Bread from 2014 Sketch

Well, sort of bread.  I was looking for a souvenir that I haven't sketched for the big sketchbook.  I found this pot with bread mix in the cupboard.  When I finished my sketches I turned the tag over to see the directions.  I was wondering if it was yeast bread.  To my surprise the tag says, "Best if used by July, 2014!"  Can you believe that?  I don't remember if I bought it to use myself or for a gift. Surely the leavening agent is past its time... or the bag may have bugs.  Funny!

Number 5, souvenir - bread mix in brown bag that you open, mix and bake in the flower pot
Number 6, treasured item - my turquoise and silver bracelet and ring that belonged to my mom
For Scavenger Hunt 475

The bread mix is from Patti's Settlement in Paducah, Kentucky. https://www.pattis1880s.com/ A great restaurant, don't miss it if you are in the area.  The bread is wonderful and their signature, 2 inch pork chop, is excellent!  The website lists their address as Grand Rivers, Kentucky.  It is just out of Paducah.  We have eaten there about 4 times, now.  Sooooo good!

I thought I was the only one who would find things like that in their cabinet. lol Love the jewelry that belonged to your mom...quite a treasure!

Thanks, Joan. I still haven't opened the bag of mix!
The jewelry made it through the fire because my sister had the bracelet and I was wearing the ring. My sister gave me the bracelet this past summer when we were in New Mexico. Nice!

I opened a can of pumpkin to make a pie for Thanksgiving, but the pumpkin didn't look right. Looking at the date on the can, I realized it was several years old. Oops. Fortunately I had a second can that was not so old.

Bag Blog, yuck! I go through my pumpkin more often. Ha. I use it to make a carrot cake when I don't have carrots to grate. Not as fluffy, but tastes the same.
