I had gotten down to so I bought one, then found three more. So, I just decided NO MORE karo.
Well, tonight I decided to make Special K bars. I looked in every cupboard, every cabinet, every shelf, and I began to panic. Until I finally found it. My last bottle of karo syrup. Now the trick is going to be knowing how many times I have used it so that I don't go overboard again.
Last night Haleigh made my world famous chocolate eclair. You're supposed to drizzle chocolate ice cream topping over it to make it even more scrumptious than it already is. She couldn't find any chocolate topping so she had to skip that part.
While I was searching for the karo syrup, I found three containers of chocolate ice cream topping... and four bottles of vinegar scattered throughout the kitchen.
Just thought I'd share that. I know - it doesn't matter to you. But, maybe I could use my blog as my personal grocery checklist since nobody reads it anymore.
