Do you want to know why I go shopping every day? It's because if I try to store something for any length of time the bugs get to it.
Pasta, beans, flour, corn meal -- all of it. It has a rediculously short shelf life before the bugs take over - and start laying their eggs.
I need a HUGE refrigerator to keep everything safe!
If you are thinking of being an entrepreneur in Brazil -- invent a refrigerated spice rack. Trust me.
Today I wanted to make beans - but no. Fouled by the bugs. Have to go buy another bag. And wash out the plastic container I had the never-opened, sealed bag of beans stored in. Sigh.
Oh well - at least there are sweet fresh mangoes...
