What's Growing in my Pantry???

...Friday after my 11 mile run, I knew that if I sat down I would never get up so I tried to keep busy doing laundry, cleaning out the guestroom, getting ready for the trip to KC this weekend and cleaning out the pantry. Uh...this is what I found:
What is it? POTATOES!!!
Apparently we don't eat potatoes fast enough and then they grow crazy roots in our pantry!!! Good thing I found this baby during the daylight hours and not in the dark or I would have been FREAKING OUT!!! So...what's growing in your pantry?

I have definitely found the same thing in my pantry! I never buy potatoes anymore unless I am going to use them right away!

Mine turn out the same way..I buy instant :)

Meredith said...

LOL...I have also seen the same thing. Now, I buy the half-bags!

That is crazy!! Mine do that too!! I can't believe your run is so close, I can't wait to see how you do!

That's crazy, I agree in the dark that could definitely appear to be a mutant monster. Awesome job on the running, you're a rockstar! I could barely do a 5K before I was preggers.

OMG- CRAZY!!! haha, I can't tell you whats growing in my pantry, because I don't cook enough to buy stuff thats not instant or canned...so sad.

I cleaned out my cupboard last night cause when i opened it, it smelled a little moldy like- I had 5 bags of bread, with 3 pieces of bread in them. I was like "Wait--what?" Why did I not throw them away? Why did I open another bread without throwing them away & how the hell did I get 5 of them up there. Yeah..growing green mold. Classy. :)

Cool science experiment. We are pretty good about getting rid of unused food, but a trip to the in-laws house and going through their pantry and fridge is like an episode of Man vs. Wild.

I would buy a bag of potatoes and have that happen within a week. My mom told me to take them out of the plastic bag and stick them in a wooden crate or a brown paper bag, so I did and the ugly roots never came back!

Good luck with your run girl! Keep a steady pace and just look forward to that finish line!

I just had to laugh because we've had this happen before. I'd rather find them growing than rotten and smelling. I think we struggle more with bread going back than anything else.
