Lessons Learned....

As I mentioned in an earlier post, LDBoy and friends hosted Thanksgiving.

They are also hosting Christmas Eve.

It will be fun I am sure...

After we get a few things taken care of...

Ya see, by the time Thanksgiving dinner was served and enjoyed, I was tired and decided I would ask LDBoy and G-Man to take over the clean-up duties...

First mistake...

Second mistake was not believing G-Man when he told me later that night that they had not even looked at what needed cleaned up.

After I left, apparently the boys enjoyed a few rounds on the trampoline and a whole lot of video games...

So when I stopped by earlier this week just to inventory what was leftover from Thanksgiving by way of non-perishables and to see what ovenware I had left there that I could use again...

Well, I found a whole lot more leftovers than I bargained for...

I had left 2 roasters there and figured I really only needed one for Christmas.

I found them both sitting out (not where I had left them) with the lids on them...

I flipped the lid on the one I was going to take....

Holy Green and Black and Ripe...WTF????

Well, you cooked the turkey in a bag - we thought the roasters were still clean...

And remember the industrial size fridge???

Yeah, well there is a downside.

There is so much room in there that there is no hurry to clean out leftovers...

As of last Thursday, there were Thanksgiving leftovers galore...

Green potatos and ham, black beans, and wtf is that???

You boys got some work to do before christmas Eve.

I will be sending daily friendly reminders...

Peruby, he and I both ran for the bathroom...

CatLady, maybe its a gift for someone...hopefully not me...

I think the reminders worked...I have confirmation that the roaster and fridge are clean...

Nothing says happy holidays like a little food poisoning.

Hmmm...wonder which one of us he wants to get rid of - so bad that he is willing to take the rest of us down with them....

Oh, wait...you meant accidental food poisoning...
