Gourmet MId-Night Snacking with Abby
I found this opened package in our food storage room, which just happens to be across from Abby's room downstairs. I noticed a little trend.. .10:30 at night, Hall light on... Pantry Door open, but it took me a while to figure out what was going on in there until I went down to search for some canned mushrooms.
Jaxon was the first person interrogated. He denied having ANY part in the missing noodles.. but you know, he IS my SNEAKER.. so he has a pretty BAD WRAP for sneaking food. Especially contraband, since he is on a Gluten Free Diet . (I am going to do a Gluten Free Progress Post soon)
Next was Abby, (the shelf was too high for Wade) she has been on a little "lying" streak lately, so, before I approached her I said... Just tell me the truth, FIRST. This seems to work, and it is easier to show clemency when the truth comes out, isn't it? She admitted plainly that after she is tucked into bed, she goes in for a "mid-night" snack, because she is hungry.
She had blazed through almost an entire bag of dried spaghetti noodles all on her own for what she CLAIMS was about a two week period. . . . Weird, since there were LUCKY CHARMS on the top shelf... Just a little more climbing, and her "mid-night snack" would have been a LOT more rewarding.
