Such a treat ! These wonderful friends spent a few hours throwing away all of our old spices ( 3 garbage cans full) and food. The oldest spice was some "Old Bay" from 1989; they kept it in a plastic bag to show me. Hey, gimme a break, I know YOU all have at least one outdated item in your pantry. :) Oh, sorry Deb - Jake just informed me that you never have "old stuff" in your cupboards; I believe it.
