I noticed a week or so ago, my pantry had a weird (bad) smell. I pulled it apart thinking a potato must have fallen from its spot or some other item had fallen. To be honest, after we had a mouse over a year ago, I was thinking that one of the traps had caught something. But no, everything was neat and tidy.
Yesterday, the boy was looking for something to snack on from the pantry and I heard him gag. He was holding a baggie with a brownish red liquid in it and asked, "How long ago did you buy roast beef?".
Ack!!!!!!! In my morning haste (and I don't remember how long ago I bought roast beef), I must have made the girl lunch and absentmindedly put the baggie in the cupboard instead of in the fridge.
I am dancing with joy over the fact that the mystery smell has been solved. And I wasn't the one who had to deal with it.
