Tonight is garbage night. Meaning, the garbage is supposed to go out tonight to be collected sometime very early tomorrow morning.
I decided (after being gently reminded) to clean out the fridge before the garbage goes out tonight. (As opposed to many weeks, when, just after the boyfriend takes out the garbage I start saying "Oh, we should have thrown this out...")
As I cleaned out the fridge, I came across this little container of fresh mozzarella I had bought either on Election Day or Veteran's Day, I can't remember which.
Is it still good? Or has it gone bad? Maybe the fact that it's fresh would mean it would survive longer - since it was fresher at the time of purchase? Or, maybe it would mean it would go bad quicker, since it wasn't vaccuum packaged and whatnot?
I didn't see any obvious blue or green spots. What else can you do besides giving it the sniff test?
I opened the container and took a big whiff.
And my nostrils were engulfed in the nastiest smell ever.
And there is no way to get such a disgusting smell out of your nose. I tried sniffing other things, like sticking my nose into a container of Ghiradelli Hot Chocolate Mix, but everything smelled like nice stuff mixed with rancid cheese. I'm afraid this smell will be up my nose forever.
I totally need to invent the nasal equivalent of mouthwash.
